SnowEx has released its new SuperMaxx II spreaders for ice management in July 2013. Available with 3.3-, 4.3- and 6.0-cubic-yard capacities, the units are engineered for superior pre-wetting integration and optimal weight distribution, making them ideal for large contractors and municipalities.
SuperMaxx II spreaders feature an enhanced material feed system with a new stainless steel trough, where brine and salt are mixed before being delivered to the spinner. This system offers unmatched pre-wetting performance compared with other designs, the company says.
The spreaders also feature unique cab-forward hoppers with reportedly up to 33% better payload distribution, resulting in improved safety and reduced stress on the carrying vehicle. The hoppers are made from lightweight, corrosion-resistant polyethylene, and include a multi-angle design to promote a continuous flow of material to the auger feed system. Furthermore, an inverted V baffle and attached vibrator reduce clumping, and allow the units to spread all bulk materials, including 100% salt, 100% sand, and any combination in between.
Other features include:
- Variable spread width up to 40 feet
- 12-inch stainless-steel spinner contains adjustable cups for maximum control over the spread pattern
- When not in use, the modular, low-profile spinner assembly can be flipped into the upright position, providing full access to the vehicle’s hitch
- Pendant-style controller with a digital readout and dials for independently adjusting the variable-speed spinner and auger
- Blast and pulse features, as well as auto-reverse and overload protection
