Now SnowEx Has a Stainless Steel Hopper for Compact Trucks & UTVs
The biggest pain for ice management contractors has always been clogs in salt spreaders. Chipping away at material to keep it flowing is annoying, plus it costs time and money. SnowEx has long been known for its helix corkscrew salt spreading system that greatly reduces clogs on larger trucks. Now SnowEx is introducing the HELIXX 0.35 cubic yard stainless steel spreader specifically developed for UTVs and compact trucks! It offers many of the same features that their larger HELIXX stainless steel hopper has, but in a compact size. Now even when salting smaller areas and sidewalks, drivers can use this innovative HELIXX design that helps prevent clogs and outperforms the material flow of traditional augers.
Perhaps the greatest strength of the HELIXX spreader is the corkscrew designed full length auger. It helps distribute material smoothly and prevents clogs. But there are other noteworthy benefits of this design too. Whether you are using the original larger size HELIXX system or the new .35 cubic yard system for compact trucks and UTVs, they both are designed to extend beyond the hopper and into the patented pre-wet mixing chamber to help prevent leaking/spilling during transport while providing an ideal location for pre-wetting material. The HELIXX spreader also has a cab forward hopper for better payload distribution that reduces stress on your truck and prevents spilling during transport.
Full Length HELIXX Design
Just like its big brother, the compact truck/UTV HELIXX spreader is built for the toughest weather and is corrosion-resistant. It is also unique in that it runs the entire length of the 2.5-foot hopper with the multi-dimensional tub design and vibrator, to promote even unloading of material. The compact design is perfect for maneuvering sidewalks and small areas, but it has a spreading width of up to 30 feet so it is effective for larger areas as well.
The HELIXX spreader’s hopper and frame are constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. A unique leg and sill design of the frame provides a very rigid structure to maximize service life. To make it easier to clean or access the hitch, the chute can be flipped up or removed.
The are several optional accessories available for the HELIXX 0.35 cubic yard spreader. One is an extension collar that adds height to the hopper walls to increase material capacity. This optional extension collar increases capacity by more than 70% by adding 0.25 cubic yards of space to the hopper. Other available accessories include spill guards, inverted “V” kits for materials susceptible to compacting, vibrator kits, work light kits, strobe light kits, and ratchet strap kits.
