The Sno-Way RVB spreader line is a continuation of the PDE spreader line with a few improvements. The RVB spreaders are made in new sizes for all trucks, including UTVs, small trucks like the Ford Ranger and large trucks like the Ford F250, F350, F450 and F550.
The RVB series spreader has been upgraded from 400 grade stainless steel to 304 grade stainless steel to help prevent corrosion. The Revolution V-Box frame is sealed with an automotive E-Coat Primer and finished with a military grade powder coat. The RVB frame has wider spacing in the legs for two 30 gallon wetting tanks. Holes have also been added to the frame for routing wires to prevent the harness wires being damaged, placement for a second vibrator attachment and areas for optional transport brushes. Fork pockets have also been added for easy removal by a fork lift. Another great feature is that now the whole motor plate comes off of the frame with four bolts for simple maintenance.
The RVB hopper has a ribbed poly body and is reinforced to prevent it from deforming. Sno-Way has now integrated tie-down brackets right to the hopper to prevent pulling on the hopper body.
The Revolution V-Box comes standard with a 1/2 horsepower, heavy duty motor to run the auger and a 1/3 horsepower motor to run the spinner that are fully enclosed so water and salt does will not penetrate. Other standard features on the RVB are a top screen, Sno-Way’s patented inverted vee system that adjusts to match the spreading material. The RS control system is an intuitive controller to save time and reduce wasted material. The easy on/off stainless steel and roto molded chutes in both 16″ and 29″ provide a long life and superior spread pattern up to 30′. Optional features are a form-fitting tarp, a second vibrator for hard to flow materials and a transport brush kit to keep material inside the hopper.
