SnowEx’s SP-1575 is a professional grade utility spreader designed for heavy duty ice and snow clearance work, making winter risk management much less taxing. The popularity of the SP-1575 amongst busy contractors, however, is in large part due to its unbeatable versatility, as this handy spreader can be fitted to a variety of standard commercial vehicles and used with a range of spreading materials depending on your particular requirements. Thus, if what you need is a utility spreader which can be quickly adapted for an assortment of snow and ice clearance jobs, the SP-1575 is definitely the way to go.
Supplied as standard with a three-point hitch for use with tractors, the SP-1575 is also compatible with 4x4s, utility vehicles, forklifts, trucks and even ATVs (alternative mounts available separately). The true versatility of this outstanding piece of kit, however, lies in the range of spreading options on offer, as the SP-1575 is designed to be able to handle all materials, including bulk salt and sand mixtures (spreading of finer rock salt, calcium chloride pellets or ice melters requires use of TRK-1575 flow restrictor accessory, available separately). When combined with the fine flow adjustment offered by the in-cab control system, with spread pattern and material feed controlled separately for extra precision, this means that the SP-1575 can tackle just about any job with ease.
The SP-1575’s high capacity 163 litre hopper, meanwhile, holds more than enough material to tackle extensive clearance work in car parks and other open areas, with a 25.4cm reinforced spinner, a 12V electric motor in a sealed drive unit and a built-in vibrator mechanism included to ensure optimal flow at all times (particularly handy when working with bulkier spreading media). Other handy features in this respect include the SP-1575’s horizontal auger and offset spinner, along with the top screen (designed to prevent larger chunks of grit from entering the hopper and causing blockages) and protective fitted lid (keeping spreading material dry when the weather isn’t). As such even the toughest snow and ice clearance work can be dealt with quickly and efficiently, all from the comfort and safety of the cab of your vehicle.
Further convenience is provided via the SP-1575’s sturdy, low maintenance design. The absence of easily damaged pulleys, sprockets, chains or belts, for example, means that service requirements are minimal, while a durable powder coated steel frame and a corrosion-resistant polyethylene hopper will happily stand up to the rigours of heavy duty work in hostile environments. This, along with a two year manufacturer’s guarantee supplied as standard, means you can rest assured of many years of top-notch performance from this superb piece of kit no matter how long and cold the winters might seem.
