SnowEx SP-65 Pedestrian Salt Spreader

  • Product Details

    Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat and – more importantly from a health and safety perspective – the ground is getting icy underfoot. This can lead to at best embarrassing and at worst painful accidents, especially first thing in the morning when heading out of the house or opening your business up for the day. Thankfully a simple solution is (literally) at hand in SnowEx’s SP-65 pedestrian spreader; an entry level walk-behind broadcast spreader designed for private use, the SP-65 will allow home and small business owners to rid themselves of hazardous ice from driveways and pavements with satisfying ease.

    Sturdily built from corrosion proof polyethylene and a tough powder coated steel frame for superb stability, the SP-65’s generously proportioned 47 litre hopper can hold up to 45.4kg of bagged rock salt or pelletized material for distribution. Using a durable Nylatron® gear drive and a 25.4cm moulded plastic spinner, the SP-65 will distribute material evenly with a maximum spreading width of 6.1m. An adjustable flow gate, meanwhile, allows you to tailor the performance to the situation at hand; for a heavier pass simply increase the gate opening and advance slowly, and vice versa for a lighter pass. Moreover, for additional convenience the SP-65 is also supplied as standard with a ten gauge wire screen to prevent large chunks of grit from entering the hopper, along with a top cover to help keep spreading material dry in damp conditions.

    Easy to operate even for the most inexperienced user, the SP-65’s low weight (only 11.3kg), ergonomic handlebars and large pneumatic tires ensure excellent manoeuvrability on all surfaces, even over snow, slush and ice. This means that keeping footpaths, forecourts and small yards free from ice during the winter is pleasingly effortless, allowing you to continue with the day safely and confidently even when the weather is at its coldest.

    About SnowEx
    A recognised brand for anyone involved in the snow and ice clearance industry, SnowEx have won a hard earned reputation for being one of the foremost manufacturers of vehicle mounted snow removal solutions. Their roots were not originally involved in the manufacturing industry however; they were a small snow removal company established in 1977 and were continually frustrated with the inferior equipment that manufacturers of the time were producing. Instead of taking the put-up-and-shut-up approach, SnowEx decided to modify these inferior products to suit their needs.

    Not content with modification, they eventually manufactured their first product in 1993, a low profile salt spreader with a poly-constructed hopper - the first of its kind. To follow was another first - a swing-away mount for tailgate operated salt and ice-melt spreaders. The following years have seen continual development and manufacturing of new products from the company headquarters in Oaklands, Michigan. With a vision to be leaders in the industry, SnowEx show no signs of slowing down with innovations such as the Patented Auger Transmission System and Salt-Traxx Digital Job Tracker keeping them ahead of the competition in snow and ice management products.
