SnowEx SP-85SS Pedestrian Salt Spreader

  • Product Details

    According to the Hospital Episode Statistics for England, there were 7,031 admissions to hospital in 2012/13 as a result of people falling over on snow or ice. Potential for slapstick amusement aside, keeping driveways, pavements and forecourts free from ice is therefore a serious business. Luckily, however, SnowEx’s SP-85 S/S pedestrian spreader (built with a stainless steel frame for extra durability in hostile conditions) provides a quick and efficient method of clearing snow and ice during the winter months.

    Designed for professional use, the SP-85 S/S features a high capacity 76 litre hopper which will hold up to 72.6kg of bagged rock salt or calcium chloride pellets. With a maximum spreading width of up to 6.1m, the SP-85 S/S will distribute spreading material evenly as you advance using its sturdy 25.4cm moulded plastic spinner, but with an adjustable flow gate and integrated sidewalk deflectors also included it is easy to tailor performance to suit the conditions at hand. The deflector panels are particularly handy in this regard, allowing you to restrict the spread in any direction for a more concentrated flow or simply prevent spreading in unwanted areas. The inclusion of a ten gauge wire screen and a transparent protective top cover, meanwhile, prevents larger chunks of grit from entering the hopper and ensures that spreading media stays dry for optimal performance at all times.

    As a professional quality broadcast spreader, the SP-85 S/S is also made to be reassuringly tough. In addition to the sturdy stainless steel frame, for example, the SP-85’s polyethylene hopper ensures complete protection against corrosion, while a sealed gearbox further helps to ensure a long and reliable service life. Moreover, with its low weight (only 19.1kg when empty), ergonomic handles and large pneumatic tyres on a lubricated axle, the SP-85 is remarkably easy to manoeuvre on any surface, including snow, slush and ice. This means that you will be able to get any job done quickly and efficiently, ranging from narrow walkways to car parks and recreation areas, thereby ensuring the safety of those around you no matter how deep the freeze this winter.

    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.
