Bulk up with the SP-1575 and SP-1875. These tailgate salt spreaders can handle pretty much any type of material, including bulk salt, sand and salt/sand mix. SnowEx® first developed this concept in 1999, so when you use one of these spreaders, you’re putting years of field-proven performance to work.
Go With the Flow
We don’t mean to brag, but our spreaders are famous for their unrivaled material flow. That’s because they use a patented system, which includes a vibrator attached to a solid steel inverted “V” baffle, to provide a constant supply of material to the auger feed system. It can handle practically any type of material, including bulk salt and a salt/sand mix. Thanks to this unique design, material won’t stop flowing, so you won’t have to stop working.
Have It Your Way
With a dual variable-speed control, you can adjust the flow rate and spinner speed independently. That gives you full control over your spread pattern…and your results.
The Height of Hopper Technology
When it comes to tailgate spreaders, poly hoppers are the way to go. They don’t rust, and they don’t add a lot of weight to the back of your vehicle. We revolutionized the poly hopper concept in the early 1990s, and it’s still taking the industry by storm.
Don’t Lose Your Lid
Unlike the lids on many competitive spreaders, our lids don’t tend to fly open in the wind. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Knowing that our spreaders would be used in harsh conditions, our engineers designed the fitted lids so that the wind would push them down, keeping them well seated on top of the hoppers.
See What You’re Doing
With the low profile design of our tailgate spreaders, you have full visibility through your mirrors. That means you can operate the unit and back up the vehicle much more safely and confidently, which is especially valuable at night.
Works Well With Others
Our tailgate spreaders are available with a wide variety of mounts, making them highly compatible with many types of vehicles. Simply put, our spreaders can adapt to your fleet, so your fleet doesn’t have to adapt to our spreaders.
Efficient Direct Drive Transmission
The transverse auger transmission features a 12-volt electric motor for reliable operation and low maintenance. The auger uses heavy-duty, variable-pitch flighting, which provides balanced delivery of material to the spinner. This innovative system allows the tailgate spreaders to distribute bulk material with unmatched accuracy.
Bulk material can be a pain if your spreader isn’t designed to handle it. That’s why SnowEx developed the patented “V” baffle. Used in conjunction with a vibrator, this feature keeps material flowing consistently to the auger, so you don’t waste time unplugging the machine.
