V-Maxx 8500 spreader from SnowEx (with related video)
Designed for use with pickups (8-foot beds or larger), flat-bed trucks and dump-bed trucks, the V-Maxx 8500 from SnowEx features a patented multi-angle hopper combined with an inverted-“V” salt/sand baffle and attached vibrator that allows for continuous material flow, no matter what is being spread. From 100-percent salt to 100-percent sand, the V-Maxx can spread a combination of material effectively and efficiently.
The V-Maxx 8500 comes with a polyethylene hopper to eliminate the corrosion concerns and constant maintenance commonly associated with steel V-box alternatives. It is powered by a ½-horsepower, high-torque commercial continuous-duty 12-volt electric drive system, and it produces an impressive 1,800 inch-pounds of torque at the auger transmission output shaft. This fully electric design means there are no engines, pulleys, sprockets, belts or chains, which provides for low-maintenance, worry-free operation.
The independent spinner/auger controller makes the SnowEx V-box-style spreader user-friendly. The cab-mounted controller allows for both independent spinner speed and an infinitely adjustable ratio between the spinner and auger, maximizing material use. Spread width is variable between 5 to 40 feet. A digital system LED display with status monitoring and system protection is standard as well as an auto-reverse function in the event of auger jams.
Furthermore, as with all SnowEx V-box-style spreaders, the V-Maxx 8500 is built with a Quick-Pin hitch for fast and easy spinner assembly removal. Compared with competitive models that require the spreader assembly to be unbolted or for the entire spreader to be removed from the truck’s bed before being able to tow, the Quick-Pin hitch allows the conversion to take place in a matter of seconds. The feature effectively makes the service vehicle more useful, not having to be dedicated to one function, while also simplifying off-season spreader storage.
