Fitted Lid With Rubber Straps
The material inside is protected by a custom-molded polyethylene lid that is secured by rubber straps.
Top Screen & Bag Splitter
The salt is loaded through and sifted by the stainless steel top screen. A hinged bag splitter easily pulls up to open bagged rock salt for easy loading. When not needed, the bag splitter can be folded down and out of the way.
Easy-to Activate Baffles
A 36" spread width makes applications on sidewalks and walking paths easy. When you factor in a 6" salt leach after application, the SnowEx drop spreaders can treat these surfaces with one or two passes and limit damage to the grass or sensitive surfaces right next to the path. The spread width can be limited to 30" by activating 3" baffles on either side of the trough.
Free-Flowing Material Delivery System
The material delivery system uses proven paddle geometry and a new interference baffle to agitate the surrounding material with every revolution. This ensures a consistent amount of material flows into the spreader trough and, at the same time, keeps it from bridging.
The entire trough drops open for easy and fast material clean-out when the job is done. Simply open a latch pin on the right and left sides, and the trough will swing backward to empty the hopper of its material. This allows you to store any leftover de-icing material in a dry, weather-resistant container until you need it for the next job.
Construction Built to Last
Laser-cut stainless steel and high strength rivets are used to construct the new DPS-250 and DPS-600. Oil filled poly bearings are used to provide a long, maintenance-free service life.
Precisely match the weather conditions to the intended material delivery rate with enhanced speed control that includes a single variable-speed control knob to control the material flow rate.
Standard 2" Receiver Hitch
A detachable 2-inch receiver style mount is provided as a standard feature and includes all the necessary hardware to attach the spreader to the vehicle. This allows the spreaders to be mounted on various equipment; anything with a 2-inch hitch receiver with sufficient payload capacity for the selected spreader.
Standard 3-Point Mount
The 3-Point Mount includes all the pins needed for installation and is intended for compact tractors and articulating loaders. The spreaders have been designed to include attachment points and hardware that are compatible with a 3-point style implement hitch. This style of attachment is common on tractors but can also be found on some other types of equipment as well.
Standard In-Bed Mount
The spreaders were designed with in-bed mounting in mind where the units can sit flat and balanced. Brackets and ratchet tie down straps are included to establish correct positioning and to secure the unit in the bed of a UTV. This type of installation reduces stress on the equipment since the weight is positioned over the rear wheel as opposed to behind them and allows for additional versatility to maneuver in tight spaces.
