Full Length HELIXX Design and Multi-Dimensional Tub

The HELIXX runs the entire length of the hopper with variable flights, promoting even unloading of material. Steel tub walls feature multiple angles and have a step built into the tub/sill joint for better material flow.

Cab Forward Design

The cab forward hopper delivers better payload distribution to reduce stress on the truck and prevents leakage/spilling when transporting.

Material Leak/Spill Prevention

The HELIXX system extends beyond the hopper and into the patented pre-wet mixing chamber to help prevent leaking/spilling during transport while providing an ideal location for pre-wetting material.

Stainless Steel Construction

Hopper and frame are constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. The frame features a unique leg and sill design to form a ridged backbone structure for greater durability, and riveted construction provides consistent, quality joints.

Chute Baffle System

Baffles within the chute direct material to key areas on the spinner resulting in a remarkably even and consistent spread pattern, as well as reducing material directed back at the vehicle.

Flip-Up/Removable Chute

Remove a single pin to flip-up the chute, or two pins to take it off entirely, for easy hitch access and more flexible storage. Molded spinner plug must be removed when flipped for dumping.

Accessory Integration

Conveniently connect accessories directly into the hub mounted in the back of the hopper. Accessories automatically integrate with the hopper control without having to run additional wires from the front of the vehicle.

Dual Variable-Speed Control

Allows for variable control of spinner and HELIXX speeds for precise material delivery at both a low or high output. Features auto reverse and integrates with accessories (including pre-wet and direct liquid application on the 12140 model).

Dump Switch & Work Light

By using the two rear mounted conveyor dump switches, operators can safely offload material or fill walk-behind spreaders. A third switch is also provided so that an accessory work light my be conveniently controlled from not only the cab but also the rear of the hopper.

Simple Installation

Only requires a single 4-pin wire routed into the cab to install the compact control.


An extra large 12" polyurethane spinner delivers a spread pattern of up to 30' and provides long-lasting, corrosion-free performance.

Top Screen

Top screen ensures material that enters the hopper is consistent size by breaking up any large clumps and filters out large debris to ensure proper operation.


The FLEET FLEX electrical system provides a consistent electrical platform and complete fleet interchangeability between all HELIXX spreaders.

No-Blast Startup

For maximum material placement and control, the spinner doesn’t blast upon startup, instead starting at the desired speed setting on the dial.

Rear-Mounted Gear Box

Easy access to motors, drives and other key components maximizes serviceability.

Accessory Knock-Outs

Hoppers feature knock-out holes for plug and play integration of certain accessories.
