Gas Hydraulic Drive Sand & Salt Spreaders

For Sno-Bandit getting the material in the right place the first time is critical. You can easily adjust the spreading pattern to meet your unique target pattern demands. In addition, Sno-Bandit spreaders are engineered to handle virtually any material you can throw at it including salt, sand, salt/sand mix, and calcium; and spreads them flawlessly in harsh blizzard environments. Strong 14 gauge gussets every 2’ make our V box spreaders the strongest in the industry. Drop in woven (not welded) top screens break-up large clumps of material which can cause damage to the drag chain and reduce performance. In addition, bolt-in chain shields are standard to prevent material from building up in the drag chain slowing you down. A feed gate has accurate adjustments and is operated by a lever with a friction lock. Also, the extra wide rear deflectors protects the rear of the vehicle and the undercarriage. Offered as an option, our inverted-V helps prevent material from bridging and slowing down the conveyor.
