SnowEx offers the V-Maxx 8500 bulk spreader. The company’s first 2-cubic-yard capacity, V-box-style spreader featuring a hopper entirely constructed of heavy-duty polyethylene, the V-Maxx is designed to spread virtually any combination of materials.
Designed for use with pickups (8-foot beds or larger), flat-bed trucks and dump-bed trucks, the V-Maxx 8500 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.
Offering a hopper constructed of polyethylene, the V-Maxx 8500 eliminates the corrosion concerns and constant maintenance commonly associated with steel V-box alternatives, and it is also much lighter than steel alternatives. Though the hopper boasts 0.375-millimeter thick-walled construction, the V-Maxx is up to 40-percent lighter than similar capacity steel-built options and are easier to install or remove. Conversely, because of their extreme weight, steel V-boxes usually dedicate the receiving pickup for the entire season, greatly limiting the truck’s capabilities and payload.
