V-Maxx™ SP-8500/SP-8550

V-Maxx™ SP-8500/SP-8550

The SnowEx® 8500 Series brings two different approaches to attacking ice. The SP-8500 efficiently spreads any combination of salt and sand, while the SP-8550 is specifically designed for higher material output for contractors who need to spread high volumes of sand in one pass.

Not Your Standard V-Box

The hopper is not literally a “V,” but instead incorporates a patented multi-angle design ensuring material from one side comes in at a different height than the other. So material is not hitting at the same level, which can lead to bridging or clogging. Instead, the very deliberate angles create a natural material vortex for maximum flow from the top of the hopper to the auger. Combined with the patented inverted “V” baffle, which is attached to a vibrator, there is no other spreader on the market that matches the flow of a V-MaxxTM.


Stay Out of the Shop…and On the Job

Equipment is only making you money when it’s working. So the less you have to maintain and service, the better. That’s where our auger system powered by the patented, totally enclosed electric motor transmission come into play. Less moving parts than any other spreader on the market means less that can go wrong…and more peace of mind at 3:00 a.m. when breakdowns are not an option.

The Best of Both Worlds

Poly hoppers are great because you don’t have to worry about corrosion. We should know … we were one of the first to develop a poly hopper back in the early 90s. But one of the concerns with poly as you get into larger hoppers is poly sag – or flexing that can occur to the hopper walls with extreme amounts of material. Not an issue with the V-Maxx. A steel frame around the hopper acts as rigid exoskeleton helping prevent loss of structural integrity. It’s much stronger than poly alone, and without the headaches of a steel hopper.

Ready to Go…and Grow


V-Maxx spreaders come standard with brake- and work-light packages, so you get everything you need to spread material right out of the gate. And all V-Maxx units are compatible with pre-wet systems, meaning when you’re ready to get into liquids, it’s ready to grow with you.

Spinner and Auger Control

SnowEx V-box spreaders feature a unique independent spinner and auger control that offers independent adjustment of the spread pattern and the rate of material flow. This includes a digital LED display with status monitoring, along with an auto-reverse function in the event of auger jams.

Quick Connect Spinner Assembly

  • Fast and easy spinner assembly removal in just a matter of seconds.
  • Unlike competitive units, no need to unbolt the assembly or remove the entire spreader from the truck bed before being able to tow.
  • Keeps service vehicle useful for other functions, and simplifies off-season spreader storage.
