Every snow fighter is different. That’s why SnowEx® tailgate spreaders are available in several models. Each unit, whether it's the SP-325, SP-575X or SP-1075X, is purpose built to address a specific need. No matter what type of material is being spread, or how large of an area is being treated, we have a solution to get the job done while reducing material waste and requiring low maintenance.
Protected From the Elements
The drive systems on our tailgate spreaders feature a patented enclosure. This sealed environment protects the motor and transmission from the elements, helping it to last longer than any competitive spreader on the market.
Have It Your Way
With a variable speed control, you can adjust the spinner speed. That gives you full control over your spread pattern…and your results.
The Height of Hopper Technology
When it comes to tailgate spreaders, poly hoppers are the way to go. They don’t rust, and they don’t add a lot of weight to the back of your vehicle. We revolutionized the poly hopper concept in the early 1990s, and it’s still taking the industry by storm.
Don’t Lose Your Lid
Unlike the lids on many competitive spreaders, our lids don’t tend to fly open in the wind. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Knowing that our spreaders would be used in harsh conditions, our engineers designed the fitted lids so that the wind would push them down, keeping them well seated on top of the hoppers.
See What You’re Doing
With the low profile design of our tailgate spreaders, you have full visibility through your mirrors. That means you can operate the unit and back up the vehicle much more safely and confidently, which is especially valuable at night.
Works Well With Others
Our tailgate spreaders are available with a wide variety of mount options, making them highly compatible with many types of vehicles. Simply put, our spreaders can adapt to your fleet, so your fleet doesn’t have to adapt to our spreaders.
