Buyers Products SaltDogg 3.5-5 Cubic Yard Electric Conveyor Chain Spreader gives contractors and municipalities a heavy duty electric spreader ready for commercial use. The 96 in., 108 in., or 120 in. hoppers are designed for dump bodies and flatbeds with a minimum 17,500 or 15,000 lb GVW (gross vehicle weight) chassis (depending on model chosen). It works with bulk salt, bulk sand, or a 50/50 salt/sand mix.
The spreader strikes a balance between the convenience and value of an electric spreader and the robust volume traditionally found in gas and hydraulic models. Its hopper and fully welded frame are made from high quality 304 stainless steel for long lasting corrosion protection. The hopper comes outfitted with a top screen to help break up clumps of material during loading.
The spreader is equipped with a steel pintle chain conveyor that features a stainless steel inverted V to reduce stress on the drive line and improve flow. The high-flow conveyor is 14-1/2 in. wide with 1/4 in. crossbars and a stainless steel floor. An adjustable feedgate with lock pin offers additional material flow control.
The spinner is powered by a 1/2 HP, 12V motor, and the conveyor chain is powered by a 3/4 HP, 12V motor. The spreader's 18 in. poly spinner casts material 2 ft to 30 ft. The spreader is available with a regular or extended chute. Two adjustable baffles allow you to cater the spread pattern to your use. The chute and spinner assembly flips up or detaches completely, tool-free, for convenient bulk unload, easy servicing, and access to towing. The spreader is controlled by a heavy duty in-cab controller with independent variable speeds for the conveyor and spinner. It also comes outfitted with four hinged-top screens with 1/4 in. bars.
