Ventrac Drop Spreader

The pitch: Ventrac's Drop Spreader is designed with a narrow frame and a 40" drop pattern, making it ideal for spreading material on sidewalks and other narrow walkways. The stainless steel construction prevents premature failure due to rust and corrosion.

  • The compression roller system allows operators to accurately spread both coarse and free flowing materials. An easy gate adjustment allows for fine tuning flow rates based on the type of material being spread and the desired quantity being applied.
