The new SuperMaxx II Spreaders are designed for large properties.

| July 23, 2013

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. – SnowEx has released its new SuperMaxx II spreaders for ice management. Available with 3.3-, 4.3- and 6.0-cubic-yard capacities, the spreader’s pre-wetting integration and weight distribution make it a viable option for large contractors and municipalities.

SuperMaxx II spreaders feature an enhanced material feed system with a new stainless steel trough, where brine and salt are mixed before being delivered to the spinner. This system offers unmatched pre-wetting performance compared with other designs.

The spreaders also feature unique cab-forward hoppers with up to 33-percent better payload distribution, resulting in improved safety and reduced stress on the carrying vehicle. The hoppers are made from lightweight, corrosion-resistant polyethylene and include a multi-angle design to promote a continuous flow of material to the auger feed system. Furthermore, an inverted “V” baffle and attached vibrator reduce clumping and allow the units to spread all bulk materials, including 100-percent salt, 100-percent sand and any combination in between.

With a variable spread width up to 40 feet, the SuperMaxx’s 12-inch stainless-steel spinner contains adjustable cups for maximum control over the spread pattern. When not in use, the modular, low-profile spinner assembly can be flipped into the upright position, providing full access to the vehicle’s hitch.

Also included is a pendant-style controller with a digital readout and dials for independently adjusting the variable-speed spinner and auger. It comes with blast and pulse features, as well as auto-reverse and overload protection. If the truck is equipped with a SnowEx pre-wetting system, the controller can toggle it on and off, automatically adjusting the flow of brine according to the spreader’s material feed rate.

SuperMaxx II spreaders are completely electric-powered with a 12-volt, ¾-horsepower auger motor and 1.6-horsepower spinner motor. To ensure durability and ease of maintenance, the motor and transmission are sealed within a weather-resistant enclosure. The control panel is also protected in a weather-resistant enclosure with a clear inspection cover.

Other standard features include a fitted tarp, top screen, LED safety strobe lights, noncombustible wiring and vertically oriented ratchet straps. The spreaders are covered by a two-year warranty.
