Ventrac’s sidewalk Drop Spreader

The pitch: Ventrac’s new sidewalk drop spreader is designed for the commercial snow contractor who needs a tool for spreading a variety of deicing materials with precise flow control.

  • With a narrow frame and a 40-inch drop pattern, this spreader is 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 spread both coarse and free flowing materials. A gate adjustment allows for fine tuning flow rates based on the type of material being spread and the desired quantity being applied.
  • The wireless remote control regulates five motor speeds for quick flow adjustments from the operator seat. The agitation system prevents material bridging and eliminates the need for a traditional, noisy vibration motor.
