Equipped with updated controls and enhanced material spreading features, the new SnowEx V-Maxx G2 hopper spreaders offer greater performance and operating efficiency for contractors and municipalities on large ice control applications, according to the company.
A new dual variable-speed control is more compact than on previous models. This digital, self-diagnosing unit allows independent adjustment of spinner and auger speeds, while convenient buttons offer easy control of the standard vibrator and optional accessories. It includes an auto reverse function to clear auger jams. The control only requires a single 4-pin wire to enter the cab, making it less obtrusive and providing more location options when mounting.
The V-Maxx G2 lineup includes eight different V-box models, ranging in capacity from 1.5 to 6.0 cubic yards. Designed for use with full-size pickups, flatbed trucks, or dump-bed trucks, each spreader has a polyethylene-constructed, multi-angled material hopper that helps provide a continuous flow of material to a heavy-duty auger drive. An attached vibrator shakes the patented inverted “V” baffle to reduce material clumping for continuous material flow, whether spreading salt, sand or both.
For maximum material placement and control, the spinner starts at the desired speed setting on the dial, rather than blasting upon starting up. A wider operating range allows for slower speeds to provide more efficient use of materials, while high speeds are still available for servicing larger properties. Spread width is infinitely variable up to 40 feet.
The V-Maxx G2 is entirely electric powered – with no engines, pulleys, sprockets, belts or chains to maintain – and features an efficient direct-drive auger transmission. Located in an enclosure on the spreader and featuring weather-resistant molded connectors, the FLEET FLEX electrical system provides a consistent electrical platform and complete fleet interchangeability between all V-Maxx G2 spreaders.
Optional accessories such as lights, strobes, and pre-wet systems easily plug into the control module and are operated with simple on/off buttons on the control. Liquid tank systems for pre-wetting material are available for each model.
Other standard features include a top screen, fitted tarp, and an auxiliary LED brake light. All SnowEx spreaders include a two-year parts and labor warranty.
