The SnowEx Vee Pro 3000 bulk spreader has a corrosion-resistant hopper and fits intermediate/import trucks and heavy-duty utility vehicles. The inverted V-style hopper carries a 0.5-cubic-yard capacity of salt or salt-sand mixture. The 285-pound spreader can be loaded or unloaded without special equipment, and a quick-release pin allows the user to quickly remove the spinner assembly. A separate spinner/auger controller is powered by independent 12-volt DC motors, making it low maintenance and user-friendly, says the company. The spreader comes with a two-year guarantee on parts and labor from the day of purchase.
