With a 1.4-cubic-yard polyethylene hopper that fits full-sized pickup truck beds, the SnowEx SP-7550 V-Maxx bulk spreader is suited for municipalities and contractors. The latest spreader introduction from the SnowEx division of TrynEx International, the 7550 is managed by an in-cab independent spinner/auger controller that allows the driver to adjust spinner speed and material flow. Spread width is infinitely variable up to 40 feet. The 7550, as with other V-Maxx models, has the ability to spread various combinations of materials, from 100-percent bulk salt to a 50/50 salt/sand mixture. An inverted-V baffle design and a longitudinal auger configuration reduce potential binding and bridging of materials. To utilize the truck’s hitch without having to remove the entire spreader, the 7550 is built with a quick-connect spinner assembly. An optional Express Mount Kit is a heavy-duty steel subframe that mounts directly to the truck-bed base, in which the spreader frame easily slides into and locks.
