SnowEx V-Maxx 8550 High Output Spreader.

SnowEx introduces the V-Maxx 8550 High Output spreader. Featuring higher material feed rates than other available V-Maxx spreaders, the new unit is designed for snow and ice professionals looking to spread high volumes of sand in one pass, rather than making multiple passes to achieve a heavy application.

Offering a 2-cubic-yard hopper capacity, the V-Maxx 8550 features a new transmission with a gear ratio of 40:1. This allows the unit to spread 295 to 680 pounds of material per minute (3.6 to 8.3 cubic feet per minute), which triples the rate of the comparable V-Maxx 8500 model.

Designed to spread sand, the V-Maxx 8550 comes standard with a patented multi-angle hopper, an inverted-"V" baffle and an attached vibrator.  For reduced maintenance, the spreader's hopper is made from corrosion-resistant polyethylene, and there are no engines, pulleys, sprockets, belts or chains to maintain. The unit is completely electric-powered with a high-torque, ½-horsepower motor, and all electrical components are fully sealed for weather protection.

The V-Maxx 8550 is controlled by a unique independent-speed controller. The separate spinner and auger speed settings maximize efficiency and can be used to adjust the spread width from 6 to 40 feet. A digital system LED display with status monitoring and system protection is standard, as well as an auto-reverse function in the event of auger jams.

Furthermore, the V-Maxx 8550 contains an improved quick-connect spinner assembly with integrated handle for easy removal. It uses a simple latch system that allows users to quickly detach the assembly in a matter of seconds. The latch also eliminates the hassle of aligning a pin during installation and removal.

Other standard features include an auxiliary light kit, auxiliary LED brake light, top screen, fitted tarp and a non-combustible HD automotive wiring harness. Optional accessories include the Salt-Traxx digital job tracker and AccuSpray material pre-wetting system.
