BOSS Snowplow's QuickCube is a skid-steer-based salting system that utilizes weather-proof, poly cubes that can be filled with solid de-icing materials and staged at job sites in advance of wintry weather. The cubes aim to replace the need for remote salt piles, tarps, and temporary salt shelters.
A fork-shaped spreader assembly is attached to the skid steer via a universal attachment system and is used to pick up the filled cubes, move them, and spread salt. The spreader utilizes the skidsteer’s auxiliary hydraulic couplers, with very few moving parts and no electric motors, reducing the risk of breakdowns and simplifying maintenance. The weldment can be easily removed and exchanged for snowplowing implements like a box plow for more versatility.
The QuickCube is designed to allow contractors to expand their service territory in a more cost-efficient manner than a traditional truck and salter combination.
One QuickCube system consists of a spreader assembly and six poly cubes. Each cube holds 1/2 cubic yard of deicing material. A complete QuickCube system has the same capacity as a 3-cubic-yard V-box hopper spreader.
