The V-Pro™ 2000 is a bulk salt spreader from SnowEx®. It is specifically designed to accommodate the bed lengths and weight restrictions of most UTVs.
Shorter and lighter than standard truck spreaders, the V-Pro 2000 lets users address applications where only a UTV can typically go, such as sidewalks, bike paths, and driveways. Its multi-angled hopper can carry 11 cubic feet (880 pounds) of salt or sand/salt mixture and is designed for efficient material movement. This creates a natural material vortex for maximum flow from the top of the hopper to the auger, helping to prevent bridging and clogging.
The salt spreader has a polyethylene construction that contains numerous advantages over traditional steel-built V-boxes. Not only does the polyethylene help resist corrosion, but it also reduces the amount of weight added to the UTV. At 280 pounds, the V-Pro 2000 can be loaded or unloaded without any special equipment.
The V-Pro 2000 has a quick-connect spinner drive assembly that can be removed in seconds for access to the hitch. Other spreaders may require that the assembly be unbolted or that the entire spreader be removed before being able to tow.
Using no engines, pulleys, sprockets, belts, or chains, the V-Pro 2000 features an efficient direct drive system to the auger. This makes it low maintenance and user-friendly. The cab-mounted dual variable-speed controller gives the operator full control over material flow and an adjustable spread pattern up to 30′. The independent spinner/auger control allows for both independent spinner speed and an infinitely adjustable ratio between the spinner and auger.
The V-Pro 2000 comes with a top screen that retains material while allowing visibility into the hopper. It also has an attached vibrator to reduce material clumping for continuous material flow. A tarp fitted to the spreader’s dimensions protects material from outside weather elements. Optional accessories include a pre-wet liquid tank system.
The V-Pro 2000 has a compact, independent weather-tight patented motor transmission and quietly delivers power to the auger for controlled, positive feed of material. It measures 64″ L x 27″ H x 48.5″ W overall. The salt spreader has a 45″ floor length 45″, 34″ floor width, 53″ hopper length, and 48.5″ hopper width.
