Built for the snow removal professional seeking to service more accounts faster while saving on materials costs, The Boss Snowplow introduces the VBX spreader, its first V-Box Spreader featuring an 8 ft. (2.4 m) poly hopper with 2 cu. yds. (1.5 cu m) of capacity. Customers can choose from both pintle chain and auger feed options.

The VBX spreader’s stainless steel drive train components are corrosion resistant for reduced maintenance and longer life. Both the pintle chain and the auger system feature a heavy-duty design for long life and reliability. On the pintle chain option, a chain cleaning brush removes excess material, while a chain-link shield keeps excess debris from coming in contact with the chain. Also a VBX pintle chain feature, a full-length, slide-out tray captures any falling de-icing material, keeping it from the truck’s bed, which greatly reduces corrosion damage to the vehicle, according to the manufacturer.

“Professionals seeking the large capacity and convenience that a V-Box spreader offers can now get these benefits with Boss quality engineering,” said Mark Klossner, marketing director of The Boss Snowplow. “All of our spreaders are built with BOSS durability and toughness and the VBX spreader is no exception. Like our other spreader products, we’ve also added the special touches our customers have come to expect from The Boss.”

Powered by a completely sealed, ½-hp, stainless steel motor, The Boss VBX Spreader is designed for reliability. A massive gear box is outfitted with both planetary and worm gears for more robust operation and maximum durability.

A new Boss V-box control system features a dual motor control and an intuitive LCD cab control system for ease of use. A rear-mounted dump switch allows operators to quickly dump remaining material to cut down on waste. The spinner assembly is quickly removable for ease of service and maintenance.

Standard equipment includes auxiliary lighting, center high mounted stop lamps, a tarp with integral tie downs and a top screen.
