The SP-65 walk-behind broadcast spreader from SnowEx offers a professional option for ice management at an entry-level price. With its 100-lb. (45 kg) capacity, the unit is ideal for use on sidewalks, driveways and other tight applications, according to the manufacturer.

Capable of handling bagged rock salt and pelletized material, the spreader includes a noncorrosive polyethylene hopper with a single-slot port design and extra-wide throat opening to ensure a smooth, consistent flow of material. Furthermore, a convenient adjustment lever on the handle allows accurate control of the feed rate.

Featuring a 10-in. (25 cm) plastic spinner and heavy-duty Nylatron gear drive, the unit spreads up to 12 ft. (3.6 m) wide. Additionally, it requires minimum effort to push over snow, slush and ice, due to large, 13-in. (33 cm) diameter pneumatic tires.

Also included is a top screen to prevent large chunks from entering the hopper and a clear hopper cover, which protects the material from weather elements, while allowing the operator to easily monitor levels. The SP-65 is covered by a two-year warranty.

Besides the SP-65, SnowEx manufactures a full line of spreaders, pre-wetting/de-icing sprayers, snowbrooms and other gear for winter maintenance applications.

SnowEx is a product division of TrynEx International. Other TrynEx brands include TurfEx turf care equipment and SweepEx broom attachments.
