SnowEx’s V-Maxx 8550 high output spreader is ideal 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-cu.-yd. (1.5 cu m) 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 lbs. of material per minute (3.6 to 8.3 cu. ft. 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 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 an 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 ft. (1.8 to 12 m). 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 to 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.
