HELIXX™ Poly Hopper Spreader

Truck Bed

Forget everything you thought you knew about poly spreaders. Available in capacities from 1.5 to 5.0 cubic yards, the HELIXX poly hopper spreaders are a from-the-ground-up design based on extensive testing and three decades of SnowEx® hopper spreader innovation. The exclusive material delivery system vastly outperforms traditional augers, delivering unmatched material flow in Fargo.

FEATURES

HELIXX Material Delivery

The patent-pending corkscrew – or “helix” – design of the HELIXX material delivery system is optimized for efficient and cost-effective use of salt and was designed to operate in the target range for salt spreading best practices. The innovative design helps prevent clogs and delivers a material flow superior to traditional augers.

Pre-Wet and Direct Liquid Application Capable

Spread, pre-wet or spray with one machine. By adding pre-wet tanks, a pump and a spray kit, the HELIXX can not only pre-wet materials, but it can also be used for spraying brine directly onto the driving surface for anti-icing applications. The components offer simple plug-and-play installation, meaning a contractor can upgrade to pre-wetting or direct liquid applications at any time.

Full Length HELIXX and Multi-Dimensional Tub

The HELIXX runs the entire length of the hopper with variable flights. Combined with strategically positioned ribs/angles in the tub, this promotes the best possible material flow and even unloading.

Cab Forward Design

The cab forward hopper delivers better payload distribution to reduce stress on the truck.

Material Leak/Spill Prevention

The HELIXX extends beyond the hopper and into the patented pre-wet mixing chamber to help prevent leaking/spilling during transport while providing an ideal location for pre-wetting material.

Stainless Steel Frame

Constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the frame features a unique leg and sill design to form a ridged backbone structure for greater durability.

Chute Baffle System

Baffles within the chute direct material to key areas on the spinner resulting in a remarkably even and consistent spread pattern, as well as reducing material directed back at the vehicle.

Spinner Height Adjustment

Three spinner height adjustments allow spreaders to achieve a consistent spinner height of 18 to 22 inches off the ground, regardless of vehicle type (Standard on 3.5 and 5.0 cu yd models).

Dual Variable-Speed Control

Allows for variable control of spinner and HELIXX speeds for precise material delivery, whether at low or high output. Features auto reverse and integrates with accessories (including pre-wet).

Simple Installation

Only requires a single 4-pin wire routed into the cab to install the compact control.

FLEET FLEX

The FLEET FLEX electrical system provides a consistent electrical platform and complete fleet interchangeability between all HELIXX and V-MAXX™ G2 Spreaders.

No-Blast Startup

For maximum material placement and control, the spinner doesn’t blast upon startup, instead starting at the desired speed setting on the dial.

Flip-Up/Removable Chute

Remove a single pin to flip-up the chute, or two pins to take it off entirely, for easy hitch access and more flexible storage.

Dump Switch

Rear-mounted dump switch allows operators to quickly dispose of spreading materials left in tub/material control chamber.

Rear-Mounted Gear Box

Easy access to motors, drives and other key components maximizes serviceability.

Work Light

Offers better visibility at rear of spreader during night applications.

Vibrator

Attached to structural cross member, it vibrates the entire unit (tub and sill) to maximize flow of bulk materials.

Top Screen

Top screen ensures material that enters the hopper is consistent size by breaking up any large clumps and filters out large debris to ensure proper operation.

Fitted Tarp

A tarp fitted to the spreader’s dimensions protects material from outside weather elements.

Fork Pockets

For simple installation and removal, fork pockets are integrated into the frame legs.
