The spreader is intended to allow smaller vehicles to take advantage of the company’s IceStriker technology when spreading in parking lots, courtyards, walkways, pedestrian paths, and more. It features a stainless-steel hopper body that is corrosion-resistant and easy to clean, while facilitating smooth material flow, the company says. Material delivery is further optimized by an inverted V with a vibrator to help prevent bridging. A 2.5-inch stainless-steel auger is also included to provide a consistent material flow to the spinner.
An advanced color screen controller comes standard with the IceStriker 500, providing users the ability to either manually set a fixed auger speed or have the material spreading rate automatically adjusted according to vehicle speed.
