Airflo Stainless V-box

    For sale is a 1 year old Airflo stainless V-box spreader. It holds 3 yards with the bolt-on wood top extension, more if you heap it up. Also includes the top screen which will mount on top of the extension as well as in the v-box without the extension. The cover was custom made, and fits the top extension like a glove. The controller is custom installed in the dash panel of a 2003 Ford Super Duty, and can be swapped into any 99-04 super duty. Buyer gets to choose whether they want the dash panel or a brand new air-flo controller. Asking $4200, but will consider taking a little less without the dash panel or new controller.

    Nothing wrong with this spreader, it worked great for us this year. Only selling because we've upgraded to a bigger salt truck and spreader. It's not brand new, but it's in really nice shape and works perfectly. The rear cover was a little bent, and was straightened as best we could (see picture #6). Otherwise it has normal wear and tear. It was kept washed and greased and needs nothing to go to work.

    The subframe under the spreader in the pictures is also available free if you want it. It bolts to the top of a 34" wide chassis cab frame with 6 bolts, and the spreader bolts to it using 4 bolts in the air-flo factory mounting points. The subframe also incorporates a front stop for good measure.

    I'll be heading out to Erie, PA some time in the next couple months, so I'll deliver this for free within a reasonable distance of the interstate between Minneapolis and Erie.

    Couple things I forgot to mention. This is the dual electric model, which has independent controls for spinner and conveyor speed. Also included is the power harness, control harness, and the 4 heavy duty tie down straps it came with (not pictured as I had it bolted down versus using the straps).

    Bump TTT.

    May also be interested in full or partial trades for a blower for my bobcat 843, a 10-14k bumper pull skid trailer, or a pre-dd Blizzard 8611lp.

    Now asking $3900/BO. Nice spreader here for the money! Headed to Erie, PA in the next few weeks, so free delivery is still possible to anywhere between Minneapolis and Erie!

    Looks like a nice unit, and seems to be a good price.
    I like the mount with wheel-wells great idea.
    Good luck with the sale.

    Already set with a spreader otherwise this looks like a good deal!

    I am excited for snow with all this heat we have had lately!

    Am I correct in assuming your subframe measurements are for a super duty only, not a Chev/GMC? Meaning this is a direct swap onto my F550 but not onto my GMC3500? Very nice looking setup also.

    The subframe is 34" wide, which is the standard cab & chassis frame width. So if your GMC3500 is a cab & chassis with flat 34" frame rails, it should bolt right up. If it's a pickup frame, it may fit with some modification. The frame should go on a F550 with no issues. The fenders may no fit the larger tires of the F550 though, as it was on a 1 ton with 16" wheels.

    So this is not the one off your F550?

    Or is that white truck a F350?

    Correct. This spreader was on an F350 until this spring. The F550 in the other thread I bought in February this year, specifically so I could run a bigger spreader, as the air-flo ended up being just a little too small last winter. The fenders on the sub-frame may fit a 550 just fine, but if not, they could be cut off easily and you could mount fenders the same way I did the ones on my new F550.

    TTT we go! Lots of great interest, but no one's taken it home yet. Open to reasonable offers.

    New price, $3400/bo. Had an offer at this amount, but fell through. Want to move this so I have room for more toys. Interested in trades as well, looking for a skid loader trailer, snow blower for a 16gpm standard flow bobcat, hydroseeder, or a sidewalk machine with a blower. Heading to NY this weekend (Newark) so free delivery anywhere between here and there is still possible.

    Any interest in a Bobcat brand auger attachment for a skidsteer? Along with 3 bits from 8"-32" IIRC.

    If not, would you be willing to sell just the cover for it?

    No, I already have an auger for our bobcat. Sorry.

    Sure, but the cover is fitted to the top extension, would you want the extension as well?

    I actually have the same spreader with extensions so it would be perfect
