    Curtis Industries, LLC Introduces “Green” Electric Drive Aluminum Spreader
    Benefits: lower fuel cost, less maintenance, quieter operation

    Curtis Industries, LLC has introduced the Sno-Pro Fast-Cast 550E, an electric drive, aluminum 1/3 yard spreader for efficient, reliable snow and ice control that is quiet and environmentally friendly.

    The new electric V-box spreader is lightweight, featuring a stainless steel carriage and an aluminum hopper that won’t rust and is unaffected by continued use of salt and sand. In addition, the new Fast Cast 550E spreader features a quiet, durable 12V 1/3 HP electric motor that draws less than 20 Amps, replacing a gas engine. This eliminates fuel costs as well as is serves as a “green” alternative. It also eliminates the need for a noisy vibrator motor, allowing operators to work both day and night without disturbing customers or neighbors.

    The Sno-Pro Fast-Cast 550E features a 500 pound capacity, wear resistant bolt-on 304 stainless floor, rugged belt over chain conveyor system, adjustable conveyor take-up bearings, spinner and conveyor control. The spreading range is from 1’ to 24’, ideal for small to medium accounts. It also offers adjustable material deflectors and an in-cab control panel. Options include a weather cover and a top screen
