    Sno-Way is not a distributor for Ice o Way. We sell our own private label line of sanders that are manufactured by a company called Northeast Fabricators out of Walton, NY. Having a manufacuting facility in the northeast provides us the warehouse flexability to react to our customers needs in this region of the country. I hope this answers your question.

    The folks at Southford Truck (Ice-O-Way) build an excellent unit. They conceived the original swing away chute, everybody else has knocked it off from them. Well thought out and constructed, their swing-a-way chute and spring loaded spinner coupling is the bomb. I also like the chain/sprocket coupling system they use between the gear reduction unit and main conveyor drive. Their units are durable and easily serviced or repaired.
    Your model is a Pickup Sized 08 foot 1.4 yard Stainless Steel. The 1.4 is a struck volume, meaning filled level with the top of the hopper, you can add 6" side extensions and increase it's struck capacity to 2 yards with-out having problems.

    I've been using one for 3 seasons now. The only complaint i have is that the idler sprocket assembly went south pretty quick. Last year i fabbed up a replacement. Right now I am working on installing an elastomeric tensioner in its place.
