    We have recently changed the color scheme on our 4, 6, and 9 cu. ft receiver spreaders. Units that are now shipping to distributors and retailers will be these colors. Here is a pic.

    Doug,

    That is our patented dual paddle system that we have on our receiver spreaders. It allows for positive shut off of material flow as well as setting up into different positions to allow for control of where the salt is dropped on the spinner to control the spread pattern.

    You can direct from a full 180 degree spread or have the material directed so it is thrown at 90 degree angles either left or right.

    The largest receiver spreader we make is 9 cubic foot. Here is link to some spec info on them. http://www.snoway.com/index.cfm/act/viewSeries/type/Spreader/cat/15

    Pricing you would need to get through a retailer. Here is a link where you can find CT retailer information, http://www.snoway.com/index.cfm/act/findDealer

    Wow, that thing is eye-catching!! Wonder what my dealer has? Guess I'll have to go find out. I still am partial to the grey/black though, it would match my my steel blade setup much better.lol

    PS - Hey Tom, I notice that unit has the roller on it. Is that standard on the 6 & 9 cubic footers now? If so, that just made my day!!!
