    Thats the one I was on too. I was looking for a dealer near me, but after talking to the people on that website, they are the distributor near Chicago. Snowex does have dealers dont they? I would like to take a look at the unit before just ordering online, and I certainly cant drive to Chicago to look.
    thanks for the reply

    Hi Nick
    Snowex the company doesn't have a web site. I know its crazy but they don't. They are based out of Michigan just north of Detroit. I will try to find there number for you so they can tell you who sells them. Why don't you post a message to anybody in the same state as you. Chance's are someone here on plowsite near you has a snowex. Are you looking for a tailgate spreader or a bigger Vbox like snowex 6000 or 8000?

    Good Luck Mike

    I was looking for some info on the 7500 and the 8000. Looks like they are priced pretty much the same, I wondered what the difference is? We would mainly be spreading sand too, so I wanted to know if and how well these electric units spread bulk sand. Thanks for the replies guys...
  6. I don't think you would have a problem with sand. Although you might be better off with the 7500 or the 8500 both which have a full length auger. A customer of mine just got the 7500 and love it but when we load him with Magic he needs to hold a piece of plywood because our bucket is longer than the spreader. The 8500 solves that problem but is more $$$. They are great units. The 8000 is an angled unit inside and uses 2 vibrators with a shorter auger. They have stopped making this unit I believe.

    I was leaning toward the 7500 anyway. Do you prefer the auger over the conveyors?
  8. Seems like less to break..

    I have 2 - 8500 units love them....spread 80% sand and 20% salt mix...with no problem
    The only thing is to wath the sand you are getting..make sure it doesnt have a lot of silt in it ...then you wont have to run the vibrator as much....as far as the units i would trade them for anything...love the electric power and the easy working unit!!! very simple and well built!
    Hope this helps

    I believe the phone number for Snow-Ex is 1-800-salters. I have called them a few times on my problems & very helpful each time.
