Somebody didn't watch the TubeYou video...
So it sounds like the helix auger design is all BS to me... Once the material is in the trough it's going to be pushed out if it's helix or a convention corkscrew auger...
VBX's have one vibrator on each side with an inverted V... SaltMutts have the one in the trough but no inverted V... Neither have been an issue as long as the vibrator is working...
I'm surprised the spinner is still on the spreader in the bed of the pickup with the trailer tongue under it....
if I was driving it...It would be gone
This guy had some issues
Yeah he does.….. the spinner is blocking his license plate....
Lol...did they give him a prototype?
I think he's a dirt monkey want to be.
Oh boy. Why do companies seem to be in a hurry to release new products which are so re-designed. Perhaps the high pitched noises from the controller are contributing to the low speed auger overload condition. I do worry about the rear portion of the tunnel and backing into something with the spinner. I myself have had to fix a few in my day. This one looks very delicate and where alignment would be paramount for the helix design.
Nah, this guy keeps it short, sweet and to the point. Stanley the moron babbles on aboot nothing for 90% of his vids.
He is a blow hard for sure.
We got the larger pre wet for spraying certain lots /areas when applicable to reduce salt usage. That's the idea at least lol
Anyone else used one yet?
Update on our helixx spreader.
Want to comment on that guys video above,
First off, I say that guy a dumbass. Probably works for another competitor.
Look how he straps his spreader down.
My cord for spinner- perfect length no issues.
No buzzing from controller-dead silent
-20 no issues with lights or spreader
Supporting the rear section- it's not flimsy, its welded up great.
Dumped 4500 lbs roughly of bulk salt- never any issues spreading on lowest or highest setting. Left it loaded for 2 days outside, no issues.
Yes-the tie down area for straps should have been done better but mine havent come undone the way it is.
We have 70 to 80 ton spread thru it so far.
2 issues I have
1. Cover could be bigger to fit better
2. We do get some salt spraying back at truck.
Overall I would buy another one.
No issues spreading, easy flip spinner assembly to fill buckets, controller works great, spreads even side to side- chute is split into two with one side higher so material is hitting spinner at different locations.
70/80 ton thru it, we are happy. We had the g2 maxx spreader and this helixx we like a lot better.
Will give another review has time goes on or if issues pop up.
What did you dislike about the G2? I currently run 4 8500 models and am considering upgrading one of them to a bigger model, which is now called a G2 version apparently. I must say, these 8500 models have been excellent for us.
We have an 8500 and 2 7550 been using them the last 3 years , other than auger jams they have been pretty good. I prefer the 8500 for the auto reverse. But I think if you rigged up the 8500 controller to a 7550 it would also auto reverse.
Issues we have had with our 7550 been some of the plugs , auger motor plug seem to fail on then so we used push on connectors and it seemed to work : some controller problems on the 7550 also
For the salt spray back at the truck hang a rubber track bed mat for a p/u off the back like a giant mud flap.
Just make sure the ladies are made of Stainless Steel....
@Shop's Lawn how's it holding up?
