    Ventrac Introduces New Sidewalk Drop Spreader

    Continuing their commitment to provide industry leading solutions for snow contractors, Ventrac is pleased to unveil the new Sidewalk Drop Spreader.

    This patent pending Drop Spreader is designed for the commercial snow contractor who needs the ultimate tool for spreading a variety of deicing materials with precise flow control. With a narrow frame and a 40" drop pattern, this spreader is ideal for spreading material on sidewalks and other narrow walkways. The stainless steel construction prevents premature failure due to rust and corrosion.
    The innovative compression roller system allows operators to accurately spread both coarse and free flowing materials. An easy gate adjustment allows for fine tuning flow rates based on the type of material being spread and the desired quantity being applied. The wireless remote control regulates five motor speeds for quick flow adjustments from the operator seat. A state-of-the-art agitation system prevents material bridging and eliminates the need for a traditional, noisy vibration motor.

    Product Compatibility
    Unique to this products' design is the ability to be universally mounted to other power unit platforms. With mounting options for a 2" receiver hitch or a category one three-point hitch, the Ventrac Sidewalk Drop Spreader can be easily attached to other sub-compact tractors, ATV's or UTV's, making this a very versatile unit.

    Standard Features and Benefits include:
    Compression Roller System
    Precision Drop-Rate Control
    Wireless Controller
    Innovative Agitation System
    Stainless Steel Construction
    Accurately Spreads Coarse and Free-flowing Material
    Universal Mounting Options
    Minimal Maintenance
    Built for Sidewalks
    Consistent Material Flow
    Increased Salt Savings
    Low Vibration
    Optional High-Capacity Extensions
    Quick Return on Investment
    Material Safety Grate
    12V Electric Drive/Transmission

    The Sidewalk Drop Spreader can be mounted on all Ventrac tractor models. While applying deicing material, a Ventrac Snow Blower or V-Blade can be mounted on the front of the tractor for more efficient snow and ice management. Made in the USA. Visit for more details.

    Let me know how you like it. I tried to order the same setup but the local reps (MTE out of Latham, NY) couldn't even show me a 3400. After over a month of waiting I ended up going else where to get a bobcat s70
