Badger Truck Equipment (BTE) has been named the exclusive Wisconsin dealer for Schmidt Snow and Ice Equipment. BTE has installed and deployed two Schmidt Stratos spreader units on vehicles for Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties.

Stratos spreaders are equipped with large capacity hoppers holding up to 11.8 cubic yards of dry material and liquid capacity of up to 1,441 gallons. Advanced engineering and design lets municipalities spread symmetrical or asymmetrical patterns of dry or perfectly mixed 70/30 pre-wet salt on the roads. Intelligent in-cab controls provide fine adjustments to the spinner, resulting in precise application and placement of the materials, and that’s money and time saved.

The impact-proof, cold-resistant polyethylene liquid tanks are designed to fit snugly alongside the front and sides of the hopper. Integrated leg stands simplify mounting and dismounting of the Stratos, making it easy to do, even when the tanks are full.

When using the smart Stratos spreaders, fewer spreading materials are being used, further protecting your vehicles, and our environment. It’s a winning solution for municipalities.

Said Shawn Centell, Sales Manager, “We are proud to represent Schmidt products and share the unique Stratos spreader with our community. We continuously strive to find product lines that give our customers the best possible solution for their fleet. This massive piece of equipment changes the way municipalities salt our roads, making the roads safer for our drivers.”
