Buyers Products, provider of snow and ice equipment and work truck accessories, has introduced its new SaltDogg Under Tailgate Spreader (UTS) for trucks without central hydraulics.
Designed for 96-inch dump bodies, the UTS features a heavy-duty, 9-inch-diameter auger with 3/8-inch flighting and auger screen, a 14-inch poly spinner, and standard or center discharge. The spreader is constructed with 304 stainless steel and equipped with two 12-volt, DC direct-drive motors; stainless steel dump body mounting plates; and sealed, self-aligning 1¼-inch-diameter bearings with grease fittings.
Spreader materials can be discharged to either side of the truck: driver side for spinner and passenger side when using the optional berm chute with a material spread of up to 40 feet. For easy cleanout, the UTS includes an anti-flow plate, ball valve lockout, and a hinged, full-length trough.
