Bed Length: 84" (213.4 cm) Approx. Weight(Empty): 734 lb (332.94 kg) Motor: Dual Electric, 12V, Sealed Conveyor Width: 16.5" (42 cm) Spinner Size: 15.5" (40 cm) Spreading Width: Up to 40' (Up to 12.19 m) Materials: Bulk Salt, 50/50 Salt/Sand Mix, Sand Vehicle Application: Dump Body or Flatbed Trucks (Over 15,000 lb GVWR) UNIQUE FEATURES Corrosion-Resistant Hopper: The one-piece, double-walled hopper is built of durable polyethylene for corrosion-free performance, whether using rock salt, calcium chloride, sand or any other type of de-icing material. Material Delivery: One of the widest in the industry, the 15 1/2" pintle chain conveyer delivers reliable, smooth, and consistent material flow to help reduce bridging. The corrosion-resistant stainless steel conveyor housing provides added protection and reliability. Spinner & Spreading Width: An extra large 15 1/2" polyurethane spinner delivers a spread pattern of up to 40' and provides long-lasting, corrosion-free performance. Adjustable Feed Gate: An adjustable feed gate controls the amount of material flowing from the hopper to the spinner to regulate material flow and helps reduce waste when traveling between sites. Two-Piece Poly Hopper Cover: The two-piece poly hopper cover shields de-icing material from the elements. The Tornado™ spreader's overlapping hopper design seals out moisture while molded water grooves direct runoff away from the hopper. When opened, the covers form a spill guard to keep overflow material out of your truck. Drop Chute: The adjustable-height poly drop chute accommodates both pickup truck and flatbed applications, ensuring a proper spreading height. For convenient access to the hitch or for material off load, the chute assembly can be removed—no tools required. Dual Electric Motors: Two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors provide quiet, reliable and independent control over the conveyor and spinner mechanisms. The spinner motor is sealed inside a weather-resistant housing, protecting it from corrosion. Dual Variable-Speed Controls: Enhanced dual variable-speed control allows you to precisely match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. Four standard accessory buttons and a dedicated blast button provide optimum in-cab efficiency. Easy-to-understand, digital self-diagnostics alert the operator when the hopper is empty or when adjustments are needed, and LEDs make the controls easy to read. Its compact size compared to traditional controls fits easily into today's modern truck cab designs. Fleet Flex Electrical System: The Tornado™ hopper spreader is designed with FLEET FLEX technology for easy interchange between electric hopper spreaders without having to change the wiring or the controls. It provides easy operation, increased reliability, simple wiring and easy installation. Additionally, accessories automatically integrate into the control for easy plug 'n' play. Accessory Integration: Conveniently connect accessories directly into the fully enclosed accessory hub mounted in the back of the hopper. Accessories automatically integrate with the hopper control without having to run additional wires from the front of the truck. Convenient Storage: With the drop chute removed, the Tornado™ hopper spreader can easily be removed from the truck and the entire unit stands on end to minimize the space needed for storage. Support blocks are required for off-season storage. Dump Button & Work Light: Located at the rear of the hopper, two dump switches run the conveyor for easily unloading excess material or quickly ?lling a walk-behind or tailgate spreader. An additional switch is also provided so that an accessory work light may be conveniently controlled from not only the cab but also the rear of the hopper. Top Screen: The standard coated steel top screen helps break up large chunks of de-icing material during the loading process to help prevent clogging and bridging during spreader operation. Additional Standard Features: Tie-down points are included for additional stability when strapping the hopper to the truck. Before removing the drop chute, the operator can conveniently access the electrical disconnect for easy removal. The drop chute housing provides a molded-in alternate license plate location. For additional safety, bolting bars are also provided to attach the hopper to the vehicle and a Center High-Mounted Stop Light (CHMSL) is standard to meet FMVSS requirements. GENERAL Weight 734 lb.
