The SNOWEX 11790 HELIXX spreader has a capacity of 1,700L and has been built on the back of three decades of innovation. It is the spreader of choice for local authorities, highway maintenance contractors and commercial applications across the UK and Europe, and of course their home country the USA.
The HELIXX system has a patent-pending corkscrew auger delivery system, designed for efficient and cost-effective use of salt. The HELIXX auger runs the entire length of the hopper to promote the best possible material flow with even unloading and no clogging. Both models are complete with an in-cab dual variable-speed controller, for independent speed adjustment of the spinner and auger. Using this digital controller allows for precise material placement.

No engines. No pulleys. No sprockets. No belts. No chains. That’s what you’ll find (or, rather, won’t find) on all SnowEx granular spreaders. Our electric drives combined with our patented auger systems feature much fewer moving parts than competitive spreaders, meaning much less that can go wrong when you’re on the job.
