Perfect Fit for Your Needs
The Tornado Sand and Salt Spreader is available in 7- and 8-foot lengths, with 1.5-, 1.8- and 2.5-cubic yard capacities.
One Piece Poly Construction
The two-piece poly hopper cover shields deicing material from the elements. The Tornado™ spreader’s overlapping hopper design seals out moisture while molded water grooves direct runoff away from the hopper. Its domed shape increases hopper capacity. When opened, the covers form a spill guard to keep overflow material out of your truck.
Two Piece Poly Hopper Covers
Overlapping poly hopper covers protect de-icing materials by sealing out moisture. The hopper spreader lids also keep material out of the bed of the truck when filling up the hopper. Molded grooves in the dome shaped lids also assist in directing water away from the hopper.
