Buyers Products SaltDogg MDS CH Municipal Combination Dump Spreader with Conveyor Chainr allows you to use a single piece of equipment year-round for municipal-quality spreading, dumping, and hauling. Unique features like roll-formed sides, a cross member-free floor, and a patented twin cylinder tailgate latch help the MDS stand out as an ideal multi-functional solution. Build The MDS (CH) features a 7 Ga. 304 stainless steel body with 53 in. sides. A reinforced multi-panel tailgate uses a patented twin air cylinder tailgate latch. The tailgate has a chute inspection door that can be removed for seasonal use. A Mailhot 3 stage, double-acting, front trunnion-mounted hoist ensures smooth dump action. The body comes equipped with Buyers Products LED DOT truck lights and rear strobes. Material Flow and Spread The MDS (CH) comes equipped with a 30-1/4 in. wide D667XH steel pintle chain conveyor with 1/2 in. bars on every conveyor link to swiftly deliver large volumes of material. Driven by a hydraulic motor with a 25:1 worm gear box, the conveyor chain is ideal for heavy, wet materials including sand, salt, gravel, or a mix. The spinner is powered by a direct drive hydraulic motor. The MDS (CH) features a heavy duty driveline with a 2 in. drive shaft, bearings with 8-tooth sprockets, and a 2 in. spring loaded idler shaft. Multi-Season Use The spreader body was thoughtfully designed for year round use. A stainless steel cover plate converts the conveyor chain into a false floor when not in use. The hitch-mounted "hex flow" spinner assembly can be removed when not in use. The "hex flow" design funnels material to the center of the 24 in. stainless steel spinner disc for even dispersion in a radius of 2 ft to 40 ft. A built-in diverter can adjust the spread pattern further. Buyers Products offers a full line of Municipal Dump Spreaders.
