ELECTRIC MOTORS – Two
ultra-quiet 12-volt DC direct-drive motors power the conveyor and
spinner, and are encased in a heavy-duty housing. The wiring harness is
constructed of 10-gauge automotive wire with non-combustible sheathing
(-50°C to -105°C). An in-cab console features independent controls for
the conveyor and spinner.
STAINLESS STEEL MATERIAL HOPPER –
Electrically welded high-quality grade 304 stainless steel ends and
sides sloped at 45° are constructed with channel formed top edges. 304
stainless steel vertical supports add extra strength to the unit. The
single lift point on the cross support beam is located at the unit ’s
center of gravity to allow for easy loading and unloading. The floor is
constructed of 304 stainless steel.
CONVEYOR – The
conveyor is made of 12" wide all-steel pintle chain with 3/16" x 3/4"
cross bars. Chain strength is 11,000 lbs. per strand; 22,000 lbs. total
weight. The drive sprockets are 6-tooth cast iron, on a 1-1/8" diameter
shaft. The conveyor chain has an adjustment range of 3-1/2". The drive
shaft has heavy-duty, sealed, self-aligning ball bearings with grease
fittings. The idler drum has heavy-duty 1" diameter ball bearings.
FEEDGATE – Lever operated with a friction lock for accurate adjustment.
SPINNER CHUTE ASSEMBLY – A
11.5" polymer disc with four fins is connected to a 3/4" diameter shaft
secured on the pillow block and motor bearing. The spreading material
is guided from the conveyor to the spinner plate through an enclosed
high-quality grade 304 stainless steel chute with internal and external
deflectors. Adjustable deflectors allow for complete directional spread
control and full or compact spread. Total spread radius ranges from 2'
to 30'. The extra wide rear deflector protects the rear and under
carriage of the vehicle.
