SnowEx® HELIXX™ 11780 Poly Spreader.

Forget everything you thought you knew about poly spreaders.Featuring a 1.5 cu. yd. capacity, the HELIXX Poly Hopper Spreaders are a from-the-ground-up design based on extensive testing and three decades of SnowEx® hopper spreader innovation. The exclusive material delivery system vastly outperforms traditional augers, delivering unmatched material flow.


  • Advanced Salt Delivery: The patent-pending corkscrew – or “helix” – design of the HELIXX material delivery system is optimized for efficient and cost-effective use of salt and was designed to operate in the target range for salt spreading best practices. The innovative design helps prevent clogs and delivers a material flow superior to traditional augers.
  • Triple Threat: Spread, pre-wet or spray with one machine. By adding pre-wet tanks, a pump and a spray kit, the HELIXX spreaders not only pre-wet materials, but they can also be used for spraying liquid brine directly onto the driving surface for anti-icing applications. The components offer a simple plug-and-play installation, meaning a contractor can upgrade to pre-wetting or direct liquid applications at any time.


  • Full Length HELIXX and Multi-Dimensional Tub: The HELIXX runs the entire length of the hopper with variable flights. Combined with strategically positioned ribs/angles within the poly tub walls, this promotes the best possible material flow and even unloading.
  • Cab Forward Design: The cab forward hopper delivers better payload distribution to reduce stress on the truck.
  • Material Leak/Spill Prevention: The HELIXX extends beyond the hopper and into the patented pre-wet mixing chamber to help prevent leaking/spilling during transport while providing an ideal location for pre-wetting material.
  • Stainless Steel Frame: Constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the frame features a unique leg and sill design to form a ridged backbone structure for greater durability.
  • Chute Baffle System: Baffles within the chute direct material to key areas on the spinner resulting in a remarkably even and consistent spread pattern, as well as reducing material directed back at the vehicle.
  • Spinner Height Adjustment: Three spinner height adjustments allow spreaders to achieve a consistent spinner height of 18 to 22 inches off the ground, regardless of vehicle type (Optional).
  • Dual Variable-Speed Control: Allows for variable control of spinner and HELIXX system speeds for precise material delivery, whether at low or high output. Features auto reverse and integrates with accessories (including pre-wet and direct liquid application).
  • Simple Installation: Only requires a single 4-pin wire routed into the cab to install the compact control.
  • FLEET FLEX: The FLEET FLEX electrical system provides a consistent electrical platform and complete fleet interchangeability between all HELIXX spreaders.
  • No-Blast Startup: For maximum material placement and control, the spinner doesn’t blast upon startup, instead starting at the desired speed setting on the dial.
  • Flip-Up/Removable Chute: Remove a single pin to flip-up the chute, or two pins to take it off entirely, for easy hitch access and more flexible storage.
  • Dump Switch: Rear-mounted dump switch allows operators to quickly dispose of spreading materials left in tub/material control chamber.
  • Rear-Mounted Gear Box: Easy access to motors, drives and other key components maximizes serviceability.
  • Work Light: Offers better visibility at rear of spreader during night applications.
  • Vibrator: Attached to structural cross member, it vibrates the entire unit (tub and sill) to maximize flow of bulk materials.
  • Top Screen: Top screen ensures material that enters the hopper is consistent size by breaking up any large clumps and filters out large debris to ensure proper operation.
  • Fitted Tarp: A tarp fitted to the spreader’s dimensions protects material from outside weather elements and keeps it dry.
  • Fork Pockets: For simple install and removal, fork pockets are integrated into the frame legs.
