The Best Salt Spreaders for the Biggest Trucks on the Market
Are you looking for the best salt spreader for the biggest trucks in your fleet? Look no further than Sno-Way! We know that there are many truck sizes that contractors use throughout the year for a variety of jobs.
Some jobs really need the size and power of the larger trucks to accomplish the task at hand. Contractors need those trucks to be able to multitask as the demand for a more efficient workforce increases. Trucks are not created equally, why should your snow and ice management solutions be? Contractors with larger trucks are looking for salt spreader solutions that have increased capacity and the features to control them more efficiently.
Class 5 Trucks and Higher Require Unique Solutions
Class 5 trucks and higher provide more power with more options, but that increase in payload and power comes with challenges. These are the beasts of the work truck world and they need unique solutions to help them achieve their tasks. With their increased payload possibilities a contractor can carry more material to cover a larger area.
With salt spreaders, it isn’t as easy as just increasing the hopper size. You have to consider the framing to support the weight of the extra material. Additionally, changes need to be made to allow the material to flow properly through the mechanism. Lastly, we wanted to ensure that our salt-wetting option was scalable for the larger salt spreader models.

Our engineers thoroughly researched the needs of snow and ice management specialists. Then they set to designing a salt spreader series that would work for them no matter the size of their operation. Large or small, Sno-Way has a salt spreader solution engineered for your needs!
There are plenty of salt spreaders on the market. But you don’t want just any salt spreader. You want the one that is going to get the job done consistently and be durable no matter how often it gets used. You want to be able to rely on it year after year. That is what makes our REVOLUTION V-Box Series such a great bargain! You get the best for your money as it pays back your investment season after season!
A Revolution in Salt Spreaders
The Poly Dual Electric RVB spreaders are built for the professional snow and ice removal specialist. The Revolution RVB3500 and RVB4300 spreader models use a heavy-duty electric motor with a .6-horsepower direct-drive gearbox to run the auger. A 1/3-horsepower electric motor and a direct drive gearbox run the spinner. Both motors and drives are fully enclosed so that water and salt do not penetrate.
One harness supplies all of the power from the battery to the hopper, with a water-tight Duetsch connector and seal to connect them. The harness is plug-and-play for accessories with no cutting or splicing required. We have also provided precut holes in the framing to allow for the wiring to be tucked away and safe from pulls or cuts.
Speaking of the frame, the RVB spreaders are outfitted with a frame with a triple-protection coating. We start with zinc phosphate wash as an initial layer to prevent corrosion. This is followed by an automotive-style E-coat that penetrates the metal, bonding with it electrically to the metal. This primer method prevents rust from ever starting. We complete the process with a military-grade powder coat for a tough exterior.
The inside of the poly hopper walls is designed for maximum flow of the toughest materials to minimize material bridging. The Poly Hopper is mounted on an E-Coat primed and then Powder-Coated custom frame and drive support to give you a spreader that will provide you years of service. Sno-Way is known for having the best spread pattern in the industry. The Sno-Way RVB spreaders will NOT disappoint!
The Revolution V-Box family has a roto molded perimeter with a ribbed hopper, supported by a custom frame and drive support. The easy on/off stainless steel and roto molded chute has a 16” four flute poly spinner to provide you long life and superior spread pattern up to 30’. The chute is available in 16” short or 29” long models. You will need to choose one to go with your RVB Spreader, as the chute is not included with the spreader.
Part of our standard features also includes our RS Controller. The intuitive design of the control allows the professional snow and ice removal expert to gain an advantage over competitors’ units. Contractors that use the Revolution V-Box spreaders along with the RS control are able to save time, reduce wasted material and get the job done with greater profit. The RS Controller allows you to adjust auger and spinner speed independently using pinwheels to increase or decrease the speed of the auger or spinner.
What Makes the RVB3500 and RVB4300 Special
Increased Carrying Capacity: The two highest-end spreaders in our RVB line are specially designed for Class 5 vehicles and higher. The RVB3500 is rated to carry up to 3-1/2-cubic-yards of material for a Class 5 truck or larger. The RVB4300 is rated to carry up to 4.3-cubic-yards of material in a Class 6 truck or larger. To handle the additional weight, the framing around the hopper is reinforced using rolled steel and horizontal stabilizing bars.
Dual Vibrator Motors: All of these Revolution V-Box units come with two vibrator motors as standard equipment. The vibrator motor easily bolts to your hopper to provide consistent agitation of the spread material for superior flow to the spinner.
Additional Salt Wetting Capacity: Our RVB3500-RVB4300 units can carry up to six salt wetting tanks for even more ice prevention capacity. Our specialized 24-gallon Salt Wetting System (SWS24) tanks allow you to use salt brine, calcium chloride brine, or other premium branded liquids to wet your salt. The optional system makes for easier distribution in our spreader mechanism and more effective ice melting. This allows you to more effectively manage ice and use less salt. It is custom-designed to fit to the Sno-Way RVB spreaders. Its 12-volt DC motor can be controlled manually or using our RS Control. The optional six tanks can keep you on the road longer so you are able to service more clients!
Accessorize Your Salt Spreader
Sno-Way has provided a wide variety of accessories to help you to customize your Revolution V-Box salt spreader for your particular use. Choose any one of these options…or all of them!
JAM RELEASE MECHANISM: Jams can happen, even with the best spreaders. This device is a lifesaver keeping you from digging out the hopper. Simply insert it into the end of the Auger Shaft and the use of a simple ratchet wrench and you are back in business. This tool is for use on any of the RVB spreaders.
RVB SPREADER LIGHT KIT: Sno-Way’s RVB salt spreader light kit conveniently mounts to your spreader and supplies excellent illumination for increased visibility during early morning or night salting applications. Includes mount hardware and easy plug-and-go circuitry. This option is available for use with all RVB spreaders.
SWS FILLING STATION: A companion accessory for our optional Salt Wetting System (SWS) is the SWS Filling Station. The 120-volt pump fills your 30-gallon tank at the rate of 5 gallons per minute. Quick and easy, it eliminates the need to remove the tank for filling.
