Features & Benefits HS8 Spreader for Compact Loaders

Top Tasks

  • Spread sand and salt for winter snow and ice removal.
  • Minimize slippery surfaces during winter freezing and thawing.
  • Maintain walkable and drivable roads and pathways during cold weather.

How It Works

The hydraulically powered HS8 can quickly connect to approved tool carriers with the Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system. Its self-loading hopper has an open top and can be used as a bucket to efficiently fill the spreader from a pile rather than pour material into the top. With a hopper volume of 8 cubic feet and a spread pattern that is controlled by three material flow gates, operators can spread material from 18 to 28 feet.

Bobcat also offers two cargo box-mounted spreaders designed for Bobcat® utility vehicles and Toolcat™ utility work machines, the SP9 and SP13, respectively. These tough, stainless-steel units allow for consistent, controlled material spread pattern of up to 30 feet, and they feature dash-mounted controls that are convenient and easy to use. A large 13.5 cubic foot hopper allows operators to carry more material for larger spreading jobs.
