Features & Benefits HS8 Spreader for Compact Loaders

Features & Benefits - SP9 and SP13 Spreader for Toolcat & UTV

Product Overview

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.

SP9 and SP13 Overview

The SP9 is compatible with the Bobcat utility vehicles while the SP13 is compatible with the Toolcat utility work machines. Optimized for efficient and cost-effective use of salt, the SP9 & SP13 is compatible with sand and salt mix, bagged rock salt, bulk salt, and dry free-flowing sand.

Conveniently connect accessories directly into the hub in the back of the hopper. Accessories automatically integrate with the hopper control with no additional wiring.
