Rosco Mfg. offers the SpreadPro chipspreader that features a variable width aggregate hopper, ClearView enclosed cab with visibility-enhanced placement and ergonomic controls. The hopper is continuously expandable up to 16 feet, allowing the operator to change the spread width during operation. The cab is positioned at the front of the vehicle, making it easier for the operator to clearly see the work surface and potential obstacles. The operator controls all chipspreader movement and function with a steering wheel and joystick, and cab monitors indicate if more or less aggregate is needed, how much aggregate is being metered onto the work surface and other operation parameters.
