      Storage & Maintenance

      • When finished spreading empty hopper of any remaining material
      • Thoroughly wash spreader with a garden hose after each use. Some ice melt products, such as magnesium chloride will cause rusting to any stainless steel in wet conditions.
      • Be careful not to spray directly in the gearbox
      • It is recommended you DO NOT use a power washer on your spreader
      • Clean the drive chains with a soft cloth or brush and a solvent containing Mineral Spirits to remove dirt and grime. Re-lubricate the chains using a non-detergent petroleum-based oil with a viscosity of SAE 20 to 40. Chains should be cleaned and lubricated at least once a month. 
      • Allow to fully dry before storing
      • Check tires for proper inflation after storing spreader for long periods. Inflate to 20 psi. 
      NOTE: Regardless of the material used, spreaders should be cleaned out after every use to ensure a lifetime of service. Some materials are much more aggressive oxidizers than others.  Magnesium chloride will rust any stainless or mild steel materials in wet conditions in a matter of days.  Calcium chloride is less aggressive but will rust stainless or mild steel in a matter of weeks.  The ice melting chlorides are normally used when temperatures drop below 20 degrees Fahrenheit or in ‘pet safe’ or ‘environmentally friendly’ ice melt products. Regular rock salt or calcium will take a couple of months to cause rust.  This is why it is important to wash out after each and every use.

      IMPROPER USE OR FAILURE TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS CAN RESULT IN PRODUCT FAILURE OR INJURIES. FOR SAFE USE OF THIS PRODUCT YOU MUST READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
