Buyers Products, a manufacturer of work truck equipment, recently revealed a new addition to its line of MDS series combination dump spreaders.
The SaltDogg Medium Duty MDS is designed for commercial and municipal applications on Class 4-7 trucks such as the Ford F-Series, Freightliner M2 Series, International CV Series, Chevrolet Silverado Chassis Cabs and RAM Chassis Cabs, Buyers said.
The Medium-Duty MDS is the first combination body in its class to offer a fully electric drive option, the company said, enabling installation on a truck without a separate central hydraulic system, though a hydraulic drive option also is available. With optional removable pre-wet tanks, the dump spreader is built for all-season use.
“It’s a fantastic addition to our SaltDogg line-up,” said Scott Moorman, director of engineering at Buyers. “The fully electric option is truly one-of-a-kind. Now we can offer our customers a year-round solution that provides an extremely cost-effective way to turn medium-duty trucks into year-round Swiss army knives.”
The dump spreader is built from 10-gauge, 304 stainless steel with roll-formed radius sides to maximize capacity. A cross-member-free design makes it easy to clean and a low center of gravity reduces the strain on the truck.
Buyers said the SaltDogg Medium-Duty MDS will be available for the 2019-20 winter season.
