Melt ice and snow away on driveways, plazas, and small parking lots with this SaltDogg hitch-mounted, electric salt spreader. Landscapers and property owners will love this spreader that has a 4.4-cu ft capacity and casts rock salt 12' to 24'. If you run a big operation, you can use this spreader for light residential jobs, freeing up your larger trucks for more substantial work. You won't need to refuel or service a gas engine because the operation is electric. The quiet motor also won't wake up residents while you're de-icing late at night or early in the morning.

How to Use the SaltDogg

Tailgate salt spreader installs on 2 inch receiver

First, assemble the salt spreader and slide it into your trailer hitch receiver.

Tailgate spreader with salt

Then pour #1 free-flowing rock salt into the hopper. This type of sodium chloride should be used because the granules are smaller and more consistently sized than other types of road salt. As a result, it is less likely to block the chute, which helps to ensure a smooth flow. To protect the contents inside the hopper, put on the lid and secure it in place using the cover latches.

Tailgate hopper and manual feed gate

Open the manual feed gate - located between the chute and spinner - to start the flow of salt. The slanted walls in the hopper channel the material down the chute, using gravity to feed the spinner.

Tailgate salt spreader on/off switch

Activate the spinner with the on/off toggle switch, which plugs into the 12V accessory outlet in your cab.

Tailgate salt spreader spinner

Once the granulated agent passes the feed gate, it's sent onto the rotating spinner where it gets dispersed. You can easily adjust the direction of the spread pattern to go to either side or directly behind your vehicle by positioning the deflector shield. Just loosen the hardware on the hitch mount, slide the shield to the desired position, and retighten the hardware to hold the shield in place. This gives you the flexibility to cast your material where you want it, so you can get the job done as efficiently as possible.

High-Performance Electric Spinner

Tailgate spreader gear motor

This salt spreader uses a 12-volt, 1/8-horsepower motor to power the spinner. This independent, electric motor runs quieter than a gas motor, and it also requires less maintenance. The 9" spinner is able to spread rock salt in a 12' to 24' radius. To withstand the corrosive effects of the salt, the spinner is made from a durable polyurethane.

Tilt-Away Feature for Rear Hatch Access

Tilt-away function for SaltDogg

If you need to access the back of your Jeep, SUV, or truck bed, just remove the pin that holds the frame of the spreader upright. Then slowly lower the hopper to the ground, tilting it away from your vehicle. Rest the hopper on the ground and you'll be able to open your rear hatch or tailgate.

Heavy-Duty Poly Hopper

The patented double-wall hopper on this spreader has a 4.4-cu ft capacity. It's also constructed of durable polyethylene and has a powder coated carbon steel frame, both of which make it resistant to corrosion and impacts.

Simple Installation

This SaltDogg spreader will work with most Jeeps, SUVs, and 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton, and 1-ton pickup trucks. It comes with 2 separate shanks that will fit a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver or a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. Just choose the one that fits your application.

Tailgate spreader install

The 3 mounting holes on these shanks let you adjust the distance between your bumper and the spreader for clearance. The farthest hole is for vehicles with a large bumper or a spare tire on the back.

On the motor-and-frame assembly, there are 5 mounting holes for adjusting the height of the spinner from the ground. To cast the ideal concentration of salt onto the road, you'll want to mount the spinner about 18" off the ground. Once you have determined which mounting holes you're using, install the motor-and-frame assembly on the receiver mount. Then install the spinner shield and mount the hopper to the assembly.

Tailgate spreader install

Easily plug the power cable into your vehicle's 12V auxiliary port for power. Then route it back to the spreader and plug it into the 12V motor. There's no drilling or complicated wiring required.

Simple Maintenance

You'll want to keep the salt spreader lubricated throughout the long winter season. To do this, spray lubricant around the motor shaft. This will help prevent water from penetrating the motor. Apply dielectric grease to all electrical connections between uses and before long-term storage as well.

When the SaltDogg is not in use, be sure to empty any unused material because salt can freeze or solidify and cause the spreader to jam. At the end of a job, wash out the entire spreader and rinse off the external surfaces to help protect it from any type of corrosion.
