FORGE HOPPER SPREADER
FIGHT ICE WITH STEEL

AVAILABLE MODELS:

  • Forge® 1.0, 1.5, 2.0
The BOSS FORGE lineup is expanding across all fronts. BOSS now brings the power of stainless steel ice control to even more vehicles with the addition of the FORGE 1.0 and 1.5 to the FORGE family. The FORGE stainless steel hopper is constructed with a combination of bolting, riveting and welding for optimal durability and serviceability throughout the spreader’s lifetime-allowing you to maintain and replace individual parts rather than the entire unit. Both the hopper and the drive train are constructed with stainless steel, enhancing the sturdiness and durability of FORGE in adverse winter conditions. It’s another example of tough, reliable innovations from BOSS that are built to BACK YOU UP.

STANDARD FEATURES

Pintle Chain or Auger Feed System features either a heavy-duty pintle chain or mild steel helical auger for long life and reliability.
Stainless Steel Hopper is built to outlast the elements and is available in 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 cubic yard capacity.
Dual Variable Speed Controller is equipped with auto-reverse and overload protection and is backlit for clear visibility and ease of use (auger only).
14.5” Diameter Urethane Spinner is durable, corrosion-resistant and ensures consistent distribution.
Enclosed Spinner Motor is weather- and dust-sealed to ensure performance, durability and reliability.
Vibrator prevents material bridging for ease of operation (standard for auger; optional for pintle)
Inverted V-Baffle reduces material build-up for optimal spreading efficiency (standard for auger; available as an accessory for pintle).
Chain Cleaning Brush removes excess material from chain on every pass (pintle chain only).
Full-Length Slide-Out Tray captures falling deicing material, keeping it away from truck bed, preventing corrosion (pintle chain only).
