The Ventrac Sidewalk Drop Spreader is the ultimate tool for spreading an array of deicing materials with precision flow control. Designed with a narrow frame and a 40” drop pattern, this spreader is ideal for spreading material on sidewalks and other narrow walkways.

Material is evenly distributed using a unique compression roller system. An easy gate adjustment allows for fine tuning flow rates based on the type of material being spread and the desired quantity being applied. The wireless remote control regulates five motor speeds for quick flow adjustments from the operator seat.

The stainless steel hopper prevents premature failure due to rust and corrosion. The innovative agitation system prevents material bridging and eliminates the need for a traditional, noisy vibration motor.

Universal mounting options are available for a 2” receiver hitch or a category one three-point hitch.

Park spreader in a controlled location with no bystanders present.


Prepare a large bin or tarp to collect material that will be dispensed from spreader.


With a stopwatch in hand, simultaneously turn on spreader and start the timer.

Collect material for a set amount of time (recommend 2-5 minutes).


Weigh material that was dispensed from spreader.


Input data below.


If adjustment is needed, refer to owners manual and adjust application rate to desired settings. Repeat steps as needed.


If machine engine is not running – system voltage and spreader drop rate may be reduced. If testing in an area that the machine engine cannot – system voltage may be maintained with the use of a battery charger.


Application Rates

Use of excessive amounts of ice melt products increases the cost of treatment and could harm vegetation due to run off of materials. For these reasons, it is best to use the minimum amount of material necessary to achieve the desired results.


This calculator is intended to help snow professsionals estimate the amount of deicing material that may be applied at various settings. Application rate will vary based on operating conditions, speed, and material. It is the sole responsibility of the snow professional to determine the necessary usage of deicing material
