THE BOSS Introduces New TGS 800 Tailgate Sand Spreader

IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich.  (April 2009) – Winter has met its match with the introduction of the new TGS 800 Tailgate Sand Spreader from THE BOSS Snowplow.  Capable of spreading both sand and rock salt or other dry free-flowing, ice-melting materials, the TGS 800 Tailgate Sand Spreader gives THE BOSS a complete lineup of tailgate spreaders perfect for any job.

The TGS 800 Tailgate Sand Spreader features an 800-pound (8-cubic-foot) capacity and is engineered to handle sand as well as most types of deicing materials.  And the new TGS 800 is easy to attach and comes with more standard features than any other spreader on the market.

 “Our new TGS 800 Tailgate Sand Spreader provides operators with the versatility to adapt to any snow or ice situation while delivering the proven, time-saving features that have set the standard for ease-of-use and reliability in our industry,” said Rick Robitaille, THE BOSS Snowplow Marketing Manager.

Standard Features:

  • Low-Profile Poly Hopper
  • Solid Poly Hopper Cover
  • Variable Speed Control With Blast Feature & Overload Protection
  • (2) Enclosed 12-Volt DC Electric High-Torque Motors
  • Adjustable Poly Material Deflector
  • Top Screen With Bag Splitter
  • 12″ Poly Spinner
  • Swing-Away Spinner Assembly

The TGS 800 Sand Spreader features a unique Feed Paddle Mechanism powered by its own 12-volt DC high-torque motor, while the spinner is powered by a separate 12-volt DC high-torque electric motor.

Choose from either our RT3 Quick Hitch Attachment System, which easily rolls the spreader into place, or a Slide-in Mount.  Both systems use the existing vehicle Class 4 trailer hitch receiver mount.
