In a nutshell…
J-Craft offers you the Sidewinder—an All Season
  body that provides standard dump body use as
  well as versatile winter snow and ice control.
The Sidewinder is used in winter conditions
  throughout the US including the State of
  Connecticut DOT across the country to the City
  of Colville, Washington.
The Sidewinder provides solutions that cannot be
  solved with standard dump body and spreaders.
       Versatility during Winter

                       SALT          HAUL

          Height Advantage
Do you drive through
 areas with…
 …power lines?
 …tree branches?

Do your drivers
 remember to lower
 the body in these
 cases…every time??
Do you…
 …struggle to safely
 plow up and down
 hills or steep grades?
 …need to have
 salt/sand delivered
 in front of your tires
 for increased
          Year-Round Use
The Sidewinder offers the full benefits of a
 standard style dump body. You can
 choose to:
 Remove the conveyor for simple summer
 maintenance, or,
 Keep the conveyor intact and covered with
 a drop-down panel…minimizing storage of
 spreader equipment.

The Sidewinder uses cylinders on the
  passenger side that lift 2/3 of the floor and
  side moving the material to the conveyor.

A conveyor, on the drivers side, moves material
  toward the front. Material flows onto a spinner
  spreading sand and salt up to 25 feet with
  continuous feed from the body.

sourced hydraulic motor that is
