Henderson "Chief" spreader being inspected for Kosovo's winter season. Note the 12-inch
extension at the top of two of the spreaders. This addition allows the 6-ft spreader's
hopper capacity to increase from 1.3 yd3 to 2.3 yd3. On the 10-ft spreader, a 12-inch
extension increases hopper capacity from 2.1 yd3 to 3.8 yd3. These capacities are
measured at the struck (that is, level with the top of the sides of the hopper). Heaping
above the grate is not recommended.
