Product Spotlight: PHIL Material Spreader - Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc.
Our Beloved Pat Hagenbuch 1942 - 2021

A new product was added to the PHIL equipment line in 2016 in the form of the PHIL Material Spreader Attachment for PHIL Rear Eject Bodies. A collabrative design effort from the Sale & Marketing team, Engineering department, and our Production department, the three-part system is a safe and easy way to add traction to treacherous roads. Designed to fit the 2016 models of PHIL's patented line of Rear Eject Bodies, the Spreader Attachment includes a Grizzly screen along with the sanding attachment.

The Spreader Attachement was designed primarily for the mining industry, but it will benefit other applications as well, like aggregates, construction, landfills, and quarries. The PHIL system of spreading virtually eliminates the risk of damaging the equipment and helps save on maintenace costs. The operator has complete control over material discharge, an schievment that cannot be made with the traditional gravity-fed solutions.

All PHIL equipment is constructed to withstand the test of time, and the Spreader Attachment is no different. It is made from Hardox 450 steel and designed for maximum productivity. The attachment's auger and spinners are built out of heavy duty steel designed specifically for the mining industry, and the PHIL Rear Eject Body is built out of high-strength, abrasive-resistant steel to last for years with little more than typciaal preventative maintnenance.

"We are always looking for ways to make our customers' lives safer, more producticve, and more efficient," said Josh Swank, vice-president of sales at PHIL. "This is the first in a series of attachments that will help us achieve our goal of making mines more productive, profitable, and safe. Safety is everything."
