SAFETY DECAL MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Keep safety decals and signs clean and legible at all times.
2. Replace safety decals and signs that are missing or have become illegible.
3. Replaced parts that displayed a safety sign should also display the current sign.
4. Safety decals or signs are available from your dealer’s Parts Department or our Cedar Rapids factory.
SAFETY DECAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Clean Surface
Wash the installation surface with a synthetic, free-rinsing detergent. Avoid washing the surface with a soap
containing creams or lotion. Allow to dry.
3. Remove the Liner
A small bend at the corner or edge will cause the liner to separate from the decal. Pull the liner away in a
continuous motion at a 180-degree angle. If the liner is scored, bend at score and remove.
4. Apply Safety Decal
a. Tack decal in place with thumb pressure in upper corners.
b. Using firm initial squeegee pressure, begin at the center of the decal and work outward in all directions
with overlapping strokes. NOTE: Keep squeegee blade even—nicked edges will leave application bubbles.
c. Pull up tack points before squeegeeing over them to avoid wrinkles.
5. Remove Pre-mask
If safety decal has a pre-mask cover remove it at this time by pulling it away from the decal at a 180 degree
angle. NOTE: It is important that the pre-mask covering is removed before the decal is exposed to sunlight to
avoid the pre-mask from permanently adhering to the decal.
6. Remove Air Pockets
Inspect the decal in the flat areas for bubbles. To eliminate the bubbles, puncture the decal at one end
of the bubble with a pin (never a razor blade) and press out entrapped air with thumb moving toward the
puncture.

MAINTENANCE
1. Maintenance includes all
lubrication,
inspection,
adjustments
(other
than operational control
adjustments
such
as
feedgate
openings,
conveyor
speed,
etc.)
part replacement, repairs
and such upkeep tasks as
cleaning and painting.
2. When performing any
maintenance work, wear proper protective
equipment—always wear eye protection—safety
shoes can help save your toes—gloves will help
protect your hands against cuts, bruises, abrasions
and from minor burns—a hard hat is better than a
sore head!
3. Use proper tools for the job
required. Use of improper
tools (such as a screwdriver
instead of a pry bar, a
pair of pliers instead of a
wrench, a wrench instead
of a hammer) not only can
damage the equipment being worked on, but can
lead to serious injuries. USE THE PROPER TOOLS.
4. Before attempting any maintenance work
(including lubrication), shut off power completely.
DO NOT WORK ON RUNNING MACHINERY!
5. When guards and covers are removed for any
maintenance, be sure that such guards are
reinstalled before unit is put back into operation.
6. Check all screws, bolts and nuts for proper torques
before placing equipment back in service. Refer to
torque chart in this manual.

7. Some parts and
assemblies
are
quite heavy. Before
attempting
to
unfasten any heavy
part or assembly,
arrange to support it
by means of a hoist,
by blocking or by
use of an adequate
arrangement to prevent it from falling, tipping,
swinging or moving in any manner which may
damage it or injure someone. Always use lifting
device that is properly rated to lift the equipment.
Do not lift loaded spreader. NEVER LIFT EQUIPMENT
OVER PEOPLE.
8. If repairs require use
of a torch or electric
welder, be sure that
all flammable and
combustible materials
are removed. Fuel
or oil reservoirs must
be emptied, steam
cleaned and filled
with water before
attempting to cut or weld them. DO NOT weld or
flame cut on any tank containing oil, gasoline or
their fumes or other flammable material, or any
container whose contents or previous contents are
unknown.
9. Keep a fully charged fire extinguisher readily
available at all times. It should be a Type ABC or a
Type BC unit.
10. Cleaning solvents should be used with care.
Petroleum based solvents are flammable and
present a fire hazard. Don’t use gasoline. All
solvents must be used with adequate ventilation,
as their vapors should not be inhaled.

11. When batteries are
being
charged
or
discharged,
they
generate
hydrogen
and oxygen gases. This
combination of gases
is highly explosive. DO
NOT SMOKE around
batteries—STAY AWAY
FROM FLAME—don’t
check batteries by shorting terminals as the spark
could cause an explosion. Connect and disconnect
battery charger leads only when charger is “off”.
Be very careful with “jumper” cables.
12. Batteries contain strong sulfuric acid—handle
with care. If acid gets on you, flush it off with
large amounts of water. If it gets in your eyes,
flush it out with plenty of water immediately and
get medical help.
13. Hydraulic fluid under
high pressure leaking
from a pin hole are
dangerous as they can
penetrate the skin as
though injected with
a hypodermic needle.
Such liquids have a
poisonous effect and
can
cause
serious
wounds. To avoid hazard, relieve pressure before
disconnecting hydraulic lines or performing work
on system. Any fluid injected into the skin must
be treated within a few hours as gangrene may
result. Get medical assistance immediately if
such a wound occurs. To check for such leaks,
use a piece of cardboard or wood instead of your
hand. Make sure all hydraulic fluid connections
are tight and all hydraulic hoses and lines are
in good condition before applying pressure to
system. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses
or goggles when working with hydraulic systems.
14. The fine spray from a small hydraulic oil leak can
be highly explosive—DO NOT SMOKE—STAY
AWAY FROM FLAME OR SPARKS.

as such
welding
can lead
to fatigue
c ra c k i n g
and must be avoided. When drilling holes in
frame member, drill only through the vertical
web portions do not put holes in top or
bottom flanges. Refer to truck manufacturer’s
recommendations.
7. Be sure that welds between mounting bars and
sill or between mounting angles and spreader
cross sills are sound, full fillet welds. Center
mounting angles so that good fillet welds can
be made on three sides—an edge bead weld is
not a satisfactory weld for this service. Use 309
rod/wire for carbon steel and 409 steel. On 304
stainless steel bodies use SAE grade 8 bolts—
welding is recommended if type 308 welding rod
is available.
SAFETY
1. The selection of the vehicle on which a spreader
body is to be mounted has important safety
aspects. To avoid overloading:
a. Do not mount spreader on a chassis which,
when fully loaded with material to be
spread, will exceed either the Gross Axle
Weight Rating (GAWR) or the Gross Vehicle
Weight Rating (GVWR) for the chassis.
b. Do install the spreader only on a vehicle
with cab-to-axle dimension recommended
for the spreader body length shown.
2. Follow mounting instructions in the Installation
section of this manual. If mounting conditions
require deviation from these instructions refer to
factory.
3. When making the installation, be sure that the
lighting meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, ASABE S279 and all
applicable local and state regulations.
4. When selecting a PTO to drive hydraulic pump, do
not use a higher percent speed drive than indicated
in the Installation section of this manual. Too high
a percent PTO will drive pump at excessive speed,
which can ruin the pump, but more importantly,
will overheat the hydraulic oil system and increase
the possibility of fire.
8. Install controls so that they are located of
convenient use. Position them so that they do not
interfere with any vehicle control and that they
do not interfere with driver or passenger or with
access to or exit from the vehicle.
9. Check for vehicle visibility, especially toward the
rear. Reposition or add mirrors so that adequate
rearward visibility is maintained.
10. Add Caution, Warning, Danger and Instruction
decals as required. Peel off any label masking
which has not been removed.
5.
W h e n
truck frame must
be shortened, cut
off only the portion
that extends behind
rear
shackle
in
accordance with the
truck manufacturer’s
recommendations. If
a torch is used to make
the cut, all necessary precautions should be taken
to prevent fire. Cuts should not be made near
fuel tanks and hydraulic oil reservoirs, fuel, brake,
electric or hydraulic lines and such lines should
be protected from flame, sparks or molten metal.
Tires should be removed if there is any chance
of their being struck by flame, sparks or molten
metal. Have a fire extinguisher handy.

TRUCK REQUIREMENTS
Before mounting the spreader on a truck, the following major questions must be considered:
1. Is the CA (Cab to Axle) dimension of the truck correct for the length of the spreader?
2. Is the truck’s GAWR (Gross Axle Weight Rating) and the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) adequate to carry
the fully loaded spreader?
Refer to your Hi Way dealer to find the GAWR and GVWR for most trucks, and how to calculate the weight
distribution on each axle and total loaded vehicle weight.
Truck Frame Length
Refer to “Dimensions & Capacities” section in the operator’s manual for approximate length from the rear of the
cab to the rear end of the frame. Shorten truck frame as necessary, making sure to follow truck manufacturer’s
specifications so as not to void truck warranty.

LIFTING THE SPREADER
Use only lifting devices that meet or exceed OSHA standard 1910.84 or ASME B30.20-2006.
Never lift equipment over people. Never lift unit with anything or anybody in the body.
WARNING
Loads may shift or fall if improperly supported, causing damage to unit, injury or even
death.
CAUTION
Do not use lifting device to free unit from a chassis, storage stands or frozen ground, or to
lift the chassis in any way. Shock loading is prohibited and sudden accelerations should be
avoided. Lifting in such a manner could result in damage to unit or injury.
Always inspect unit lift points for signs of wear, cracking, corrosion, gouges, alterations, or distortion.
I N S TA L L AT I O N
Always use a sling, spreader bar, or lifting bar that
attaches to the lifting points with a minimum of 60
degrees from horizontal. It is preferable to use an “H”
style lifting bar that keeps the attaching chains in a near
vertical orientation as shown in Figure 1. Operators of
lifting devices must be qualified and knowledgeable in
their use and application.
Position the truck with adequate room around the
unit. Work in an environment that permits clear
communication to others nearby. Keep area clear of
persons when loads are to be lifted and suspended. Do
not allow the lifted load to come in contact with any
obstruction.
Store units on a solid surface using appropriate storage
stands when not installed.

NOTICE!
DO NOT WELD ON VEHICLE FRAME! Such welding can lead to fatigue cracking and must be avoided.
NOTICE!
Connect welders ground directly to one of the items being welded anytime an arc welder is used on
the vehicle or anything connected to the vehicle. Refer to Manufacturer’s instructions.
IMPORTANT!
Disconnect electrical components from electrical system when welding on equipment to
prevent component damage due to power surges or excessive current.
1. Lower the pickup or dump body tailgate. Remove the tailgate if it cannot be lowered into a horizontal position.
2. Carefully lift the spreader and set it in the truck box.
3. Center the spreader from side to side, and position it as far forward as possible, providing adequate clearance
to mount spinner hopper.
4. Once spreader is positioned from front to rear, place wood blocks between the front of the spreader and the
truck body to prevent spreader from sliding forward.
5. Using the four ratchet straps or chains and load binders supplied in the mounting kit, secure spreader to truck
body at all four corners. Most truck bodies are built with standard anchor points for securing such loads. If truck
body does not have sufficient mounting points, modify as necessary.

DESCRIPTION
SUPER P
The Super P and Super P-HC are hopper-type spreaders and in many respects smaller versions of the Hi-Way Model
E2020XT. They are intended for spreading abrasives and de-icing products for the control of snow or ice. The units
can be mounted into a pick-up truck.
The Super P and Super P-HC are both offered with two different drive options, standard gas engine drive or optional
hydraulic drive. Both spreaders are offered with two conveyor options, standard #1 bar chain conveyor, or optional
Belt-Over-Chain (BOC) conveyor.
Options:
• The engine options are a 10.5 HP Briggs & Stratton (Super P ONLY) or 11 HP Honda (Super P or Super P-HC) fourcycle gasoline engine mounted at the rear. The engine drives a 20:1 worm gear case. The spinner is driven from
the input shaft of the worm gear and the conveyor is driven from the output shaft. Variable speed control is
obtained by the use of an electric throttle.
• The hydraulic options are single motor, dual motor or direct drive. The spinner is driven from the input shaft
of a 20:1 worm gear case or directly driven by a hydraulic motor. The conveyor is driven from the output shaft
of the worm gear or a hydraulic motor. Spinner and conveyor speed are adjusted by means of control valves.
The Super P with standard gas engine drive and #1 bar chain conveyor is designed to spread straight sand or a salt/
sand mixture only. When applying straight salt, a BOC conveyor is required.
The conveyor runs the full length of the hopper bottom to deliver material through an adjustable feedgate to the
spinner.
The spinner hopper has two internal baffles and three external baffles for adjusting the spread to the desired
pattern.
This product is intended for commercial use only.

GENERAL OPERATING
HEADER PROCEDURES
SUPER P
To avoid spreader coming loose from truck: Be sure all fasteners are torqued to proper spec
before operating unit. Periodically check ratchet straps to ensure they are tight and secure.
CAUTION Be careful where you spread materials. Avoid operating near or around personnel.
Before taking the unit out to use, make a walk-around inspection to assure that the spreader is not damaged, that
all essential parts are in place, and that all fasteners are tight and all guards are in place. Check all controls to be
sure they are operating correctly.
GENERAL RULES
When spreading straight salt, a minimum 2” (5cm) feedgate opening must be maintained.
Always use the highest feedgate setting and slowest conveyor speed to achieve desired application rate. Following
this simple rule will reduce tension and duty cycles on the conveyor and conveyor drive components, resulting in
maximum service life.
SPREAD PATTERN ADJUSTMENTS
Fill the body with material and start the engine. Before spreading, some preliminary adjustments are necessary to
give an even spread pattern.
The spread pattern is adjusted by using the internal and external baffles. The spread pattern is dependant on the
positions of the baffles.
For setting the desired spread pattern, consider the following:
• Direction of pattern - Right, left or centered.
• Pattern width.
• Nearby pedestrians, vehicles or other property in in the direct path of material spread.
For a centered spread pattern that provides sufficient coverage at intersections, while still limited to prevent injury
to pedestrians or property damage, use of all spinner hopper baffles is required.

LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
SUPER P
PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE PAYS!
The handling and spreading of salt and sand is a highly severe operation with respect to metal corrosion. Establish
a frequent, periodic preventative maintenance program to prevent rapid deterioration to equipment. Proper
cleaning, lubrication and maintenance will yield longer life, more satisfactory service and more economical use of
your equipment.
WARNING
Shut off all power and allow all moving parts to come to rest before performing any maintenance operation.
WARNING
Shut off all power and allow all moving parts to come to rest before performing any
maintenance operation. Otherwise, you could be injured.
DRIVE CHAINS
Make sure truck engine is shut down when working on drive chain. If drive chain moves,
you could be injured.
Twice a year remove drive chains. Soak chain in a solvent to remove all old or contaminated oil. Check chain for any
frozen links. Soak chain in SAE 10 oil. Soak chain until, when flexed, no bubbles appear on chain. Reinstall chains.
Chain should be tensioned enough to prevent whipping at operating speed. Over-tensioning of chain will create
excessive heat that will freeze chain or cause damage to other parts of drive system.
ENGINE
Refer to engine maintenance instructions furnished by engine manufacturer.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
The use of proper oil in the hydraulic system is one of the most important factors for satisfactory operation. Utmost
cleanliness in handling the oil cannot be stressed enough. Keep the hydraulic oil in original closed containers, clean
top of container before opening and pouring, and handle in extremely clean measures and funnels.
Refer to the Lubricant and Hydraulic Oil Specifications section of the manual for selection of the proper hydraulic
fluid for use in the hydraulic system.
DANGER
Do not check leaks with hands while system is operating as high pressure leaks can be
dangerous! If skin is pierced with hydraulic fluid at high pressure seek immediate medical
attention as fluid injected into the skin could cause gangrene if left untreated. Relieve
pressure before disconnecting hydraulic lines or working with system. Make sure all
hydraulic fluid connections are tight and all hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition
before applying pressure to the system. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or
goggles when working with hydraulic systems.

Inspect
Examine hose assembly internally for cut or bulged tube, obstructions, and
cleanliness. For segment style fittings, be sure that the hose butts up against the
nipple shoulder; band and retaining ring are properly set and tight, and segments
are properly spaced. Check for proper gap between nut and socket or hex and
socket. Nuts should swivel freely. Check the layline of the hose to be sure the
assembly is not twisted. Cap the ends of the hose with plastic covers to keep clean.
Test
The hose assembly should be hydrostatically tested at twice the recommended
working pressure of the hose.
Test pressure should be held for not more than one minute and not less than 30
seconds. When test pressure is reached, visually inspect hose assembly for: 1. Any
leaks or signs of weakness. 2. Any movement of the hose fitting in relation to the
hose. Any of these defects are cause for rejection.
Storage and Handling
Hose should be stored in a dark, dry atmosphere away from electrical equipment, and the temperature should not
exceed 90° F (32.22° C).

CONVEYOR GEARCASE
Drain oil in a new unit after first two weeks (or not more than 100 hours) of operation, and flush gear case thoroughly
with light oil. Refer to “Lubricant and Hydraulic Oil Specifications” section for proper grade oil and recommended
amounts of lubricant. After initial change, oil should be changed every 2,000 hours of operation or annually,
whichever occurs first.
Check gearcase oil level monthly.
LUBRICATION OF BEARINGS
Grease in a bearing acts to prevent excessive wear of parts, protects ball races and balls from corrosion and aids in
preventing excessive heat within the bearing. It is very important the grease maintains its proper consistency during
operation. It must not be fluid and it must not channel.
Make sure all fittings are thoroughly cleaned before grease is injected. Points to be lubricated by means of a grease
gun have standard grease fittings.
FASTENERS
Tighten all screw fasteners to recommended torques after first week of operation and annually thereafter. If loose
fasteners are found at anytime, tighten to recommended torque. Replace any lost or damaged fasteners or other
parts immediately. Check body mounting hardware every week.
CLEAN-UP
NOTICE!
High pressure wash can inject water and/or salt into bearing seals and control components, causing
damage. Use caution when cleaning these areas.
Thoroughly wash unit every two to three days during the operating season to maintain minimal maintenance
operation. Hose unit down under pressure to free all sticky and frozen material.
It is important the unit be thoroughly cleaned at the end of each operating season. All lubrication and maintenance
instructions should be closely followed. Repaint worn spots to prevent formation of rust.

Lubricate bearings by pumping grease slowly until it forms a slight bead around the seals. This bead indicates
adequate lubrication and also provides additional protection against the entrance of dirt.

CONVEYOR CHAIN
Hose down unit and remove any material build-up on sprockets and under chain.
NOTICE!
The conveyor will move away from the bottom panel if material accumulates under the conveyor or
on the sprockets. The more material that accumulates, the closer the chain will come to the chain
shields. If the conveyor should catch a chain shield, it could permanently damage the conveyor, the
chain shields or the unit. Do not remove material while conveyor or spinner is running!
Lubricate conveyor chain at least once a week. Shut down spinner and run conveyor slowly to lubricate chain. Use
a mixture of 75% diesel fuel and 25% SAE 10 oil in a pressurized hand spray gun. Spray oil mixture between links of
chain through openings provided at rear end of sill or from front outside body when clearance is adequate. Do this
at least once a week and after each unit washing. Allow to dry before lubricating.
L U B R I C AT I O N & M A I N T E N A N C E
DANGER
Stay out of body when conveyor is running. Stay clear of all moving parts. Entanglement of
clothes, any part of your body or anything you have in your hands can cause serious injury.
Do not use bar, rod or hammer on conveyor while it is moving—if it gets caught it could
cause injury!
Proper chain tension is also a factor in chain
and sprocket life. The proper chain tension
is illustrated in Figure 4. Be sure the chain
is tensioned equally on both sides. This
adjustment is made on each side of the unit at
the idler bearings.
Figure 4 - Chain Tension to be Measured from
Rear of Sill - Proper Tension 26” to 30” (66 to 76
cm).
Figure 4 - Adjusting Chain Tension
Conveyor chains that are too tight will tend to stretch. This will cause excess sprocket wear and eventually cause
breakage. Excess slack presents the possibility of the chain catching on sub-frame parts. Bent or distorted chain
bars will cause damage to the body as well. Straighten or replace bent or distorted chain bars immediately.

CONVEYOR REPLACEMENT
Check drive and idler sprockets for wear and replace if necessary.
Removal
Remove spinner hopper from vehicle. Take spreader out of truck. Rotate conveyor so that connecting link pins,
attached with cotter pins, can be accessed at rear of spreader. Loosen idler screws on both sides. If BOC, cut one
end of lacing pin and remove spice pin. Remove cotter pins and connecting link pins at rear of unit. Take chain off
rear sprockets and pull chain from front of unit.
Installation
BARREL END
Tension the chain by tightening the idler screws. Reinstall spinner assembly and
install the spreader into the truck. Be sure to lubricate the idler bearings and
chain before operation.
Make sure the drive sprocket drives against the barrel end of the links—Not
against the connecting pins.
Open ends of chain links point towards rear of unit on top of bottom panel.
Likewise, open ends point towards front of unit underneath bottom panel.

1. Remove connecting link pins from the new chain.Lay the new chain at the front of the unit with the chain bars
up/HI-WAY stamps down and the barrel end of the connecting link pointing towards the unit (See Figure 5).
NOTE: Installation is easier if the new conveyor can be elevated so it is level with the spreader bottom.
2. Insert the conveyor between the bottom panel and the cross angles with the barrel end first. Pull conveyor to
rear of unit.
3. Slide the remaining half of conveyor on top of the bottom panel with the open end of the master link first (See
Figure 5).
4. Push the chain along the bottom panel until the connecting link reaches the rear of the unit so the ends meet
at rear.
5. Make sure the chain is positioned on all the sprockets. Install the connector link pins previously removed.
NOTE: you may have to rotate the sprockets by hand to align the link’s pin holes.
