PREFACE
This manual has been prepared to acquaint you with
the safety information, operation and maintenance of
your new machine. Improper installation and operation
could cause personal injury and/or equipment and
property damage. Read and understand the Owner's
Manual before installing, operating or making
adjustments. Keep this manual accessible.
Standard Control – Texas Industrial Remcor Inc
The standard version of the control has the ability to
turn the sprayers on and off and increase or decrease
the pressure of the system from the cabin.
Deluxe Control – Micro-Trak RoadMaster™
The deluxe version of the control unit has many
features that include: push-button controls, application
rate adjustment and selection, automatic and manual
control modes, visual and audio alarms, and a blast
function for spot applications.
When service is necessary, call SnowEx ® Technical
Service at 1-800-SALTERS (725-8377).
NOTE: This unit is designed to be used with
salt brine; the use of additives may impact
performance.
A separate GPS unit is offered that incorporates the
YHKLFOHVSHHGWRDXWRPDWLFDOO\DGMXVWWKHÀRZUDWH
and maintain the desired application rate. The deluxe
control is also compatible with some vehicle speed
sensors that can replace the GPS unit. Consult your
vehicle owner's manual for more information.
NOTE: Do not modify or alter the machine.
Altering the unit in any way will void the warranty.
The Liqui Maxx™ Sprayer System is designed to apply
brine to pre-treat, anti-ice, and post-treat parking lots
and roadways. Each Liqui Maxx unit consists of a
holding tank, pumping system and control, and a spray
boom.

CONTROL BOX MOUNTING
CAUTION
Do not alter, modify or install component in
shaded areas shown below. Failure to comply
may interfere with airbag deployment or
cause injury to operator in an accident.
NOTE: Use dielectric grease to prevent corrosion
on all connections.
Before beginning the installation, remove all battery
cables from the vehicle battery terminals.
1.
Route the control box harness along the vehicle
frame. Do not route it close to the exhaust system
or engine, where extreme heat could melt the
wiring insulation and short out the sprayer and
vehicle electrical systems. Attach the harness to
frame holes and frame supports. Do not attach
to fuel or brake lines. Use heavy duty cable ties
or frame clamps to fasten the harness along the
frame.

CONTROL OPERATION
Deluxe RoadMaster™ Control
Follow the steps below to get started using your
deluxe control. See the Operation section of the
RoadMaster operator's manual for complete details
and instructions.
1.
During normal operation, set the rotary switch to
RATE to see the actual application rate per acre.
The unit will automatically adjust to the target
application rate which can be seen and adjusted
using the Up (+) and Down (-) arrow buttons on the
control. Use the RUN/HOLD button and the boom
switches to control the boom as desired. The
factory defaults below can be adjusted as desired.
See the Entering Calibration Values section of the
RoadMaster operator's manual.
Factory Defaults:
• Target Application Rate: 30
• Rate Increment: +/- 5
• Units: Gallons/Acre
Before spraying, consider what speed range
you wish to operate in and select and install the
appropriate nozzles using the application rate
charts in this manual. Note that the unit will not
function as intended outside these ranges.
The Automatic Mode has a BLAST function
intended for spot application that requires a higher
application rate like bridges or intersections.
This can be changed to any value and it is not
associated with the standard application rate.
See the Entering Calibration Values section of the
RoadMaster operator's manual.
2. Turn the power switch ON. The unit will display the
software version and the total hours of operation
for 1.5 seconds each. Be sure the control is set
to HOLD or the boom switches are set to OFF
before starting the Liqui Maxx™ motor to prevent
unintentional spraying.

Application rates are to be selected and adjusted
by the user according to ground conditions and
temperatures. Initial market research suggests an
application rate of approximately 30 gallons/acre for
use in de-icing and anti-icing. Application rates in the
charts below are based on manufacturer's numbers.

Example Calculation
What is the fastest I can travel if both the wing nozzles are adjusted to cover 5 feet instead of 8, with an
application rate of 30 Gallons per Acre? (Note that the boom application rate will not change).
Using the equation to solve for speed, the variables are as follows:
Smax = Unknown
A = 30 gal/acre
B = 4 feet
G = 12 GPM (From chart*)

MAINTENANCE
• Paint or oil all bare metal surfaces as needed.
WARNING
Inspect the unit periodically for defects. Parts
that are broken, missing or worn out must be
replaced immediately. Do not alter any part of
the unit without prior written permission from
the manufacturer.
• Inspect unit for defects: broken, worn or bent parts
and similar.
• Inspect all tubing, hoses and harnesses for cracks
and leaks.

WARNING
CLEANING
Do not operate a machine in need of
maintenance.
• Clean the unit as desired. When power washing,
keep away from electronics.
NOTE: To prevent leaks, use a thread sealing
compound on all threaded connections. Do

NOZZLE MAINTENANCE
The RoadMaster reference manual can be found
online at www.micro-trak.com.
Remove nozzles by pushing in and rotating the nozzle
cap counterclockwise and clean as necessary.
PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
When reassembling nozzles, make sure that the
nozzle holes are in line with the boom. Failure to
align the nozzle holes will result in inconsistent brine
application.
• When servicing, you may need to close the shutoff valve and/or the return valve, to prevent stored
brine from exiting the holding tank.
Align holes
with boom.
• Wash unit after each use to prevent material buildup and corrosion.
• Use dielectric grease on all electrical connections
to prevent corrosion each time power or signal
plugs are disconnected.
