Bauman drop spreaders prevent waste and property damage with the most accurate de-icing dispensing equipment on the market.
Backed by a tradition of quality for over 40 years and with 9 models to choose from, Bauman has the right solution for you.


Model 1040B/1560B Features

  • Hydraulic Drive
  • Capacity: 10 / 15 cubic feet
  • Spreading Width: 40 / 60 inches
  • Various Mounting Brackets Available


The bucket models are specially designed to be self loading and require a mounting bracket.
The 1560B model is the only sander in the Bauman line-up with a 60" spread width.


Hydraulic Flow Control

Reduces hydraulic flow from the tractor to the distribution drum.
Allows the operator to control distribution quantity. 

 Tilting Bracket

An optional rear 3 point hitch tilting bracket is available as is an optional front mounted ALO or skid steer loader bracket.  


Utilizing 3/16 gauge steel and a durable powder coat finish, both the 1040B and 1560B models are built to last.  

Finger Bar

A unique polymer finger bar has a flexible memory in cold weather and retains its shape. The bar defines pressure and helps release an even quantity of de-icing material as seen with the cross hatch pattern when material is dropped. 

Agitator Bar

The agitator bar rotates in the hopper to help keep salt and sand from bridging or clumping. The bar ensures the material passes through to the drum and then to the ground for an even application. 


 Salt / Sand Drum

The rotating drums allow placement of various de-icing material where needed. This gives controlled delivery of materials including sand, environmentally smart de-icing products as well as road and coarse rock salt.  

 Spread Pattern

The rotating distributor drums spread de-icing material in an even and consistent cross hatch pattern. De-icing material can then "creep" and spread out which results in an efficient use of material. 

 Tension Lever Assembly

The assembly regulates the rate of flow for different types of material (i.e.: fine sand vs coarse salt). The lever allows for fine tuning of the rate of flow of material. 

 Sealed Bearings

Sealed bearings protect against environmental wear. They are also easily maintained and re-greasable.
