Its clearing width is the same as i.e. dozer blade or snow sweeper, so snow is cleared first, and then the salt or sand is spread. The clearing width of the salt and sand spreader can be increased, up to five metres if needed, which is highly effective when gritting parking areas or fighting freezing rain.
The salt and sand spreader is funnel-shaped so that salt, sand or gravel is pressed down by its own weight. Even wet material flows freely. A stirrer prevents clotting and a vibrating plate in the bottom drives the material down onto the spreader plate for the correct spreading width.
The stirrer and the dosing can be adjusted individually, so that you never use more material than needed - to the benefit of both the environment and the operating costs. The amount of material as well as the speading width are manually set by the operator.
The attachment is constructed in stainless steel material. The extra width as well an extra sealing between machine and attachment protect machine and engine against salt and sand.
Due to a large volume and a low load height, the salt and sand spreader is easy and quite accommodating to work with. It runs far on one filling, and the start/stop function ensures spreading only when the machine is moving.
