Find Salt Spreaders For Sale
In colder climates where ice and snow can be a serious inconvenience, if not an outright danger, salt spreaders can be an important tool. There are a range of salt spreaders on the market that fit a variety of different vehicle types and job sizes. Choosing carefully will ensure that you have the equipment you need to get things done quickly and efficiently.
Tailgate salt spreaders attach to a truck or plow, with an independent salt hopper that keeps the bed of the truck free. Those who need to do small to medium sized jobs might find these the best choice for their needs because of capacity. Larger jobs may require a lot of refilling to complete the salt distribution.
Towable salt spreaders can work with just about any vehicle that has a tow hitch installed, though they usually perform best with a four-wheel drive vehicle with higher towing capacity. There are models available that the spreader mechanism is electric powered and others that use the motion of the whiles to drive the spreader.
Full-bed salt spreaders can be placed into the bed of a truck or plow. These have a higher capacity to hold salt, making it easier to do large jobs. When choosing a full bed salt spreader, you’ll want to be sure that your truck is equipped to handle the weight of the salt when fully loaded and that the physical size of the spreader is compatible with your vehicle bed.
Walk-behind salt spreaders can also be a great piece of equipment to have for prepping sidewalks and smaller areas to protect them from icing over and to help minimize the buildup of snow. There are a range of sizes available, depending on needs and budget.
