Choosing the Right Snow Gritter for your Needs
When choosing a snow gritter, there are many factors to take into consideration: the nature of the area to be treated, your budget, your facilities, and the amount of use your gritter will be getting, to name but a few.
Pelican Engineering are suppliers of RASCO snow gritters, leading the way in European winter road maintenance by providing durable, innovative and reliable equipment. They’re here to help you choose the salt spreader that suits your needs.
Truck towed spreader
These snow gritters fix securely to the back of a large truck and are designed to carry up to 2,000 kilograms of spreading substrate. Spreading grit in a band 2.2 metres wide, they’re perfect snow gritters for covering large yards or local roads. They’re based on a simple design that means they’re simple to operate, and that maintenance costs and the chance of complications are low, leading to a reliable and extensive life span.
Mini towed spreader
Carrying 800kg of spreading material, these smaller capacity snow gritters are ideal for haulage yards, pedestrian areas, retail parks, car parks, and warehouses, laying down a band of substrate 800mm wide.
Solid T belt conveyor salt spreader
Designed for regional road and motorways, these snow gritters feature a rubber conveyor belt that transports the salt to the exit point, and are available in sizes from 3 to 12cu.m.
Manufactured from the most durable and superior quality components available in Europe, the Solid T has integrated advanced technology that senses for measurements like fuel consumption and road temperature, helping to regulate the flow and let the driver focus on the road.
Liquid salt spreaders
An innovative alternative to traditional snow gritters, these spreaders spray a solution of either natrium chloride or calcium chloride onto roads. More efficient in preventing snow from settling on roads, liquid salt spreaders use less salt, making them cost efficient and environmentally friendly.
