VALE Engineering’s popular Drop Gritter/Snowplough ATV Quad Bike Combi comes with 1.2m snow plough and VALE TS80 Trailed Drop Gritter for snow and ice control as part of planned winter maintenance. This ATV quad bike is supplied complete with 1.2m snow plough and trailed drop gritter.
Mounted on the Yamaha 350 ATV, this Drop Gritter/Snowplough ATV Quad Bike Combi is ideal for winter maintenance use in locations such as foot paths, car parks, education and retail sites where larger tractor-towed units can be simply too large and cumbersome to operate.
The ATV quad bike comes with VALE Engineering’s Towed Drop Gritter VALE TS80. This gritter provides an easy solution for winter maintenance where a basic, yet reliable, method of drop spreading salt or grit onto pedestrian paths, footways and car parks is required.
The VALE TS80 Towed Drop Gritter has a 0.285m³ hopper capacity to take approximately 400kg of salt. It can spread wet or dry, brown or white salt via a rotating roller and cams in the bottom of the hopper. The spreading system is powered via a basic ground driven system which makes this drop gritter simple to use and basic to maintain.
The ATV quad bike also comes with a robust snow plough attachment featuring: a 1.2m wide blade with curved top deflector; spring return break back to minimise damage; and the ability to manually angle to three positions – bulldoze, snow to the left and snow to the right.
The Drop Gritter/Snowplough ATV Quad Bike Combi is also available to hire as part of VALE Engineering’s winter maintenance hire fleet.
