The VALE TS1700 Tractor Towed Salt Spreader (Gritter) from VALE Engineering is a tractor-towed salt spreader (gritter) with a 1.7 m³ hopper capacity to take approximately 2000kg of salt.
This gritter can spread wet or dry, brown or white salt, via its unique POZI-FEED stainless steel auger system. This salt spreader is fitted with twin high-speed braked axles and road going wheels and tyres. The VALE TS1700 Tractor Towed Salt Spreader is hydraulically powered, either from a PTO powered pump or from the tractor’s auxiliary hydraulic take off (spool valves).
Ideal for use as part of a planned winter maintenance programme to control ice and snow.
