The VALE TS3000 Tractor Towed Salt Spreader (Gritter) from VALE Engineering has a 3.0m³ hopper capacity to take approximately 4000kg of salt.
This tractor-towed gritter is capable of spreading wet or dry salt, brown or white, via its unique POZI-FEED stainless steel auger system.
The VALE TS3000 is fitted with a robust agricultural axle and hydraulic brakes.
The spreading circuit is hydraulically powered from the tractor’s auxiliary hydraulic take off (spool valves).
Designed for highway winter maintenance when ice or snow is predicted.
