The VALE TS6000 Tractor Towed Salt Spreader is VALE Engineering’s largest tractor-towed salt spreader with a 6.0m³ hopper capacity to take approximately 9000kg of salt – the same capacity as a traditional 18T HGV Gritter.
VALE Engineering has calculated that it could also massively reduce winter maintenance costs for local authorities from Day 1, with a 79% saving on capital investment and a 54% saving on capital and operational costs combined.*
Like other VALE Engineering tractor-towed salt spreaders, the VALE TS6000 Tractor Towed Salt Spreader is capable of spreading wet or dry, brown or white salt, via its unique POZI-FEED stainless steel auger system.
Fitted with a high-speed agricultural axle and high speed wheels and tyres. Braking by S-cam brakes hydraulically or by optional air brakes. The spreading circuit is hydraulically powered from the tractor’s auxiliary hydraulic take off (spool valves).
With much lower capital expense and maintenance costs, this tractor-towed salt spreader provides a cost-effective alternative to front-line 18T HGV gritting vehicles used by local authorities and independent contractors including farmers responsible for the winter maintenance of highways and roads.
