Although the longest day may have passed it is summer and seems hardly the time to be thinking about the winter and snow.
Then again it pays to start planning now for efficient snow and ice control so you're fully prepared for the depths of winter. That is the advice from SnowEx who know a thing or two about winter maintenance, especially where Health and Safety legislation makes increasing demands on facilities management. SnowEx salt and grit spreaders have grown to become the professional choice across the UK and Europe.
Designed to perform in the harshest conditions in the USA and Canada there's a complete range to suit all requirements from towed spreaders for ATV's to mounted units for UTV's, 4 x 4's, pick-ups, trucks, tractors and trailers. SnowEx offers spreaders from 47 to 4500 litre capacity with in-cab control units providing precise operation of spinners and augers to provide accuracy, while preventing overspreading and material wastage.
All SnowEx vehicle spreaders feature a 12V DC direct drive motor mounted in a weather-tight enclosure to ensure reliable power in every situation. The UV protected hoppers are constructed from high density polyethylene in safety yellow so there's zero corrosion and reduced weight. Yet they are strong, with a heavy-duty steel frame in an electrostatic powder finish, and come with a weather and fire-proof wiring harness for maximum reliability.
The drives comprise a revolutionary maximum torque transmission with a hardened steel worm and bronze gear and a steel auger feed system gives a more positive and accurate supply than a conveyor belt feed system. So what you have is a winter maintenance system with no engines, pulleys, sprockets, belts or chains. And planning now is the first step in ensuring you're ready for what the winter months throw at us. Broadwood International 01420 478111 www.broadwoodintl.co.uk
