When the worst of the winter weather arrives you want a simple and effective way of spreading salt on snow and ice. It's worth considering Wessex Country spreaders, either mounted or towed.
The mounted versions are highly rated among groundcare contractors and local authorities for their ease of use and spreading efficiency.
An excellent addition to any fleet of groundcare equipment they are built to provide an economical yet extremely effective means of spreading salt in the winter and fertiliser, seed or lime through the rest of the year.
There's an optional agitator kit to improve flow and the spreader connects to a tractor's three point hitch, working directly off the PTO.
This eliminates any issues associated with ground-wheel driven spreaders where ice and slippery surfaces make traction difficult. There are two models, the FS270 and FS360 with 270 litre and 360 litre hopper capacity and a spread width of up to 14 metres.
Parking areas, paths, paddocks, lawns and driveways are taken care of with the Wessex Country trailed spreaders, with two hopper sizes to choose from, the FS170T and FS270T.
Designed for use behind an ATV, UTV, 4 x 4, fork lift or any vehicle with a ball or clevis hitch, these spreaders feature an agitator to improve material flow.
Ideal for spreading free-flowing granular salt, the spinning disc with adjustable fins combined with the optional winter kit, spread limiter and hopper grid will give you accurate spreading every time.
Again the spread width is up to 14m and, when the winter load is behind you, the Wessex becomes a spring and summer spreader for seeding and fertilizing lawns and paddocks.
So whether you're spreading salt or preparing and treating the soil you have two spreaders in one for use all year round. Wessex has over 50 years of manufacturing high quality accessories. Broadwood International 01420 478111 www.broadwoodintl.co.uk
