When winter turns a sidewalk into a hazard for pedestrians, the Trackless Rear Mount Sidewalk Spreader can be deployed to improve the conditions and reduce liability. Applying salt, sand, or a mixture of the two is the most effective way of de-icing surfaces and is an essential part of a sidewalk maintenance program. However, finding an economical way to apply these materials can be difficult. Our solution conserves material and minimizes waste which ultimately leads to reduced fuel costs and a lower overall cost of operation.
Designed for Sidewalks
The Rear Mount Sidewalk Spreader was explicitly engineered for sidewalk applications. By dispensing a 41″ spread width, it is designed to avoid the waste and turf damage often associated with broadcast-type spreaders. The delivery roller further conserves material by spreading it evenly in a diamond pattern rather than a solid layer. Making efficient use of the spread material will allow the operator to go farther, prolonging the need to return for a refill, ultimately saving material, labour and fuel costs.
The attachment’s hydraulic drive system powers the agitator and the delivery roller. A rotary dial switch in the switch panel provides ten settings to adjust the amount of material being dispensed. Three screw-jack stands enable a single person to safely attach or remove the spreader without the aid of a lifting device. The lid will keep moisture out and prevent salt or sand from being drawn into the engine compartment.
Many of our customers opt to use the Power Angle Sweeper to sweep snow from sidewalks as they spread material from the Rear Mount Sidewalk Spreader. With separate hydraulic systems powering the sweeper and spreader, the attachments can be independently engaged or disengaged.
A switch allows the operator to select run or autorun. In autorun mode, the sander automatically stops spreading whenever the tractor stops or is shifted into reverse. Without this feature, an operator can go through material three times as fast if they do not physically shut the sander off and on up to several hundred times per day. Run mode allows the sander to run constantly. It also allows an operator to quickly empty material back at the yard by selecting the highest spread setting and selecting run mode.
