More information about Grit Spreaders


What is a Grit Salt Spreader?

Grit Spreaders are designed to spread grit, salt, and horticultural products such as seed, fertilizer, and weed killer over a large area. Some grit spreader models are designed to be pushed along simply by hand, while others are made to be towed behind a lawnmower.

Grit spreaders are important for preventing ice buildup on roads and pathways. They work by using a rotating auger to distribute a thin layer of sand or grit onto the surface. The grit helps to improve traction and prevent the formation of ice crystals. Grit spreaders are typically filled with either sand or salt, and they are equipped with various settings that allow the operator to adjust the rate at which the material is dispersed. Grit spreaders are an essential piece of winter maintenance equipment, and they can be used to prevent slips and falls on icy surfaces effectively.

Farmers also often use them to spread seeds and fertilizer over their land evenly.

What are the benefits of using a Grit Salt Spreader?

A Grit Salt Spreader allows the user to spread products over a large area with minimal effort, whether it’s grit or salt to de-ice pavements, driveways, and car parks in winter, or horticultural products such as feed, fertilizer, or weed killer for use in gardens or agricultural areas. Many of the Grit Spreaders we offer feature an adjustable feed system and spray in a 360° motion allowing a large area to be covered quickly and efficiently.

Which Grit Spreaders are in the First Mats range?

We have various Grit Spreaders, including tow-along and walk-behind spreaders.

Our Tow Along Broadcast Grit Salt Spreader is available in two different capacities: 80kg or 57kg. It features a pin hitch design to attach to a ride-on lawnmower, making it an efficient product which is easy to use. As with many of our Grit Spreaders, it includes a 360° motion spray for a wide area of spread, along with a hopper screen to ease spreader flow and filter out contaminants.

If a lawnmower is not available, our Walk-Behind Grit Spreaders are ideal. They are simple to operate and come in a range of three different capacities. Choose between 57kg, 37kg or the lightweight 27kg for ultimate portability. These spreaders also feature a 360° motion spray, adjustable feed system, and strong and sturdy construction.
