The GDS150 Gritter is the latest model in the Logic Ground Drive Salt Spreader range.
With its smaller capacity of 270litre (approx 335kg) it offers a suitable size machine for working behind smaller vehicles such as quads/ATVs, compact tractors, etc. but with the same unique design features and performance of other GDS models.
Since its launch in the late 1990s the Logic GDS Salt spreader range has proved to be an invaluable winter maintenance tool to many different customers in a huge variety of forestry, industry and municipal sectors. Through its specific design for the UK market, which primarily uses road/rock salt, it provides a reliable and efficient method of application. In short, as testified by many satisfied customers, it works!
The GDS Salt Spreader uses a moving-floor conveyor system similar to highway sized salt spreaders to convey the salt to the spinning disc system. The hopper will hold 270 litres (approx. 335kg) of road/rock salt and is capable of spreading all types of material, including wet rock salt, grit and sand. A unique agitation system and conveyor floor ensures wet or dry material can be spread effectively and accurately by a spinning disc. Working speeds of up to 15mph and road speeds between sites of up to 30mph mean wide areas can be covered quickly and efficiently.
The GDS Gritter is built to withstand the harsh conditions which occur when gritting with road/rock salt – the corrosive effects of salt can quickly bring equipment to a premature halt unless it has been designed to cope.
One of the major benefits of the GDS is that it can be towed behind any suitable towing vehicle, including ATVs/quads, UTVs,4x4s, pick ups, tractors, etc. This makes it very quick to deploy at the first signs of bad weather and for winter gritting jobs it dramatically reduces the time needed to complete the task, when compared to the manual alternative of spreading salt or gritting using shovels.
The GDS Salt spreader has application rates of between 5 – 80 grams/sq metre.
Spreading widths are variable with speed (for example spreading widths, see table below) and the unit can cast the salt to the left or right meaning that it can spread salt underneath parked cars.
Speed Spread width: 4mph –1.5m; 10mph–8.0m; 15mph–12.0m
