Since its launch in the late 1990s the Logic GDS Salt Spreader has proved to be an invaluable winter maintenance tool for many different customers in a huge variety of 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 (Gritter) 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 465 litres (550kg- 600kg depending on moisture content) 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 between 5 - 15mph and "empty, return to base" speeds up to 30mph mean wide areas can be covered quickly and efficiently.
The GDS Salt Spreader is built to withstand the harsh conditions which occur when using 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 4x4s, pick-ups, UTVs or tractors.(For ATVs/quads see the GDS150 for a smaller capacity machine). 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.
Working speeds of between 5 -15mph (see below chart) mean you can cover the ground quickly with a maximum travel speed of 30 mph back to base for quick refilling. This model range is not recommended for contractor or multi site use where long distance of travel is required between spreading. For this use please see our PDS range which comes with full road suspension and over run brakes, or as a demount unit to be fitted into a vehicle.
The GDS range comes with 2 options of equipment:
‘R’ model - full lighting and mudguards. This model is recommended when working in amongst other vehicles. Please also be aware of our recommendation of having a working flashing beacon, either fitted to the spreader or towing vehicle.
‘S’ model - without any lighting or mudguards where the machine is only used in a traffic free environment .
Should you feel you require vehicle type approval please see our PDS354RB series which complies with this latest legislation. This would be a requirement for any salt spreader expecting to be taken on the road at normal road speeds over long distances, such as contractor/multi-site usage.
The GDS 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.
