ITH the
weather
becoming
increasingly
unpredictable,
extremes are
becoming more
of a norm. Many
companies and
organisations in both
the private and public
sector must consider
what equipment they
need to tackle a harsh
winter season. County
Antrim manufacturer
Quad-X have designed
and developed a range
of ATV equipment to
deal with ice and snow
removal.
The Quad-X True
Grit is a commercial
spec salt spreader
range, developed
in response to the
need for a small
scale commercial
machine popular
with amenities, large
companies, farms
and hire companies.
This spreader is
capable of spreading
damp salt thanks to
the feed mechanism
continually pushing
material forward,
irrespective of
moisture and
consistency, all to
help prevent clogging
and facilitate an even
spread of salt.
The machine is
Gear up for ice and snow
available in various
capacities and models
including from 130L in
a towed model, and up
to 600L in a mounted
model, suitable for
pick-up trucks.
Spreading can be
activated from inside
your vehicle and
spread width can
be adjusted thanks
to a user friendly
control unit giving
precise control during
operation. With an
adjustable spinner
position, spread can
be offset to the left or
right.
Quad-X also offer
an ATV mounted
salt spreader, in 60L
capacity. The 60L
model fits to the rear
rack of an ATV and
is powered by a 12v
motor to ensure an
even spread. The
plastic hopper is UV
stabilized and durable
while the stainless
steel spinner and
shutter plates help
reduce corrosion.
Quad-X offer a
fantastic Irish built
alternative to the
array of cheap Italian
six bag spreaders.
