Snow Removal Equipment: 5 Things to Ask Yourself Before Buying a Spreader for De-Icing, Evergreen, Montana

When it comes to de-icing, there are a lot of spreaders available, for everything from small driveways to massive parking lots. The snow removal equipment experts from Currier’s Certified Welding in Kalispell, MT, carry a wide range of de-icing spreaders, and they’ve compiled a few tips to help you decide which type will be best for you.

If you want to up your de-icing game this winter, here are five things to consider when purchasing a spreader:

  • snow removal equipmentWhat Job Are You Doing? When choosing the right spreader for your snow plow, it’s important to consider your type of work. If you’re just de-icing the driveway, you’ll require a smaller spreader than if you’re maintaining large stretches of open road.
  • What Material Are You Spreading? If you’re spreading fine material, a medium-sized tailgate spreader will be ideal for your purposes. Those spreading large chunks of rock salt or other items may require a bigger spreader.
  • What Type of Attachment Is Preferable? For those who use their truck solely for snow plow purposes, the way your spreader attaches to your vehicle won’t matter much. However, if you use your truck for transportation during the off season, Currier’s Certified Welding suggests investing in a spreader that can easily be removed.
  • What Is the Ideal Spreader Motor? Another consideration when purchasing snow removal equipment for de-icing is the ideal motor for the job. If you’re spreading corrosive materials, such as lime or salt, you need to invest in a spreader that can handle such things.
  • What Control System Do You Prefer? When using your spreader, you’ll be controlling it from inside your snow plow, which is why choosing the right control system is essential. Currier’s Certified Welding recommends choosing a spreader with a well-lit control system that can be easily seen in the dark, as well as one that depends heavily on pictures to minimize distraction while driving.
