Gritting pathways and roads is essential for the safety of staff, customers and visitors moving around your facilities and sites during winter.

Spreading grit or ice melt by hand may not always be practical and can lead to inconsistent coverage. Manual gritters are ideal for car parks, footpaths, drive-ways and pavements as they require minimum effort and can spread wet or dry grit salt effectively.

Glasdon manual salt spreaders offer two methods of spreading; drop spreading and broadcast spreading. The Cruiser™ 50 is specifically designed as a drop spreader, providing accurate, controlled spreading to a pre-defined width making it ideal for footpaths and walkways. This sidewalk salt spreader is best suited for use on private premises to increase safety for pedestrians. Alternatively, the larger capacity Turbocast™ 300 is a multi-functional gritter offering controlled drop spreading along with broadcast spreading for widths ranging between 3 and 7 metres. Use this walk behind spreader to grit wider surfaces such as playgrounds and courtyards with ease.

We also offer towable salt spreaders that are perfect for larger areas such as car parks and small side roads. These can be operated by a car, truck, quad-bike or any appropriate vehicle fitted with a tow bar. Need some help choosing the right gritter?
