PLACE SALT EXACTLY WHERE IT’S NEEDED

When precision is needed with salt placement, the new line of stainless steel drop spreaders from Western Products is the answer. The Drop 250 and Drop 600 spreaders provide up to 36″ of spread width in a drop pattern so the salt stays exactly where your vehicle drives. And with three mounting systems, these units can fit on most UTVs, compact tractors, or wheel loaders to make quick work of sidewalks, walking paths, and other paved surfaces where truck equipment can’t easily gain access.
