The Glasdon Guide to Towable Salt Spreaders

At Glasdon, we design and manufacture towable salt spreaders that are ideal for dispersing grit and/or rock salt, across large surface areas.

Our towable spreaders are most at home on private roads and multiple carparks, whilst also encompassing environments where manual gritting would be inefficient, and potentially dangerous.

Take a look at our towable salt spreaders below, and help identify which could be the perfect addition to your workplace:
