The Turbocast™ 800 arrives safely in the Falkland Islands

The Falklands are divided up into 778 islands and islets in the South Atlantic Ocean. Its geographical position makes it a perfect habitat for an array of natural life. For a small island, it has a well-established culture and is steeped with historical value. Although remote, the Falklands are both self-sufficient and well connected to the outside world.

Atlink LTD recently purchased a Turbocast 800™ towable salt spreader from our sister company Glasdon International Limited to serve and help protect the growing population of the Falklands on a day to day basis.

Why choose the Turbocast 800 Towable Salt Spreader?

The Turbocast 800™ towable salt spreader is extremely efficient, and easy to manoeuvre using a quad bike, forklift truck or car. Made from Durapol®, it will not rust or chip whatever the weather or terrain. The Turbocast 800 can also hold a maximum load of 240kg, which allows for the distribution of wet or dry grit salt on a large scale, with the ability to spread up to 8 meters consistently.

Quality by Design

At Glasdon we understand that the Turbocast 800 Towable Salt Spreader is a specialist piece of equipment, and have therefore taken the opportunity to break down operational aspects of the Turbocast 800 towable salt spreader into a selection of simple demonstrations videos, located here on our Youtube page.
