When the snow is out, you need salt for the roads. Icy conditions and cold temperatures make it easy for ice to pile up on asphalt and concrete surfaces. A salt spreader can help you combat and prevent ice buildup. Beyond safety, this can also make it easier to shovel snow from the driveway and sidewalks. Most models are walk-behind spreaders you manually push to move. If you have a truck, ATV, or a tractor, other spreaders are towable for roads or larger areas you need to cover. Vehicle-mounted spreaders are the best for covering entire streets or neighborhoods – so everyone on the street will be happy.
