Hilltip introduces new truck-mount spreader

Hilltip introduced the IceStriker 8000 CM Combi Spreader with capacity of 8.0 cubic feet. This electric-powered, truck-mounted unit can spread bulk sand and gravel, bulk/bag salt, sand-salt mixes and fertilizers. It comes standard with Hilltip’s GPS speed-control system and has an integrated liquid tank for pre-wetting material as it’s spread or directly spraying brine on driving surfaces.

The IceStriker 8000 CM can be powered by 12- or 24-volt dual motors, which are mounted inside a sealed, weather-resistant enclosure. The speed-control system adjusts the material rate according to vehicle speed, ensuring the exact target rate is consistently applied on each job. It works with Hilltip’s exclusive HTrack tracking software, which uses a two-way GPRS tracking software for real-time equipment monitoring and control.

The integrated liquid tank has a 370-gallon capacity for pre-wetting material, which can help significantly reduce salt usage. A spray bar can be added for de-icing applications, as well as a 40-foot hose reel for spraying hard-to-reach areas.

For corrosion resistance, the spreader has a stainless-steel auger, and the modular hopper body is made of polyethylene. The IceStriker 8000 CM also includes features to ensure consistent material flow, such as an inverted V with a vibrator to help prevent bridging. Additionally, a stainless-steel flip-up chute is designed for spreading salt in environments with high humidity. Other standard features include built-in tie-down loops, a top screen, tarp kit, and an accessory wire for installing work and beacon lights.
