What are surface spreaders used for?
When you’re resurfacing a rural road, a used spreader allows you to cover the surface quickly and easily with a controlled amount of whatever aggregate you’re using – whether it’s bitumen, chipping or something else.
Popular road spreader brands
Phoenix chip spreaders are incredibly popular, with the used Phoenix MK7 chip spreader ideal for surface dressing works, with a front aggregate hopper capable of spreading entire rural road widths.
Wirtgen spreaders spread cement on the ground ahead of a soil stabilizer, allowing the stabilizer to run over it and mix it with the soil.
The Scania R95 is a bitumen tank with a rear spray bar, which coats the road with hot tar, and chippings are then spread on the surface and rolled in. This applies a surface dressing on to the existing road surface, and is an economical and quick way to renew the surface.
If you already have a truck, the SPS 1602 is a 2-axle trailer spreader which is more cost effective than buying a standalone machine.
