Which Type of Salt Spreader is Right for You?
Snow is officially falling in much of the Midwest. Are you prepared? Whether you’re shopping for a salt spreader for the driveway at your house or you need a salt spreader that will get the job done for the entire city, Future Line Truck Equipment has the solution for you.
Purpose of a Salt Spreader
If you’re getting tired of spreading salt by hand or you need something that covers more area quickly, it may be time to invest in a salt spreader. When a winter storm sweeps through and our driveways, streets, sidewalks and parking lots become slippery, salt is necessary for melting the ice. By lowering the freezing point of the ice with salt, we can melt it and prevent dangerous driving conditions as well as injuries from slips and falls.

4 Types of Salt Spreaders
1. Walk-Behind Salt Spreader
If you require a salt spreader for a small to average-sized driveway or sidewalk, a walk-behind salt spreader is perfect for you. The walk-behind spreader does not require a vehicle and is a fairly inexpensive option. However, if you plan to spread salt at a business or larger area, the walk-behind likely won’t cut it.
2. Tailgate Salt Spreader
Ideal for large driveways and parking lots, the tailgate salt spreader is a popular option for many businesses. This spreader is usually used as a follow-up to plowing and can be easily mounted on 1/2 ton to 1 ton pickup trucks. Many of the tailgate salt spreaders at Future Line come with various mounting systems and a low profile design to provide an unobstructed rear view from the cab.
3. Under Tailgate Salt Spreader
Under tailgate salt spreaders are ideal for heavy-duty municipal and commercial applications. This type of spreader is perfect for a contractor as it allows for normal use of the dump body without interference.
4. V-Box Salt Spreader
For municipal use and other major projects, the V-Box salt spreader is the way to go. This spreader mounts easily on utility vehicles, pickups, dump, platform and utility trucks. Holding upwards of 2.5 cubic yards of salt, the Boss, Western and SaltDogg salt spreaders at Future Line are built for tackling ice-covered city streets.
