How does a drop salt spreader work? Follow

In the same way as a generic or agricultural drop spreader and rather like a broadcast spreader, the material starts in a hopper.

As the spreader moves forward,  the material is released by gravity and vibration through a row of holes and, unlike a broadcast spreader, drops straight down to the ground.  

The distribution is measured so an even drop is achieved.

N.B. In any type of salt spreader, the spreading material (salt, grit) should always be free flowing and dry.
