Peacock Salt recently undertook a study to compare the salt saving recovered by a number of UK Gritting Contractors when they switched from a leading brand salt spreader, to the Hilltip IceStriker 850.
Peacock Salt compared data over two winter seasons, one year with the leading brand spreader and one season with the Hilltip IceStriker 850. The comparison used the same region of the country and winters with similar weather pattern. It also accounted for the number of site visits and worked out a weight per site visit. Both spreaders held a similar weight of salt.
It was found that sites using the Hilltip IceStriker 850 used 33% less salt.
