Is there a grit/salt spreader available that will fit a John Deere Gator?

Logic GB and Broadwood International both offer equipment including spreaders and snow blades for use with utility vehicles and also kit for towing behind quad bikes.

The Logic GDS200 ground drive spreader has a 465-litre spreader and a full-length rolling floor and agitator. Spread width is 1.5m to 14m. Expect to pay £5,000 ex VAT. Somewhat cheaper at £1,395 ex VAT, the LDS120DS is a smaller spreader from Logic but can only be used for dry bagged salt.

The SnowEx range from Broadwood includes spreaders with 70 or 163-litre capacities for use with utility vehicles. These are tailgate mounting, but towable models are also available.

Another brand worth investigating is Epoke, from Bunce of Ashbury. The Mini 20 is suitable for towing behind utility vehicles, has a 200-litre capacity and 80cm spread.
