Hydraulic system offers precise spreader control
Mentor, Ohio-based Buyers Products is offering a central hydraulic system with Garmin GPS ground-speed control. The system is designed to provide proportional spreader operation for snow and ice management on roads and streets. According to the company, the unit delivers materials efficiently, and can yield material savings.
“Incorporating the Garmin GPS with the ground speed spreader control gives the operator a more precise means of spreading material,” says Dave Zelis, director of sales and marketing at Buyers Products. “Just set it for the current conditions and it adjusts based on vehicle speed.”
In addition to the spreader control, the central hydraulic system features a sectional valve system with a 304 stainless steel construction main box. In the cab, a compact, three-function spreader controller and dump/hoist plow controller allow for quick adjustment for conditions. The unit has a Garmin GPS antenna, multi-function controller and indexed dial setup, and weighs 83 pounds.
The system has these spreader control features:
• Ground Speed Spreader Control Provides Proportional Spreader Operation
