Grit Bins & Spreaders - What You Need to De-ice Your Path

How do you get rid of the ice that makes your garden paths slippery? You will need grit bins and spreaders to do the job, but you want ones that will be reliable, and will be easy to use. So with this in mind, here are the grit bins and spreaders you need…

200 Litre Grit Bin Heavy Duty

This grit bin can hold 250kg of salt, and is very sturdy. It can handle a lot of wear and tear, so it ought to be able to last you for a long time. The bin is designed to make it through rough weather unscathed, and it is fitted with forklift grooves, so that it can be moved easily even when it is full. The bin has a lockable hasp on it for security, and so the lid will not come open accidentally and spill out the salt. You don’t need anything complicated or overly expensive when it comes to a grit bin, but it ought to be reliable and tough, which is exactly what this grin bit offers.

200 Litre Grit Bin (Stackable)

What’s nice about this particular grit bin is that it can be stacked, as the product description suggests. So, you can buy several of them and have all of your salt stored up for winter weather ahead of time without taking up a lot of space. This is a very durable bin with a simple, but tough design that makes it dependable and long lasting. The bin can hold about 250kg of salt, and has a wide opening for easy loading and unloading. You can’t ask for much more than that from a grit bin!

Cresco 20 Spreader (CR20SW)

When it comes to spreaders, you are mostly looking for something with the right capacity for your garden and driveway, as well as a spreader that is easy to use. The Cresco 20 is all that and more. It pushes easily thanks to the pneumatic wheels, and it is ideal for spreading salt, fertilizer, and more. This versatile device is designed with a high output setup that ensures it never gets stopped up. It can handle as much as 30 litres at once, and the flow rate is easily adjustable, so you can decide how much salt or other substance is spread at a time.

Cresco 1 Handheld Spreader

For something a little simpler, you can try this handheld spreader that you carry as you go. Since it doesn’t need to be pushed, it will not matter how iced your paths are, or how uneven the ground is. This is ideal for people who have had trouble with push spreaders in the past. The downside is that it is more work to use, since it has to be carried. Of course, the maximum capacity of this spreader will be less than one that you can push along the ground, but it works beautifully at evenly spreading salt or other substances in your garden and along your paths.
