    We have a old Lely centreliner, has anyone used a twin disk spinner for applying grit to a single track lane? Don't really want to be gritting the hedge.

    Put some deflecters on it so it's them and drops

    That's what I was hoping to be able to do, guess it's just a trial and error job just keep cutting them down until it only spreads 3m.

  5. Grit will just sit in the hopper and not come out,,,,,,,will need a proper agitator to work

    I found that out about 4 hours ago! What a ballache. HAve welded small plates 3" coming up inside the hopper from the disks but it still bridges above the plates. Anyone recommend a purpose built tractor/telehandler mounted/towed gritter?

    Maybe @newholland will let me buy shares in it, he can have it march-september and we'll have it oct-feb
     
  12. You could make an agitator?? It needs to be on a universal joint and be up about 400 mm. Difficult to explain but google amazone or Fleming etc and you will see what’s required
