Spreader Spinner Disk
Spinner Disks for all Major Brand Spreaders
Whether you live in an area with winter weather hazards or just drive a snowplow to make a living (or to make some extra cash), having a salt spreader that is in working order is vitally important. And just as you want to keep your salt spreader in working order, you also want to ensure that you have a spreader spinner disk that is in good working order. Since this disk is the heart of any salt spreader, it is one of the most crucial elements of any salt spreader.
What Is a Salt Spreader Spinner Disk?
While there are many spreader spinner disk sizes, all of these disks accomplish the same objective: they ensure that salt is distributed evenly from your salt spreader. And while choosing your ideal salt spreader is its own process, choosing a salt spinner disk is its own issue.
Put simply, a spinner disk for a salt spreader is the implement that ensures that salt is spread safely and evenly across your driveway, walkway, or other outdoor surface. Before you buy a salt spreader spinner disk, you will want to be sure you know the dimensions of your salt spreader. The structure of each disk is remarkably similar--most are round and divided into sections to ensure the easy distribution of salt. The disk fits into your salt spreader and spins as the spreader moves forward. This distributes the salt across the covered surfaces.
How Does a Spreader Spinner Disk Work?
Salt spreaders are generally hand-loaded with salt, and spreader spinner disk sizes are generally dependent on the size of the spreader itself. As you push (or pull) the spreader, the disk is turned by the spreader's wheels. As the salt pours onto the disk, the disk's turning spews the salt out in a circle surrounding the spreader.
While all parts of a salt spreader are important, the disk is especially vital--a malformed or otherwise poorly-functioning disk will make for a poorly-distributed salt spread. And since disks can degrade over time, it's important to pay attention to the condition of the disk you have.
Are There Multiple Sizes or Are They Universal?
These disks come in a variety of sizes, and the size used depends on the size and specifications of the spreader. If you are unsure of which spreader disk to use, the helpful experts at Angelo's Supply are happy to help you determine which one will work for you and your current salt spreader.
