Precision dicing applicator for dry/liquid mixtures


Highway Equipment Company recently introduced the new Xzalt Precision Applicator. The Xzalt delivers a 70:30 ratio of dry/liquid material, reducing salt usage while accelerating ice melt. The mixed material delivered produces less material bounce and improves adhesion to the road, virtually eliminating over-application on roadside shoulders. Featuring a directional spinner, the Xzalt broadcasts mixed material on one, two, or three lanes to reduce time, fuel and miles traveled. FORCE America, Inc.’s SSC6100 Spreader Control has been engineered to work with the Xzalt, offering unique, easy-to-use features. These include a pre-defined setting that temporarily widens the swath width to cover a turn lane or intersection, or be programmed to reduce from multiple lanes to a single lane in the event of oncoming traffic.
