Gritters Trucks For Sale

Gritters are used regularly throughout the colder months to ensure that road surfaces remain free from ice, making them essential in ensuring that other vehicles can get on the road safely even if temperatures drop below zero. This is demanding work and requires that gritters are specifically built to withstand use in unfavourable conditions.

So if you are buying a used gritter truck, check that it is not only functional, but also in a state that will allow it to keep up with whatever demanding workload you have in store. Because gritters can spend many months of the year in storage, regular maintenance will also need to have been done so that you can be sure you are getting a good deal.

Typically, a used gritter will originally have been owned by a local council and is often being sold on directly after its time there. They can feature a cab with a unibody design to which the hopper containing the gritting material is attached directly, or there might be a compartmentalised approach with a cab and separate trailer. The mechanism used to spread the grit will be a hydraulically powered impeller, which is a part that you will want to check out if you are intending to avoid any expensive repairs in the short term. A separate engine may power this part to aid with dispensing. Checking the integrity of the chassis, suspension and other technical elements for signs of damage is similarly sensible.

Because gritter trucks may face particularly unpleasant conditions on the road, they are often equipped with other pieces of kit to allow them to keep on going when other types of vehicles might have to be abandoned. One of these common features is a snow plough bracketed on to the front. Used gritters may come with both the bracket and a plough included, while others will only have the bracket and will require the buyer to source a compatible plough to make use of it. You should be made aware of this before you purchase so that you are ready to use the gritter as intended.

Further adaptations intended for winter use are present on many gritter trucks, with diesel engines supplying drive to wheels at the front and rear to improve traction and minimise the chances of skidding. 6x4 and even 6x6 gritters are available, so depending on the intended application, you should be able to take your pick. The hopper itself is another important component to consider, and you should check both the capacity of material it can carry, expressed in litres, as well as the total weight of the load that the truck can bear. These elements will determine whether or not it is appropriate for your purposes and will help you make a decision when buying used gritter trucks. Many models offer mounted lights to both alert other road users to the gritter’s presence and also enable drivers to better see what they are doing, so the condition of these must also be considered.
