The Town of Oakville Goes with Schmidt Spreaders
Recently the Town of Oakville, Ontario, just west of Toronto, took delivery of two Schmidt-Nido Stratos Combi anti-icing spreaders.
The two units are part of a scheduled upgrade to the winter maintenance fleet and replace older, less reliable units. By upgrading to the Stratos Combi spreader the municipality was able to incorporate several beneficial features to the fleet. Primary among these is the liquid capacity, which comes in at just under 6000 l, stored in poly tanks integral to the spreader structure. Also new is the ability to spread dry and pre-wet dry material as well as spray pure liquid or add dry material (grit, sand, or salt) to the anti-icing spray. According to Jeff MacDonald of Amaco Equipment, "This allows the municipality to not only apply pre-event treatments, but they can add traction-improving material to their anti-icing operation."
These machines represent the state-of-the-art in spreading control technology available in Ontario. To assist Oakville with managing the application of snow, ice and traction control the two units come complete with the CL cabin control, GPS tracking and the Schmidt memory Module (SMM) data collection system. They are also able to upgrade to fully automated spreading, if required, in the future.
