HillTip IceStriker™ Salt Spreader for trucks

IceStriker™ 1200-4200AM combi salt spreaders for trucks


The Hilltip IceStriker™ 1200-4200AM is a 12V and 24V electric sand and salt spreader for trucks. The spreader is having a stainless steel auger and the modular hopper body is made of polyethylene. Components on our spreaders provides you long lasting protection against corrosion and rust. The IceStriker™ combi salt spreader with it’s unique control system, saves you money and reduces the impact on the environment, while achieving the same results as before.


The poly hopper salt spreader for trucks can easily be transformed into a brine sprayer or into a pre-wet combi salt spreader that moistens the spreading material. The integrated tanks in the double walled hopper body holds up to 260 gallons of liquid. The spreader can also optionally be equipped with a 6’7″ dual spray bar or a hose reel with hand-held spray nozzle. This multi functional sand and salt spreader is for trucks from 1/2 ton up to 15000 lbs GVWR.


This sand & salt spreader is compatible with our optional HTrack™ tracking software. You can track and manage all of your spreading devices online on your computer, tablet or smartphone. The program shows treatment route and spreading details on the map in real-time or between specific time intervals. Spreading route details such as speed, GPS location and material used can be summarized and generated as PDF reports.

The controller lets you customize your spreading session according to your current situation. Automatic GPS-speedcontrol adjusts the amount of spreading material (lbs/sq ft) according to your vehicle speed, while manual mode lets you insert a fixed auger speed. The controller additionally collects and saves essential data to an USB memory, allowing you to generate spreading reports. The controller also makes it easy to turn on functions, like vibrator, beacon and work light, from inside the cabin.

* Calculations based on the following application rates: Dry salt 30g/m2, Pre-Wet 17g/m2, Brine 35ml/m2. With a Pre-Wet system the application rate is significantly lower, as the pre-wetted salt bonds to the ground and immediately start breaking up the ice.
