We manufacture Tailgate Chip Spreader that is designed to mount on a standard truck body in place of the tailgate. Chip Spreaderis generally used to spread, uniformly and efficiently, pre-coated aggregate chips after the bitumen spraying according to road construction requirements.
The Chip Spreader body is constructed from pressed steel with square and rectangular section. Pneumatic tire transmits the drive from the road surface to a dog clutch mounted on a lay shaft. Further the drive to the feed roller is transmitted through chain and sprocket mechanism.
A metered application results by using spring loaded drive wheel, that automatically contacts the road surface as the body is tipped to the working position, and rotates the feed roller relative to ground speed through an operator controlled dog clutch. The spreading width can be controlled by lever operated gate.
