The wide range of selection offered by the SOLID family of spreaders provides solutions for all user requirements regarding spreading precision, the use of different types of spreading materials and spreader functionality. In addition to the choice of three types of conveyor systems, the SOLID family also offers a wide range of spreader volumes, which provides the user with completely modular solutions for all types of vehicles, roads and working conditions.
Spreading precision is achieved by the right choice of conveyor systems in combination with an advanced control system and design of the spreader’s mechanical components. The choice of a conveyor system adapted to the characteristics and type of spreading material enables a continuous supply of spreading material without the formation of a tunnel effect.
High precision and efficiency of spreading are enabled by the quality of construction of all spreader components and the EPOS control unit which enables the control of all spreading parameters directly from the vehicle cabin.
Combination of three systems of surface protection secures a long lifespan of the spreader even in the most difficult working conditions.
Simplicity of use
Includes the use of legs for quick mounting and demounting and a frame which can be adjusted for various mounting methods.
Main components of the spreader are construsted to work during the entire winter season without the need for additional maintenance.
Three main versions of SOLID spreaders differ in one key characteristic – the type of system used to transport the spreading agent to the chute spinner. The choice of conveyor systems depends on the type of used spreading material.
The SOLID X is the best choice for spreading with materials such as salt, sand or stone granules with low moisture content. Precision and efficiency of work with SOLID X is enabled by an auger conveyor system.
The spreader is intended for spreading with dry materials of low or moderate humidity. Reliability of spreading is guaranteed by a belt conveyor used for supplying the material.
The spreader is especially designed for work with the most difficult spreading materials, such as wet and adhesive sand with a high percentage of clay, coarse sea salt or a mixture of different materials. High reliability and efficiency of spreading is guaranteed by an especially strong chain conveyor which prevents the formation of a tunnel effect, regardless of the quality of spreading agents.
Simple control and high spreading precision
The operation of all RASCO spreaders is controlled by EPOS control units. Their dedicated development by RASCO experts makes them a leading solution for spreading control and monitoring. EPOS control units are used to control all spreader elements. Control of the spreader’s hydraulic actuators with a system of feedback connections ensures highly precise spreading in all work conditions, while the automated calibration system enables fast and simple calibration of spreading precision. Spreading parameters are not lost when the control unit is turned off and can be automatically activated the next time when the spreading process is started.
All information in real time
ARMS is an information and communication system for control, central monitoring, reporting and optimization of activities related to the maintenance of traffic infrastructure. Monitoring of working hours of people and machines as well as of the used resources (such as the used spreading salt, vehicle fuel etc.) in real time creates a unique possibility to quickly decide on potential saving methods. Unchangeable logs protect the user from liability by providing clear information on any taken action, while the reduced consumption of spreading material at the same time protects traffic infrastructure and its surroundings.
It can be carried out through built in vehicle hydraulics or a diesel hydraulic power unit mounted on the spreader, or with the fifth wheel.
Mounting of RASCO spreaders on vehicles
RASCO offers a range of options for mounting spreaders on vehicles, ranging from the most common RO-RO system which enables mounting in the vehicle’s tipper box, direct mounting on the chassis and hook-lift systems, to complex multi-purpose solutions which turn vehicles into multi-purpose working machines. Two key characteristics for mounting all spreaders on vehicles are simplicity and uncompromised safety for users and other traffic participants.
Mounting on tipper box
System for mounting the spreader in a tipper box using RO-RO (Roll-On, Roll-Off) legs and rollers on the device itself is the most common and simplest mounting method. The spreader is easily attached to the tipper box by using tension chains or belts.
Mounting on vehicle chassis
Suitable in situations when the vehicle is used exclusively for road maintenance. Different devices, including the spreader, can be easily replaced on the vehicle chassis using specially designed carrying frames.
Mounting on tipper box balls
Fast and simple mounting using the existing sub-chassis of the vehicle tipper box and a special carrying frame on the spreader. The simplest mounting method that enables complete vehicle multifunctionality.
Mounting on trailers
Spreaders are mounted on tractor or truck trailers, thus becoming independent from the towing vehicle.
Mounting on vehicles equipped with hook-lifts
A specially adjusted spreader frame enables simple mounting on vehicles equipped with a system for raising devices using a hook.
Mounting on vehicles equipped with skip loaders
Simple mounting on vehicles equipped with a container lifting system is enabled by special attachment points on the sides of the spreader.
