 Sand speaders

This winter has been warm and causing lots of freezing on the driveway. I'm considering a sand spreader to ease my work. The dealer is suggesting a Hurd 750, but based on the literature, the Hurd is really a seed spreader. They do mention in one place that it works well for sand and salt. But I'm not convinced that the Hurd is the answer. Among other things, it looks unstable when not mounted on the tractor. Anyone have any experience and/or advise you would like to share. Thanks.

 Sand speaders

Dave How much sanding are you planning to do? If you have a big drive or a big lot it may be much more feasible to build one if you have the means. An old car axle with a spreader plate and a hopper above with a adjustable gate. You can build 3 pt or with a draw bar. The tires drive the plate.

 Sand speaders

Harvey's note seems like a pretty good idea. I was wondering about the weight of both the spreader and sand. I suppose that many compacts couldn't carry enough sand plus a spreader on the 3ph to do much of an area at a time. I think questions about stability are probably pretty good ones.

There was a discussion about sand spreaders a year or so back, but I can't remember if it was here. I tried a search on 'sand,' but that wasn't it. Myself, I just try to learn to live with the ice. If I can keep a roughened surface, I like it better than sand. Sand tracks in houses and also creates 'armour plated' layers of ice.

It's been a tough year for ice here. It just hasn't dropped below freezing and stayed there. I sort of expect more ice problems. In the past, I've thought about trying to tear up ice surfaces with box blade scarifiers. I don't have faith the idea would work very well. If I try it, I'll post the results. One of Murf's creative ideas was to make a bar with some spikes that fit a rotary cutter. If done right, you could idle down a drive and the cutter would turn just fast enough to score the ice. There may be some safety issues there.

Actually Herd makes salt and sand spreaders as well, based on their seeders. They have a higher agitator and the gearbox is slowed down for salt and sand. You can see the different models at www.easternfarmmachinery.com under salt and sand spreaders. We have 4 of them for our snow removal division and they work well

 Sand speaders

Oops... I misspelled Herd, even though their ad was right in front of me. Age has its impact!
Harvey, thanks for the thought on building a spreader. I like challenges like that, but I'm afraid that this sanding season would be long gone before I could build one.
I have about 600 feet of driveway; 500 feet are up hill to return home and single lane wide. 100 feet are pretty flat and expands to 3 lanes in front of the garage. Experience over the three winters living here is that I cannot ignore the ice. If it sets hard, sand seems to be the only solution. I've been doing it by shoveling it out of the bucket, but that's a slow process and I feel my wife could not do it if I were not here. A sand speader seems like a good solution if I can straighten out my thoughts.
I have at NH TC40D. Herd says the model 750 is designed for category 1 3 point hitches and the 750 model number is the weight capacity of the spreader. I think I can sand the driveway a couple of time on one loading of the spreader. Thought?

donnyj, I'll check further on the sand speaders from Herd. Thanks for the web address.

Thanks to all. I appreciate the help. Dave
