Some new product news from Hilltip in time for the 2022-23 winter season. The Findland-based snow and ice equipment manufacturer, which entered the North American market in 20202, announced it now offers its SprayStriker 2600 sprayer for de-icing and anti-icing applications and claims it's the "most efficient truck-mounted brine sprayer on the market."

Here are some specs about the SprayStriker 2600 to help back up that claim:

  • With a 265-gallon capacity, the unit is durable and lightweight with a polyethylene tank and powder-coated stainless-steel frame
  • 6'7" wide spray bar, which can be flipped up when needed, provides coverage with 14 nozzles for excellent coverage
  • Dual 12V pumps apply liquid at rates up to 20 gallons per lane mile at a maximum speed of 20 miles per hour
    GPS speed control automatically adjusts the flow according to the vehicle speed to consistently achieve the desired rate across the treated area
  • A color screen controller adjust application rates and other sprayer functions from the cab.

And like all SprayStriker sprayers, the 2600 includes Hilltip’s exclusive HTrack tracking software. This system, according to Hilltip, offers the industry’s only two-way GPRS capability. This allows users to create work sites, set customized application rates, monitor drivers, and document all activities remotely using a computer, smartphone or tablet. The unique technology offers unmatched benefits for both managers and drivers in the winter maintenance business.

Other standard features of the SprayStriker 2600 include a 2-inch camlock inlet for filling the sprayer, an additional rinse tank for cleaning the spray system after each use, and built-in tie-down straps for strapping the unit to the truck. It is also equipped with an accessory wire for powering the optional beacon light. Other options include a manual spray nozzle with a 40-foot hose reel, adjustable leg stands, and solenoids on the end nozzles.
