Hilltip has added two additional products to is snowfighting arsenal, this time a pair of spray systems designed for smaller equipment.
Hilltip claims its new SprayStriker 65 TR and 90 UTV system are the only tailgate-mounted de-icing sprayers on the market. Designed for compact tractors, loaders and UTVs, the new brine sprayers allow smaller vehicles to take advantage of Hilltip’s SprayStriker technology when spraying pedestrian paths, walkways and hard-to-reach pavement.
The SprayStriker 65 TR and 90 UTV sprayers are powered by 7 GPM, 12V pumps designed for deicing liquids. In addition, Hilltip uses high-quality polyethylene tanks and zinc-based, powder-coated mild steel bodies for added corrosion protection.
Additional options include 40-foot hose reels, in-cabin controlled side nozzles to increase spray width, and 2.6-foot, 4-foot or 6.5-foot spray bars.
Hilltip is also includes an Android smartphone as a standard with the SprayStriker 65 TR and 90 UTV sprayers, preloaded with the Hilltip StrikeSmart app. Through the app, operators can customize spreading sessions according to the situation. Automatic GPS speed control will adjust the liquid flow (gal/1,000 sq ft) based on vehicle speed, or users can manually set a fixed speed through the app. In addition, the app collects and saves essential spreading data for reports and allows for control of other functions, like beacon lights and side nozzles.
For additional control and observation, all SprayStriker brine sprayers come standard with Hilltip’s exclusive HTrack tracking software. This allows for complete remote tracking and management of all sprayers from a computer, tablet or smartphone. One can monitor treatment routes, vehicle speed, GPS location and material usage in real-time. All this information can then be used to generate PDF reports for the most detailed documentation.
Lastly, the two-way GPRS communication channel allows application rates to be remotely set and adjusted for each customer’s site depending on changing weather conditions.
