Spread Rate Calculator for Salt Spreader Calibration
Salt spreader calibration is a great first step in preventing excess salt usage.
Use this calculator to determine how much salt your spreader needs to apply per minute to achieve desired application rates.
Use a bucket and a scale to determine the per minute output of your spreader at different conveyor/auger speeds.
Mark the speeds that correspond to your desired rates and train your operators to follow the marked conveyor speeds as closely as possible.
We hope you find this calculator helpful.
