12 V spreader for vehicles with a loading bed
High capacity. Optimum range. Perfect control – POLARO® L/XL
The POLARO® L and POLARO® XL gritters are ideal for finely dosed dispensing of grit, salt and sand, and fertiliser over large areas. Your vehicle does not need a hydraulic drive or cardan shaft. Simply mount the gritter on a vehicle with a loading bed, 12 V socket, and a sufficient payload, and off you go!
If you wish to use the machine only for grit and sand, please state this in your order, and we will then install a reinforced screw conveyor. Whatever your spreading material, you can infinitely adjust the spreading width and rate directly on the control panel, and conveniently change the settings while on the move.
The POLARO® L/XL offers, including:
- Control console for easy, user-friendly control of all functions from the driver’s seat (as standard)
- Stepless adjustment of the spreading dosage
- Polyurethane hopper with screw conveyor and vibrator with automatic start-up, for a constant material flow
- All metal parts are of non-rusting stainless steel as standard
- Water-tight cables and gear motors (IP67)
- A transformer is required for 24 V operation
For an additional payment, both POLARO® models are available with a hopper extension, which increases its capacity, e.g. for gritting salt, to approx. 750 kg on the POLARO® L and approx. 1000 kg on the POLARO® XL.
Spread grit up to 6 mm in size

Special features of the POLARO® L/XL
As well as infinitely adjusting the speed of the spreading disc to set the working width, you can also control all other functions centrally via the control panel, such as:
- Altering the screw speed to control the discharge rate, and boost function for briefly discharging larger quantities of spreading material when necessary (ice formation)
- Three memory keys (P1–3) for individual settings
- Automatic breakaway for screw conveyor
- Empty warning, residue emptying, service prompts, etc.
All materials are designed for the particular challenges of winter work. So not only are all metal parts of non-rusting stainless steel as standard, but all cables and the individual gear motors are resistant to the ingress of dust and water (IP67). The hopper is made of temperature-resistant polyurethane that is completely impermeable to air and water, damps vibrations, and resists embrittlement.
The spreading disc can be manually positioned slightly more to the left or right, using two set screws. This way, material can be dispensed directly onto the neighbouring pavement or cycle path, for example, in parallel with gritting the road.
To achieve the desired results regardless of carrier vehicle, the discharge height of the spreading disc (recommended: 0.40 – 0.80 m from the road surface) can be adjusted in the blink of an eye to suit different types of vehicle.
The screw conveyor transports the material from the hopper to the spreader. If the flow is blocked, the vibrator – provided as standard – starts up automatically, breaking up the material in the hopper when necessary, so that it can continue to flow.
