Hook Load De-icer
It’s been very busy in the shop this winter at Ag Enterprise Supply, Inc. We recently built this 2,750 gallon hook load de-icer. The convenience of being able to convert this truck from a de-icer to a dump truck or road sander is unmatched. One electrical connection and two hydraulic connections and this truck can be changed over to do a different job. Inside the tank is an agitation bar with an eductor installed directed at every leg to keep the product in suspension and from salting out. A high flow Ace pump, 2” full port Banjo plumbing and Raven flow controls allow this vehicle to apply 30 gallons per lane mile at 45 miles per hour. This rate is achieved with each lane of the 3 lane de-ice bar that was installed. A new design is the hand crank raise and lowering system for the spray bar. No more sleeved pieces to rust together on this one and it is easier on the operators when they need to remove or install this sprayer.
