The new Cartem ‘Spreadmaster’ chipping spreader has been designed as the ultimate solution for surface dressing works.

Controls have been greatly simplified with all chipping spreader and drive controls centralised on a single joystick control and steering by conventional steering wheel.

With a variable width twin section front aggregate hopper which is continuously expandable and a series of cut off gates the chipper is capable of spread widths of 300mm to 4.4 metres.

The power unit and drive train have been designed to enable high speed travel capability between jobs to minimise down time and maximise productivity.
