Hilltip IceStriker™: Discover the advantages of electric spreaders for pickups and trucks

Riko Ribnica, in collaboration with the Finnish company Hilltip, presents a diverse series of IceStriker™ spreaders with capacities ranging from 550 to 7000 liters. These spreaders are designed for efficient sand and salt distribution, easy use, maintenance, and resistance to weather conditions. At the outset, we want to highlight a feature that unites all the series presented below – high-quality built-in equipment at a competitive price.

Advantages of Hilltip Icestriker™ spreaders with standard equipment:

  • Track-dependent spreading system for precise spreading (g/m2).
  • Installation without the need for additional hydraulic installation on the vehicle, as the spreaders are adapted for battery-powered operation.
  • High-resistant materials (PU, PVC, stainless steel) for long-term use in demanding conditions.
  • GPS tracking for online work monitoring.
  • Convenient control with steering from the cabin via the color LCD controller STRIKESMART™.
  • Easy assembly and disassembly for vehicle flexibility when the spreader is not needed.
  • Automatic vibrators to prevent “tunneling” of bulk material.
  • Electric motors protected from overloads and weather impacts.
  • The IceStriker™ spreaders’ housing is designed as a double wall, acting as a brine reservoir that can mix with spreading salt for faster operation or spray for preventive spreading.



The road maintenance software HTrack™ sets a new industry standard and seamlessly connects with all IceStriker™, SprayStriker™, and SnowStriker™ models. This online tool allows monitoring and control via computer, tablet, or mobile phone through the Hilltip application.

The HTrack™ tracking system enables continuous communication between drivers and operations via a two-way GPRS communication channel. Stay informed about locations requiring intervention throughout the entire process, simplifying efficient and precise interventions. Additionally, application rates can be adjusted remotely for each customer based on prevailing weather conditions, allowing the driver to focus on quick and safe operation.


Series of Spreaders for Pickups and Light Trucks

Electric spreaders for salt and sand, Hilltip IceStriker™ 550-1100, are specifically designed for European pickup vehicles and light trucks. Their compact design and lightweight construction allow easy installation on these vehicles without additional modifications. The lightweight polyethylene tank and stainless steel mounted parts provide long-term protection against corrosion and rust. With the unique HTrack™ control system, IceStriker™ is the leading salt spreader for pickup trucks, helping you save money, reduce environmental impact, and achieve efficient results.

Spreaders from the IceStriker™ 900AM-1250AML series are especially suitable for light trucks such as Fuso Canter, Renault Master, and Ford Transit. Due to their light housing, they are more suitable than steel competitors. These often have their own motor drive, which means additional costs and maintenance. IceStriker, on the other hand, has a drive via the vehicle’s battery, reducing costs and making operation easier.

Series of Larger Spreaders for Trucks

Hilltip IceStriker™ 1600-7000 brings innovation, durability, and effective winter maintenance. These electric sand and salt spreaders are designed for trucks up to 18 tons.

Features of electric spreaders Hilltip IceStriker™ 1600-7000 include:

  • Adjustable material feed: Allows choosing between a screw and chain conveyor for optimal adaptation.
  • Multi-purpose use: Option to adjust for use as a liquid spreader or combined salt spreader that moistens the spreading material.
  • Large brine reservoir: Built-in double-wall reservoirs can store up to 1400 liters of liquid, ensuring long-term use.
  • Tracking and control with the HTRACK™ system: The HTRACK™ system allows tracking and controlling the spreader, increasing winter maintenance efficiency.
  • Light and durable construction: Modular polyethylene tank and stainless steel mounted parts provide long-term protection against corrosion.
  • Suitable for a wide range of vehicles: Designed for trucks up to 18 tons, including smaller and medium-sized trucks.
  • Adjustability based on loading area length: Option to adjust based on the length of the loading area on the vehicle.

COMBI PLUS – It includes additional liquid tanks for models above 3000 liters.

COMBI PLUS further enhances the capabilities of Hilltip IceStriker™ spreaders. It includes additional liquid reservoirs for models above 3000 liters, each with a capacity of 1000 liters, in addition to those already integrated into the base spreader. This flexible system allows upgrading 1-3 additional reservoirs depending on user needs.

The optional COMBI PLUS system offers versatile options for using salt and sand spreaders for trucks. In addition to basic functions, it allows additional equipment such as a 2m spray boom and a winding reel with a spray nozzle. This enables a wider range of spreader use based on the user’s specific requirements and environmental conditions.

Additional liquid reservoirs allow for a longer operating period without refilling, contributing to increased efficiency and productivity in winter road maintenance. The COMBI PLUS system is designed for easy installation and maintenance, enabling quick adaptation of the spreader to changing work conditions.
