Hilltip StrikeSmart PlusThe StrikeSmart™ PLUS controller from Hilltip, Fort Wayne, Ind., is available for the company’s line of winter maintenance spreaders and sprayers. Featuring an 8.7-in. touchscreen, the new control system monitors real-time weather forecasts and surface conditions and then recommends the ideal materials and spread rates for effective ice management, the company says. It also automates equipment settings to ensure the proper material rates are applied. The StrikeSmart PLUS controller works in conjunction with Hilltip’s TempStriker™ sensor, which continually monitors variables like temperature, humidity and surface conditions.
