The chip spreader is a machine used in road works to create the bonding layer of the road, before the wearing course. There are self-propelled chippings and mounted chippings that are attached to the back of a dump truck.
A chip spreader is equipped with a hopper or a tipping bucket that allows it to transport the chippings; these are dumped onto the roadway from the rear of the machine. Some models are equipped with an on-board computer which allows precise dosing of the chippings. A platform that can accommodate one or two operators is sometimes installed to control the flow of the machine and ensure that the chippings are spread evenly over the entire working width.
The chip spreader can be coupled with a spreader: this is called a spreader-chip spreader: the machine spreads chippings and then covers them with binder.
