A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “We received the call at 14.47 and we were away at 15.39.”
One lane has been closed southbound and will remain closed until the vehicle has been recovered.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “The road is currently down to one lane so Traffic Scotland can recover the vehicle.”
The vehicle is one of many ploughs and gritters to be given comical names chosen by the public.
Monikers include Gritty Gritty Bang Bang, Plougher O’ Scotland and Sir Grits-a-lot.
The gritters can be followed on their journeys on Traffic Scotland’s interactive tracker.
