Is there a way to do this in hashcat?

Being able to brute force salts isn't a feature of hashcat.  But there is nothing stopping you from creating the salts yourself and including them along with the hash in a hash file.

You can create the file with a static hash value and try different salts.

Make the hash file look like:

You get the idea.
wouldn't that take up alot of space?

That depends.  How much is a lot?  How many salts do you want to try?

The problem you will have with trying so many salts with a static hash is actually memory, not hard drive storage.  You can only try so many hashes at a time due to memory limitations of whatever GPU you have.
