Fisher Engineering has added three new tailgate spreader models to its full line of ice control equipment: the Fisher Speed-Caster 900 and 525, along with the Fisher Quick-Caster 300W wireless electric. These new spreaders will be integrated into the product line alongside the brand's existing Low Profile 2500, 1000 and 500 tailgate spreaders.
Speed-Caster 900 and 525. These spreaders are each powered by two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors, which power the heavy-duty auger delivery systems and spinner assemblies. The 900 model holds up to 720 pounds of bagged or bulk deicing material and is available with optional 2-inch receiver hitch, 3-point hitch and pivot/GM pivot mounts. The 525 model holds up to 420 pounds of deicing material and comes standard with combination 2-inch and 3-point hitch mounts.
Both the 900 and 525 feature a new, enhanced dual variable-speed control that allows operators to match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. The LED control features three standard accessory buttons, a dedicated blast button and easy-to-understand digital self-diagnostics that alert the operator when the spreader is empty or adjustments are needed.
Quick-Caster 300W wireless electric. This tailgate spreader comes standard with a 2-inch receiver hitch and 7-pin plug, making it easy to install on many vehicles without drilling or wiring. The wireless one-touch, on/off key fob control provides convenience and offers two spinner speeds to match spread patterns to the application. A wide variety of mounts are available, so the Quick-Caster 300W can fit on many vehicles, including pickup trucks, SUVs, UTVs and tractors.
A fully enclosed 12-volt motor and maximum torque transmission power the Quick-Caster spreader's 10-inch corrosion-free spinner. The hopper holds up to 3 cubic feet of rock salt, and a clear weather cover is available as an accessory.
