Fisher Engineering introduced the all-new STEEL-CASTER 0.7 cu yd stainless steel hopper spreader at the 2020 NTEA Work Truck Show.
This new spreader joins the STEEL-CASTER line by providing high-performance ice control capabilities specifically for half-ton and light-duty trucks.
In addition, Fisher has also unveiled the STEEL-CASTER 0.35 cu yd stainless steel hopper spreader, specifically for UTV and compact truck applications. It offers a high-quality, riveted construction, a 12wide pintle chain conveyor system, and includes many of the same features of Fisher’s larger STEEL-CASTER hopper spreaders.
“Not all jobs are created equal, but they all need high-performance equipment,” said Tyler Jones, product manager for Fisher Engineering. “We designed these new STEEL-CASTER hopper spreaders precisely for half-ton and light-duty trucks, as well as UTVs and compact trucks, so more vehicles in a customer’s fleet can get in on the ice control game.”
Both new STEEL-CASTER hopper spreaders feature dual variable-speed control for precise control of material delivery and a flip-up chute for easy hitch access and clean-out. The lightweight, stainless steel, riveted construction provides durability without taking an excess toll on the vehicle.
The STEEL-CASTER 0.7 cu yd stainless steel hopper spreader offers a 5-foot-long hopper and up to 30 feet of spreading width. Meanwhile, the 0.35 cu yd stainless steel hopper spreader has a 3-foot-long hopper and delivers a spreading width of up to 20 feet.
Users have the option to add a pre-wet and direct liquid application kit accessory to the larger STEEL-CASTER 0.7 cu yd model. With the addition of this accessory, the spreader can also be used to pre-wet materials or spray brine directly onto the driving surface for anti-icing applications. The accessory kit includes two 25-gallon pre-wet tanks, a pump and a spray kit.
Additional accessories include:
● Extension collars to increase the material capacity
● Spill guard kit
● LED work light kit
● Central point grease kit
● Vibrator kit
● Inverted V kit
● Tarp cover
