SPEED-CASTER™ 525 SPREADER
Features a 5.25 cu ft poly hopper for long lasting durability that holds up to 420 lbs of bagged or bulk de-icing material.
SPEED-CASTER™ 900 SPREADER
Features a 9.0 cu ft poly hopper for long lasting durability that holds up to 720 lbs of bagged or bulk de-icing material.
Dual Electric Motors
Two high-torque, 12-volt electric motors provide quiet, reliable, independent control over the auger and spinner mechanisms.The spinner motor is sealed inside a weather-resistant housing, protecting it from corrosion.
Dual Variable-Speed Control
Enhanced, dual variable-speed control allows you to precisely match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. Four standard accessory buttons and a dedicated blast button provide optimum in-cab efficiency. Easy-to-understand, digital self-diagnostics alert the operator when the hopper is empty or when adjustments are needed, and LEDs make the control easy to read. Its compact size compared to traditional controls fits easily into today’s modern truck cab designs.
Material is delivered by a heavy-duty, powder coated, horizontal steel auger that automatically backs itself in and out until an obstruction is cleared or a required adjustment has been made.
Spinner and Spreading Width
The SPEED-CASTER 525 spreader features a 10″ spinner made of nylon/glass-reinforced resin that delivers a spreading width up to 30′. The SPEED-CASTER 900 spreader features a 12″ steel spinner that delivers a spreading width up to 40′.
Inverted V / Vibrator
An inverted V helps keep material weight off the auger, ensuring smooth startup and flow of material. It is directly connected to the vibrator to reduce bridging and keep material moving to the auger.
Accessories automatically integrate with the tailgate control without having to run additional wires from the front of the truck.
Top Screen and Lid
The steel-rod top screen breaks up chunks of de-icing material and a molded polyethylene lid protects the material from the elements.
