Low maintenance and rust resistant, this spreader is loaded with features to maximize control and minimize waste. Available in six sizes for pickup, dump body and flatbed trucks, the STEEL-CASTER hopper spreader is a de-icing machine engineered to own the ice.
The FISHER® STEEL-CASTER™ stainless steel hopper spreaders were engineered for efficiency and designed for durability. Built with the experience of more than six decades of battling tough New England storms, the STEEL-CASTER hopper spreaders are available in six sizes, with more standard features and the latest advancements in technology, resulting in maximum material control and minimal waste.
Constructed from maintenance-free, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the hopper is reinforced with welded joints,which wrap around for long life and protection against stress.
Innovative Chute Design
Reduce material waste with this innovative chute design that delivers material to the precise points on the spinner that cast it out and away from the truck, instead of back on your bumper.
Dual-Swing Chute Design
The dual-swing chute design opens from either side to provide easy access for maintenance or material unloading.
Circular Shutter Deflector
Maximize material control with the easy-to-adjust, circular shutter deflector that provides directional spreading while maintaining even coverage and preventing materials from going where they aren’t intended to go.
An inverted V comes standard to prevent material from bridging and to keep weightoff of the conveyor, ensuring smooth startupand flow of material.
In addition to the standard dual electric motors, the STEEL-CASTER™ stainless steel hopper spreader is available with gas and hydraulic power options.
For precise material application, the chute assembly can be configured for either pickup or flatbed trucks or for a dump body application, ensuring you’re always spreading at the optimum height. An extended chute is standard on 9′ and 10′ models. An extension kit is available as an accessory only on 7′ and 8′ models.
Removable Chute Assembly
For convenient access to the hitch or for material off-load, the chute assembly canbe easily removed without the use of tools.
Additional Standard Features
Ratchet straps and tie-down points are included for strapping the hopper to the truck. For additional safety, bolting bars are also provided to attach the hopper to the vehicle and a Center High-Mounted Stop Light (CHMSL) is standard.
