FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Compact Spreader - DUAL ELECTRIC MOTORS


FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Compact Spreader - DUAL VARIABLE-SPEED CONTROL

Dual Electric Motors

Dual Variable-Speed Control

A fully enclosed 12-volt electric, ⅓ HP motor is mounted inside a sealed housing, protecting it from corrosion.     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 controls easy to read. Its compact size compared to traditional controls fits easily into today’s modern vehicle cab designs.

FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Compact Spreader - INNOVATIVE CHUTE DESIGN



Innovative Chute Design

Corrosion-Resistant Hopper

Baffles within the chute deliver a consistent spread pattern that reduces material waste. By directing material to precise points on the spinner, it helps to cast it away from the truck rather than onto the back of your bumper.     The low-maintenance, stainless steel, riveted construction provides longevity and protection against stress.

FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Compact Spreader - SHUTTER DEFLECTOR


FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Compact Spreader - MATERIAL DELIVERY

Shutter Deflector

Material Delivery

The easy-to-adjust circular shutter deflector allows directional spreading, providing optimal material control, while maintaining even coverage.     The 0.35 cu yd features a 11 ½"-wide pintle chain conveyor system while the 0.7 cu yd features a 15 ½"-wide pintle chain. This moves material consistently and smoothly to prevent bridging.

Dump & Work Light Switches

Flip-Up Chute

A third switch is also provided so that an accessory work light my be conveniently controlled from not only the cab but also the rear of the hopper.     Provides convenient access to the hitch, better ground clearance and easy clean-out.

FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Compact Spreader - ACCESSORY KNOCK-OUTS

Accessory Knock-Outs

Top Screen

Hoppers feature knock-out holes for plug and play integration of certain accessories.     A steel top screen comes standard, which helps break up large chunks of de-icing material during the loading process to prevent clogging and bridging during spreader operation.
