FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - POWER OPTIONS

Dual Electric Motors

Power Options

The two high-torque 12-volt electric motors provide quiet, reliable and independent control over the conveyor and spinner mechanisms. The spinner motor is sealed inside a weather-resistant housing, protecting it from corrosion, while the conveyor motor is completely sealed from the elements.

*Gas and hydraulic options also available
    In addition to the standard dual electric motors, the STEEL-CASTER™ stainless steel hopper spreader is available with the following gas and hydraulic power options:

Two Gas Powered Options: 10½ HP I/C Briggs & Stratton® motor or the 11 HP I/C Honda® motor. Hydraulic Powered Option: With the most available power in its class, the hydraulic powered motor option offers dual variable speed control and reliable operation.

FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - CONTROLS




Innovative Chute Design

Dual Electric Motor Control

Enhanced dual variable-speed control allows you to precisely match material delivery and spread pattern 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 truck cab designs.
    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.



FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - SHUTTER DEFLECTOR

Corrosion-Resistant Hopper

Shutter Deflector

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.     The easy-to-adjust circular shutter deflector allows directional spreading, providing optimal material control, while maintaining even coverage.

FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - MATERIAL DELIVERY


FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - SPINNER

Material Delivery


One of the widest in the industry, the 15 ½" pintle chain conveyor moves more material consistently and smoothly to help reduce bridging. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel guides provides extra protection and durability.     An extra large 15 ½" polyurethane spinner delivers a spread pattern of up to 40' and provides long-lasting, corrosion-free performance.




Accessory Integration

Dump & Work Light Switches

Conveniently connect accessories directly into the hub mounted in the back of the hopper. Accessories automatically integrate with the hopper control without having to run additional wires from the front of the truck.

*Feature available on dual electric motor models only.
    Operators can safely offload material or fill walk-behind spreaders by using the rear mounted conveyor dump switches. A third switch is also provided so that an accessory work light my be conveniently controled from not only the cab but also the rear of the hopper.

*Feature available on dual electric motor models only.

FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - DUAL SWING CHUTE


FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - CHUTE ASSEMBLY

Dual Swing Chute

Chute Assembly

The dual swing chute design opens from either side to provide easy access for maintenance or material unloading.     For precise material application, the chute assembly can be configured for either pickup truck or flatbed and dump body applications, 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.

For convenient access to the hitch, the chute assembly can be removed.



FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - INVERTED V / VIBRATOR

Adjustable Feed Gate

Inverted V / Vibrator

An adjustable feed gate provides additional control of material flow regardless of material type, reducing waste when traveling between sites.     An inverted V comes standard and helps keep sufficient material weight off of the conveyor, ensuring smooth startup and flow of material.

A vibrator kit is available as an accessory to help reduce bridging and keep material moving smoothly to the conveyor.

FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - TOP SCREEN


FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - RATCHET STRAPS

Top Screen

Ratchet Straps

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.     Ratchet straps are provided standard for additional spreader stability. A chain tie-down kit is available as an accessory.



FISHER® Steel-Caster™ Spreader - FLEET FLEX

Additional Standard Features


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.     The STEEL-CASTER™ hopper spreader is designed with FLEET FLEX technology for easy interchangeability between electric hopper spreaders without having to change the wiring or the controls.

It provides easy operation, increased reliability, simple wiring and easy installation. Additionally, accessories automatically integrate into the control for easy plug and play.

*Feature available on dual electric motor models only.
