Western Products is expanding its ice control equipment line with the addition of a the Striker hopper spreader and three new tailgate spreaders—the PRO-FLO 900 and PRO-FLO 525 tailgate spreaders and the LOW-PRO 300W wireless electric tailgate spreader.

The Striker hopper spreader is available in six sizes:

  • 7′ 1.5 cu. yd.;
  • 8′ 2 cu. yd.;
  • 9′ 3 cu. yd.;
  • 9′ 4.5 cu. yd.;
  • 10′ 4.5 cu. yd.; and
  • 10′ 6 cu. yd.

It features a chute design to direct deicing material to precise points on the spinner to cast material out and away from the truck. A circular shutter deflector allows one-sided spreading operation, preventing materials from being spread to unintended areas.

Two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors provide quiet control over the 16 1/2″ conveyor and spinner mechanisms. The spinner motor is sealed inside a weather-resistant housing that protects it from corrosion. Gas and hydraulic options also are available.

Electric models feature an enhanced, dual variable-speed control to match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. Four standard accessory buttons, a dedicated “blast” button and digital self-diagnostics alert the operator when the hopper is empty or needs adjustments.

The PRO-FLO 900, which is 9 cubic feet, and the PRO-FLO 525, which is 5.25 cubic feet, feature two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors. Both spreader models include a new enhanced dual variable-speed control that allows operators to match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. The LED control features three standard accessory buttons, a blast button and digital self-diagnostics that alert the operator when the spreader is empty or adjustments are needed.

The PRO-FLO 900 holds up to 720 pounds of bagged or bulk deicing material and is available with optional 2″ receiver hitch, three-point hitch and pivot/GM pivot mounts. The PRO-FLO 525 holds up to 420 pounds of material and comes standard with combination 2″ and three-point hitch mounts.

The LOW-PRO 300W wireless electric tailgate spreader comes standard with a 2″ receiver hitch and seven-pin plug. The wireless one-touch, on/off key fob control offers two spinner speeds to match spread patterns to the application.

A fully enclosed 12-volt motor and maximum torque transmission power the LOW-PRO spreader’s 10″ corrosion-free spinner. The hopper holds up to 3 cubic feet of rock salt. Clear weather cover is available as an accessory.
