Striker Spreader

Western Products' Striker stainless steel hopper spreader is engineered to minimize waste and enhance spreading capabilities. 

The Striker spreader is built with low-maintenance, rust-resistant stainless steel for long-life protection against rust and is reinforced with wrap-around welded joints for durability. The spreader is available in six sizes.

The Striker hopper spreader features an innovative chute design to direct de-icing material to precise points on the spinner to cast material out and away from the truck. An easy-to-adjust 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 and reliable control over the 16 ½-inch conveyor and spinner mechanisms. The spinner motor is sealed inside a weather-resistant housing that protects it from corrosion. Gas and hydraulic options are also available.

Electric models feature an enhanced, dual variable-speed control to precisely 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 adjustment.

Information on the new Striker hopper spreader will be available in the online WESTERN Spreader Showroom in April.
