Enjoy the View with the Low Profile Tailgate Spreader

When you need a smooth functioning tailgate spreader and an unobstructed view from the cab, you need a WESTERN® Low Profile Tailgate Spreader. Whether you choose the Model 500, 1000 or 2500, all three spreaders are ideal for spreading #1 rock salt, calcium chloride and other de-icing materials. Choose between in-cab “on/off” control, or variable speed control option, for all three tailgate spreader models.
