POINT OF VIEW
CONSIDER IT DONE.
Get a better look at your high-quality work as you move onto the next job with the WESTERN® Low Profile tailgate spreaders. These high-density, single-stage, poly tailgate spreaders sit lower on trucks to deliver top spreader performance without affecting the operator’s view from behind the wheel.
A latching, molded polyethylene lid protects de-icing material from the elements.
A fully enclosed 12-volt electric, 1/3 HP motor is mounted inside a sealed housing, protecting it from corrosion.
Choose between a variable speed control with an "on/off" button and blast option to optimize material usage or a basic "on/off" toggle control (controls are sold separately).
The low profile tailgate spreaders feature corrosion-free polyethylene hoppers for long-lasting durability.
Material is delivered by a powder coated, vertical steel auger to provide long-lasting, reliable performance.
Models 500 and 1000 both feature a durable 10" polyurethane spinner that delivers a spread pattern of up to 30'.
Model 2500 comes standard with a large, 15" polyurethane spinner that delivers a spread pattern of up to 30'.
ADJUSTABLE FEED GATE
On Model 2500, a specialized "saw tooth" feed gate and auger design combine to deliver complete, reliable flow control with positive shut-off, eliminating spillage and waste.
The Model 500 tailgate spreader comes standard with a Class III receiver hitch mount.
The Model 1000 tailgate spreader requires the additional purchase of one of the available mount options: a Class IV receiver hitch mount, a fixed bumper mounting system, or the SWING AWAY® mount.
The Model 2500 tailgate spreader comes standard with a Class IV receiver hitch mount.
Add additional spreader stability to your vehicle with nylon tie-down ratchet straps. Standard on the 500 and 2500 models only.
The coated steel top screen helps break up large chunks of de-icing material during the loading process to help prevent clogging and bridging during spreader operation.
Redirect material onto the roadway and away from your vehicle by using an adjustable deflector that can be positioned in various directions.
Reduce spillage of finer grained material by utilizing a 5-Flight Auger. A tighter corkscrew design with 5 turns over the same distance as the standard 3.
