SUPERCHARGE YOUR SALT
USE LESS SALT & ACCELERATE MELTING
Pre-wetting salt and de-icing material before it hits the spinner provides two distinct advantages over dry applications. Pre-wetting salt “activates” the material to accelerate melting. Pre-wet granules also bounce less when hitting the pavement for greater control and less waste. Studies have proven pre-wetting salt allows you to reduce salt application rates by 20-30%.
The pre-wet system poly tanks are sold in sets of 25- or 50-gallon pairs. The tanks are cross-connected to maintain equal distribution of the liquid across the driver and passenger sides of the vehicle.
Available in 50 gallon (two 25-gallon tanks) or 100 gallon (two 50-gallon tanks) kits.
Available in 50 gallon (two 25-gallon tanks) kits.
Note: Additional tank kits are not compatible with a vibrator.
EASY-TO-ACCESS FILL CAP
An easily accessible cap allows for quick filling. Translucent tanks allow operators to see when liquid is running low, and molded-in volume marks show fill levels.
The updated FLEET FLEX electric hopper spreader control for the Striker™ and Tornado™ hopper spreaders includes a pre-wet accessory button which provides simple on/off* operation, allowing the operator to choose when to apply brine while spreading.
For operators who want additional flow control from inside the cab, a separate in-cab, full-featured control option is available, featuring a flow-control dial and warning lights that alert the operator of a clog or if the tanks are empty.
*On Striker gas and hydraulic models, the on/off switch is incorporated into the master accessory harness control panel.
** Image above shows full-featured, variable speed control with empty tank and clog indicator.
The pre-wet system is supported by two different pump systems.
When using the simple on/off control, the flow rate in the pump is set manually using the needle valve. Activation is controlled with an on/off switch in the cab.
When using the full-feature control, the manual, single-needle valve is replaced with two pressure sensors, a high and a low, to detect a clog or empty tank.
CORROSION-RESISTANT PUMP HOUSING
A corrosion-resistant, fully enclosed housing protects the pump, electronics and valves from the elements.
QUICK DISCONNECT COUPLER
Easily remove the chute and spray bar with the durable, quick-disconnect coupler.
*Available on Striker™ hopper spreader models, only.
EASY-TO-MAINTAIN SPRAY BAR
On Striker™ hopper spreader models, the spray bar is located inside the chute, reducing the likelihood of a clog and making it easier to clean.
Compatible with all Striker™ hopper spreader models and Tornado™ hopper spreaders manufactured between 2009 and January 2016 with the purchase of an additional adapter kit or manufactured in February 2016 or later.
Built to give you more control at your fingertips, the pre-wet system is designed with FLEET FLEX technology for easy interchange between electric hopper spreaders.
