    I was given a OLD Fisher Stainless Salt Spreader by a friend,he found it in a scrap pile he cleaned up. It has Fisher Stickers all over it but no model number. The motor is mounted inside with white/green/black wires.
    It looks just like the Western Spreader pictured on page 59 in the Central Parts Warehouse catalog. Are these just rebadged --> Fisher?
    It's bolted into a heavy angle iron cage that's painted orange.
    Think the Western Parts are interchangable? The motor works,but no controller with it. I need to figure out a value for a rheostat and make a controller.

    Monroe Truck Equipment makes spreaders for Boss. I am sure there is a lot more of that going on than most of us know about.
