    You need a karrier unit. The Karrier model 2090 with a rhino harness is the choice. We can get you one already set up for the truckcraft unit. Much more durable.

    The Omega 2090 offers the highest output current of any dual stage controller manufactured today in a compact single box design. This is an incredibly technically advanced piece of equipment and gives the user maximum material feed and spread pattern control for your two stage conveyor/ auger fed salt spreader, all electric dump insert tailgate spreader or all electric undergate spreader. We even included an auxiliary power out circuit to power lights or the dump insert (with the Omega 3100 dump insert control). Maximum nominal operating current to the spinner is 30 amps and 60 amps to the material feed motor and is fully protected by "Guardian" current management system to give your salt spreader the "Power to Perform" without ever overloading your system or burning out the controller. The Omega 2090 even drives "Hard-Start" current in a specially designed algorithm to get your spreader started every time.
