    Three New FISHER® Tailgate Spreaders Revealed​

    • Fisher Engineering releases FISHER® SPEED-CASTER™ 900 and SPEED-CASTER™ 525 tailgate spreaders
    • QUICK-CASTER™ 300W wireless electric tailgate spreader also unveiled
    • New products will be available for 2015-16 snow removal season

    ROCKLAND, Maine (March 10, 2015) — Fisher Engineering announces the addition of three new tailgate spreader models to its full line of ice control equipment. The FISHER® SPEED-CASTER™ 900 and SPEED-CASTER™ 525 tailgate spreaders, and QUICK-CASTER™ 300W wireless electric tailgate spreader, join the lineup for the 2015-16 snow removal season. The spreaders will be integrated into the product line alongside the brand's existing Low Profile 2500, 1000 and 500 tailgate spreaders.

    The newly designed SPEED-CASTER 900 (9 cu. ft.) and SPEED-CASTER 525 (5.25 cu. ft.) tailgate spreaders are each powered by two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors, which power the heavy-duty auger delivery systems and spinner assemblies. The SPEED-CASTER 900 model holds up to 720 lb. of bagged or bulk de-icing material and is available with optional 2" receiver hitch, 3-point hitch and pivot/GM pivot mounts. The SPEED-CASTER 525 model holds up to 420 lb. of de-icing material and comes standard with combination 2" and 3-point hitch mounts.

    Both the SPEED-CASTER 900 and SPEED-CASTER 525 spreader models feature a new enhanced dual variable-speed control that allows operators to match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. The LED control features three standard accessory buttons, a dedicated blast button and easy-to-understand digital self-diagnostics that alert the operator when the spreader is empty or adjustments are needed.

    The QUICK-CASTER 300W “plug ‘n’ play” wireless electric tailgate spreader comes standard with a 2" receiver hitch and 7-pin plug, making it easy to install on many vehicles without drilling or wiring. The wireless one-touch, on/off key fob control provides convenience and offers two spinner speeds to match spread patterns to the application. A wide variety of mounts are available, so the QUICK-CASTER 300W spreader can fit on many vehicles, including pickup trucks, SUVs, UTVs and tractors.

    A fully enclosed 12-volt motor and maximum torque transmission power the QUICK-CASTER spreader's 10" corrosion-free spinner. The hopper holds up to 3 cu. ft. of rock salt and a clear weather cover is available as an accessory.

    Information on the new spreader offerings will be available in the online FISHER Spreader Showroom in April 2015.
