    WESTERN® Tornado™ UTV Hopper Spreader Introduced​


    • Western Products launches Tornado UTV hopper spreader
    • Designed specifically for UTVs, but delivers many features of larger models
    • The new spreader features a multi-angled hopper, quick-connect spinner assembly, transverse auger delivery system and dual variable-speed control

    MILWAUKEE (March 3, 2016) — Western Products, manufacturer of WESTERN snow removal and ice control equipment, announces the release of its new Tornado UTV hopper spreader. The 11 cu ft poly hopper spreader has been designed specifically for UTVs, and offers many of the features of the larger models.

    Unique features of the Tornado UTV hopper spreader include:

    Multi-Angled Hopper: Designed to create a funnel, which provides maximum flow from the top of the hopper to the auger and helps prevent bridging and clogging.
    Transverse Auger Delivery System: Automatically backs in and out until an obstruction is cleared or a required adjustment has been made.
    Quick-Connect Spinner Assembly: The easily removable quick-connect spinner assembly provides convenient access to the vehicle's hitch.
    Dual Variable-Speed Control: Allows operators to individually control the two 12-volt electric motors to precisely match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions.

    In addition, the Tornado UTV spreader is built with a standard inverted vibrating V for maximum material agitation, a standard top screen to help break up large chunks of de-icing material while loading, a heavy duty steel frame with electrostatic powder-coated finish, and a fitted tarp cover that helps ice control material stay dry to prevent clumping.

    More information about the WESTERN Tornado UTV poly hopper spreader will be available in the online WESTERN Spreader Showroom in May 2016.
