    Western Products Unveils Striker™ Stainless Steel Hopper Spreader at NTEA Work Truck Show​

    • Available in six sizes from 7' 1.5 cu. yd. to 10' 6 cu. yd.
    • Designed to reduce material waste and maximize material control
    • Powered by dual instant-start, 12-volt electric motors

    MILWAUKEE (March 4, 2015) — Western Products, manufacturer of WESTERN® snow removal and ice control equipment, has unveiled the all-new Striker™ stainless steel hopper spreader, at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

    WESTERN Striker Stainless Steel Hopper Spreader
    The Striker spreader is built with low-maintenance, rust-resistant stainless steel for long-life protection against rust and is reinforced with wrap-around welded joints for durability. The spreader is available in six sizes: 7' 1.5 cu. yd.; 8' 2 cu. yd.; 9' 3 cu. yd.; 9' 4.5 cu. yd.; 10' 4.5 cu. yd.; and 10' 6 cu. yd. models.

    Specifically engineered to minimize waste and enhance spreading capabilities, the Striker hopper spreader features an innovative chute design to direct de-icing material to precise points on the spinner to cast material out and away from the truck. An easy-to-adjust circular shutter deflector allows one-sided spreading operation, preventing materials from being spread to unintended areas.

    Two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors provide quiet and reliable control over the 16 ½" conveyor and spinner mechanisms. The spinner motor is sealed inside a weather-resistant housing that protects it from corrosion. Gas and hydraulic options are also available.

    Electric models feature an enhanced, dual variable-speed control to precisely match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. Four standard accessory buttons, a dedicated “blast” button, and digital self-diagnostics alert the operator when the hopper is empty or needs adjustments.
    Information on the new Striker hopper spreader will be available in the online WESTERN Spreader Showroom in April 2015.
