Key Highlights

Fisher Engineering has revealed its new line of TEMPEST™ stainless steel hopper spreaders.

Customers can choose between the all-new HELIXX™ shaftless auger delivery system or the pintle chain delivery system.

Corrosion-resistant stainless steel construction comes in multiple sizes, with capacities ranging from 0.35 cu yd to 5.0 cu yd.

Sleek, stainless-steel design with choice of material delivery system for any application

Fisher Engineering, a leading manufacturer of snow and ice control equipment, showcased its newest line of hopper spreaders to dealers in early March at the 2023 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The TEMPEST™ can effectively dispense salt, sand, or a salt/sand mix to safely maintain roads and

surfaces. Durable and sleek, the TEMPEST hopper spreaders are constructed with riveted, corrosion-resistant stainless steel. An optimized hopper end cap angle moves more material through to the material delivery system for a consistent spread. Fleet owners now have the option of a pintle chain delivery system for thick, heavy de-icing materials or the all-new HELIXX™ shaftless auger for precise rock salt application.

TEMPEST hopper spreaders will be available in the following capacities: 0.35 cu yd, 0.7 cu yd, 1.5 cu yd, 2.2 cu yd, 3.0 cu yd. 4.0 cu yd, and 5.0 cu yd.

  • 0.35 cu yd units are optimized for UTV applications.
  • 0.7 cu yd units are versatile, allowing use on large UTVs or pickup trucks.
  • 1.5 cu yd through the 5.0 cu yd units are made for trucks from half-ton through large work trucks and flatbeds.

“We are now able to provide a FISHER® stainless steel hopper spreader for any application a contractor can come across,” said Pedar Steinquist, FISHER Ice Control Product Manager. “At Fisher Engineering, we strive to provide equipment that ensures safety and efficiency for our equipment users, and the TEMPEST is another great example of that promise.”

The TEMPEST line also features an extended-chute design that provides positive material flow while preventing any leakage during transport. When equipped with the optional pre-wet system, the extended chute provides a chamber where the pre-wet liquid treats the rock salt for quick activation. The pre-wet system also provides direct liquid treatment as well. The chain delivery system models feature an all-new material spill-protector flap to safeguard against deicing material spillage near the vehicle cab.
