The new 0.7 cu yd hopper spreader is designed specifically for half-ton and light-duty trucks that handle smaller spaces and jobs.

The new 0.35 cu yd hopper spreader is designed to be the right size for UTVs and short bed trucks to quickly clear walkways and driveways.

The new hopper spreaders are purpose-built for half-ton truck and UTV applications

ROCKLAND, Maine (March 4, 2020) – Fisher Engineering, manufacturer of FISHER® snow removal and ice control equipment, introduced the all-new STEEL-CASTER™ 0.7 cu yd stainless steel hopper spreader at the 2020 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. This new spreader joins the STEEL-CASTER line by providing high-performance ice control capabilities specifically for half-ton and light-duty trucks.

In addition, FISHER has also unveiled the STEEL-CASTER 0.35 cu yd stainless steel hopper spreader, specifically for UTV and compact truck applications. It offers a high-quality, riveted construction and includes many of the same features of FISHER’s larger STEEL-CASTER hopper spreaders.

“Not all jobs are created equal, but they all need high-performance equipment,” said Tyler Jones, product manager for Fisher Engineering. “We designed these new STEEL-CASTER hopper spreaders precisely for half-ton and light-duty trucks, as well as UTVs and compact trucks, so more vehicles in a customer’s fleet can get in on the ice control game.”

Both new STEEL-CASTER hopper spreaders feature dual variable-speed control for precise control of material delivery and a flip-up chute for easy hitch access and clean-out. The lightweight, stainless steel, riveted construction provides durability without taking an excess toll on the vehicle.

The STEEL-CASTER 0.7 cu yd stainless steel hopper spreader offers a 54” long hopper with a 15 ½” pintle chain and up to 30 feet of spreading width. Meanwhile, the 0.35 cu yd stainless steel hopper spreader has a 30” long hopper with an 11 ½” pintle chain and delivers a spreading width of up to 30 feet.

Users have the option to add a pre-wet and direct liquid application kit accessory to the larger STEEL- CASTER 0.7 cu yd model. With the addition of this accessory, the spreader can also be used to pre-wet materials or spray brine directly onto the driving surface for anti-icing applications. The accessory kit includes two 25-gallon pre-wet tanks, a pump and a spray kit.

Additional accessories include:

  • Extension collars to increase the material capacity
  • Spill guard kit
  • LED work light kit
  • LED strobe light kit
  • Central point grease kit
  • Vibrator kit
  • Inverted V kit
  • Ratchet tie-down kit
