FIsher POLY-CASTER Spreader
FISHER’s second generation POLY-CASTER Electric Hopper Spreader effectively spreads all ice control materials, including salt, sand and calcium chloride. Your FISHER POLY-CASTER Spreader is rugged, hard working and the best in the business. Now, you can optimize your spreading performance with these genuine, tough FISHER accessories: a work light kit provides better visibility to the rear of the spreader, while a license plate light kit illuminates the alternate license plate location molded into the chute housing. The FISHER POLY-CASTER Spreader is rust resistant, trouble free and loaded with great performance and convenience-enhancing features. And, since it’s built by FISHER, it’s backed by a 60 plus year heritage of top product performance and unmatched customer loyalty.
One-Piece Poly Hopper
The POLY-CASTER Spreader is available in three sizes, 1.5, 1.8 and 2.5 cubic yards, and the thick double-walled polyethylene hopper body, with a stainless steel bottom sill, makes corrosion a thing of the past. Plus, the top screen is standard.
Two-Piece Poly Hopper Cover
The two-piece poly hopper cover shields deicing material from the elements. The POLY-CASTER Spreader’s overlapping hopper design seals out moisture while molded water grooves direct runoff away from the hopper. Its domed shape increases hopper capacity. When opened, the covers form a spill guard to keep overflow material out of your truck. The top screens are standard.
