Sealed Dual Electric Motors
Two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors provide quiet, reliable and independent control over the conveyor and spinner mechanisms. The spinner motor is sealed inside a weather-resistant housing, protecting it from corrosion. (Gas and hydraulic options also available)
Enhanced dual variable-speed control allows you to precisely match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. Four standard accessory buttons and a dedicated blast button provide optimum in-cab efficiency. Easy-to-understand, digital self-diagnostics alert the operator when the hopper is empty or when adjustments are needed, and LEDs make the control easy to read. Its compact size compared to traditional controls fits easily into today’s modern truck cab designs.*Feature available on dual electric motor models only.
Two Gas Powered Options
The Striker™ stainless steel hopper spreader is available in two low-maintenance, gas-powered motor options. Choose either the 10.5 HP I/C Briggs & Stratton® motor (shown) or the 11 HP I/C Honda® motor.
Hydraulic Powered Option
With the most available power, the WESTERN® Striker™ stainless steel hopper spreader’s hydraulic powered motor option offers dual variable speed control and reliable operation.
One of the widest in the industry, the 16½” conveyor moves more material consistently and smoothly to help reduce bridging.
Conveniently connect accessories directly into the hub mounted in the back of the hopper, without having to run additional wires from the front of the truck. *Feature available on dual electric motor models only.
Dual Swing Chute Design
The dual swing chute design swings open from either side to provide easy access for maintenance or material unloading. A dump button*, conveniently located at the back of the hopper, runs the conveyor for easy clean out.*Feature available on dual electric motor models only.
Convenient Dump & Work Light Buttons*
The Striker™ stainless steel hopper spreader is designed for convenience. Located at the rear of the hopper are two dump buttons that run the conveyor for easily unloading excess material or quickly filling a walk-behind or tailgate spreader. A work light button lights the area at the rear of the spreader for better visibility when operating the dump buttons or working at the back of the hopper.*Feature available on dual electric motor models only.
Adjustable Drop Chute
An adjustable drop chute accommodates pickup truck and flatbed applications, ensuring the assembly is always at the optimum spreading height. The chute extension is standard on 9’ and 10’ models, and available as an option on 7’ and 8’ models.
Adjustable Feed Gate
The Striker™ stainless steel hopper spreader features an adjustable feed gate to further control the amount of material flowing from the hopper to the spinner. This feature is especially useful for users who choose gas-powered models.
Stainless Steel Construction with Wrap-Around Welded Joints
Built with low-maintenance, rust resistant stainless steel, the hopper is reinforced with wrap-around welded joints for long-life protection against stress.
A standard inverted V located inside the hopper helps break up clumps to ensure the smooth flow of material. An optional vibrator kit is available to help reduce bridging and keep material running smoothly.
A standard steel top screen helps break up large chunks of de-icing material during the loading process to help prevent clogging and bridging during spreader operation.
The Striker™ Stainless Steel Hopper Spreader comes standard with ratchet straps for secure tie-down.
