Get winter storm cleanup in North Franklin done with one of the WESTERN® Low Profile tailgate spreaders. These tailgate spreaders are constructed of high density polyethylene and designed for convenience and performance without affecting the operator’s view from behind the wheel. Model 500 fits vehicles with Class lll hitch and models 1000 and 2500 fit full size trucks over 6,000 lb GVWR.
A latching, molded polyethylene lid protects de-icing material from the elements.
A fully enclosed 12-volt electric, 1/3 HP motor is mounted inside a sealed housing, protecting it from corrosion.
Choose between a variable speed control with an "on/off" button and blast option to optimize material usage or a basic "on/off" toggle control (controls are sold separately).
The low profile tailgate spreaders feature corrosion-free polyethylene hoppers for long-lasting durability.
Material is delivered by a powder coated, vertical steel auger to provide long-lasting, reliable performance.
Models 500 and 1000 both feature a durable 10" polyurethane spinner that delivers a spread pattern of up to 30'. Model 2500 comes standard with a large, 15" polyurethane spinner that delivers a spread pattern of up to 30'.
On Model 2500, a specialized "saw tooth" feed gate and auger design combine to deliver complete, reliable flow control with positive shut-off, eliminating spillage and waste.
The Model 500 tailgate spreader comes standard with a Class III receiver hitch mount. The Model 1000 tailgate spreader requires the additional purchase of one of the available mount options: a Class IV receiver hitch mount, a fixed bumper mounting system, or the SWING AWAY® mount. The Model 2500 tailgate spreader comes standard with a Class IV receiver hitch mount.
Optional on all three models, a coated 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.
Add additional spreader stability to your vehicle with standard nylon tie-down ratchet straps.
