Western Products announced earlier this year the addition of three new tailgate spreader models to its ice control equipment lineup: the WESTERN® PRO-FLO™ 900 and PRO-FLO™ 525 tailgate spreaders and the LOW-PRO 300W wireless electric tailgate spreader.
The PRO-FLO 900 (9 cu. ft.) and the PRO-FLO 525 (5.25 cu. ft.) tailgate spreaders have a corrosion-free poly hopper for long-lasting, de-icing performance. Two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors power the heavy-duty auger delivery systems and spinner assemblies. Both the PRO-FLO 900 and PRO-FLO 525 spreader models include a new enhanced dual variable-speed control that allows operators to match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. The LED control features three standard accessory buttons, a dedicated blast button and easy-to-understand digital self-diagnostics that alert the operator when the spreader is empty or adjustments are needed.
The PRO-FLO 900 holds up to 720 lbs. of bagged or bulk de-icing material and is available with optional 2” receiver hitch, 3-point hitch and pivot/GM pivot mounts. The PRO-FLO 525 holds up to 420 lbs. of material and comes standard with combination 2” and 3-point hitch mounts.
Delivering the ultimate in wireless convenience, the LOW-PRO 300W “plug ‘n’ play” wireless electric tailgate spreader comes standard with a 2” receiver hitch and 7-pin plug, making it easy to install on many vehicles without drilling or wiring. The wireless one-touch, on/off key fob control provides convenience and offers two spinner speeds to match spread patterns to the application. A wide variety of mounts are available.
A fully enclosed 12-volt motor and maximum torque transmission power the LOW-PRO spreader’s 10” corrosion-free spinner. The hopper holds up to 3 cu. ft. of rock salt and a clear weather cover is available as an accessory.
