Aspen Equipment Co., distributor of WESTERN® snow removal and ice control equipment, is pleased to offer the all-new WESTERN Striker™ stainless steel hopper spreader. The Striker hopper spreader is available in six sizes from 7' 1.5 cu. yd. to 10' 6 cu. yd. It is built with low-maintenance, rust-resistant stainless steel for protection against rust, and reinforced with wrap-around welded joints to maximize durability.

Engineered to minimize waste and enhance spreading capabilities, the Striker hopper spreader features an innovative chute design to direct de-icing material to precise points on the spinner to cast material out and away from the truck. An easy-to-adjust circular shutter deflector allows one-sided spreading operation, preventing materials from being spread to unintended areas.

Two instant-start, 12-volt electric motors provide quiet and reliable control over the 16 •" conveyor and spinner mechanisms. The spinner motor is sealed inside a weather-resistant housing that protects it from corrosion. Aspen Equipment will also carry gas and hydraulic options.

Electric models feature an enhanced, dual variable-speed control to precisely match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. Four standard accessory buttons, a dedicated “blast” button, and digital self-diagnostics alert the operator when the hopper is empty or needs adjustments.
