Pre-Wet System

For STEEL-CASTER™ Stainless Steel and POLY-CASTER™ Poly Hopper Spreaders

Use less salt and accelerate melting

The new FISHER® pre-wet system accessory allows the operator to pre-wet material with a brine solution just before it hits the spinner. This provides two distinct advantages over dry application. Pre-wetting salt begins a chemical reaction in the salt, which accelerates melting. Pre-wet granules also bounce less when hitting the pavement for greater control. Studies have proven application rates can be reduced by 20-30% when pre-wetting salt with liquids. Improved material efficiency saves time and money.

Two Control Options

Existing Controls

The updated FLEET FLEX electric controls for the STEEL-CASTER and POLY-CASTER Hopper Spreaders (shown above) already include a pre-wet accessory button, providing simple on/off* operation from inside the cab. This allows the operator to choose when to apply brine while spreading. The flow rate is set manually using the valve in the pump housing.

Additional In-Cab Control Option

For operators who want additional flow control from inside the cab, a separate in-cab, full-featured control option is available, featuring a flow control dial and warning lights that alert the operator of a clog, or if the tanks are empty.

*On STEEL-CASTER gas and hydraulic models, the on/off switch is incorporated into the master accessory harness control panel.

More Control at your fingertips

Now built to give you more control at your fingertips, the pre-wet system is designed with FLEET FLEX technology for easy interchange between electric hopper spreaders.
