Unique features

The overlapping poly hopper covers shield de-icing material from the elements. Its design seals out moisture, while molded grooves direct water away from the hopper, and its domed shape increases hopper capacity.

In the open position, the covers act as spill guards and protect the truck from material overflow while loading.

Dual Electric Motors

The two high-torque 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.

Previous Next


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 spreader 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.

Corrosion-Resistant Hopper

The proven double-walled hopper is built of durable poly for corrosion-free performance, whether using rock salt, calcium chloride, sand or any other type of de-icing material.

Previous Next

Material Delivery

One of the widest in the industry, the 15 ½" pintle chain conveyor moves more material consistently and smoothly to help reduce bridging. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel guides provides extra protection and durability.

Previous Next


An extra large 15 ½" polyurethane spinner delivers a spread pattern of up to 40' and provides long-lasting, corrosion-free operation.

Previous Next

Accessory Integration

Conveniently connect accessories directly into the hub mounted in the back of the hopper. Accessories automatically integrate with the hopper control without having to run additional wires from the front of the truck.

Previous Next

Dump & Work Light Switches

Operators can safely offload material or fill walk-behind spreaders by using the rear-mounted conveyor dump switches. An additional switch is provided so an accessory work light may be conveniently controlled from not only the cab, but also the rear of the hopper.

Previous Next

Chute Assembly

For precise material application, the adjustable-height chute assembly can be configured for either pickup truck or flat bed and dump body applications, ensuring you're always spreading at the optimum height.

For convenient access to the hitch or material off load, the chute assembly can be removed - no tools required.

Previous Next

Adjustable Feed Gate

An adjustable feed gate provides additional control of material flow, regardless of material type, reducing waste when traveling between sites.

Previous Next

Inverted V / Vibrator

An inverted V is available as an accessory to help keep sufficient material weight off of the conveyor, ensuring smooth startup and flow of material.

A vibrator kit is also available as an accessory to help reduce bridging and keep material moving smoothly to the conveyor.

Previous Next

Top Screen

A steel top screen comes standard, which helps break up large chunks of de-icing material during the loading process to prevent clogging and bridging during spreader operation.

Previous Next

Ratchet Straps

Ratchet straps are available as an accessory for additional spreader stability.

Previous Next

Convenient Storage

The POLY-CASTER hopper spreader slides easily in and out of the vehicle. The entire unit stands on end to minimize the space needed for storage.

Previous Next

Additional Standard Features

Molded handles and built-in tie-down loops are included for strapping the hopper to the truck. For additional safety, bolting bars are also provided to attach the hopper to the vehicle and a Center High-Mounted Stop Light (CHMSL) is standard.

The POLY-CASTER hopper spreader is designed with FLEET FLEX technology for easy interchangeability between electric hopper spreaders without having to change the wiring or the controls.

It provides easy operation, increased reliability, simple wiring and easy installation. Additionally, accessories automatically integrate into the control for easy plug and play.



The pre-wet system accessory allows the operator to activate deicing material by applying a liquid deicing agent directly on the material prior to leaving the hopper, providing you with increased material efficiency and superior ice control.



The Central Point Grease Kit provides easy access to grease points, simplifying preventative maintenance greasing that is essential to maximize bearing life.


Designed to help move stubborn material and prevent bridging, a genuine FISHER® Vibrator system will ensure that less-than-ideal material, which is prone to bridging and clogging, will not hold you up when you need to be on the move.


Stay legal with our quality illuminated License Plate Kit. This genuine FISHER® license plate kit has been specifically designed for your hopper and allows you to move your license plate to a spot that is visible and legally compliant.


Make sure you're seen, day or night, with our complete hopper Strobe Light system. Constructed from high impact plastic, and rated beyond -20º F, this yellow LED strobe system has been designed to last and will ensure that you're seen in even the worst of conditions.


A genuine FISHER® Work Light system will grant you increased visibility at the rear of your spreader. Encased in anodized aluminum, and rated beyond -20º F, this LED Work Light system projects over 1000 lumens to help you monitor material distribution and illuminate potential hazards while backing up.


Take it up a notch with a genuine FISHER® secondary work light kit. Designed to integrate with our work light kit (99505-1), this accessory kit will provide an addition 1000 lumens of light on the opposite side of your FISHER spreader.


This Tie-Down Kit provides additional in-bed stability and security. The 4000 pound, high-strength shipping straps allow you to add an extra measure of safety as you move tons of salt down the road. Each kit includes four ratchet tie down assemblies. (Hoppers require bolting to the truck frame for proper operator safety.)


Reduce heavy startup loads on the drive train and reduce bridging during operations with a genuine FISHER® Inverted V. Made of 12-gauge 201 stainless steel, the Inverted V is manufactured to be corrosion-resistant and stand up to the most demanding environments. The Inverted V Kit is easy to install and includes all of the necessary hardware and instructions.


The Vehicle-Side Harness Kit contains components to replace harnessing on the truck or wire a second truck to operate the spreader.


Gain the flexibility and easy installation benefits of the cup holder control mount with every spreader installation using the new Spreader Control Adapter Plate Kit. Kit contains a durable metal mounting plate and hardware. Cup Holder Mount not included, order separately (#82006).


The Control Cup Holder Mount is designed to fit firmly in most vehicle cup holders.
