Truck Tailgate

Speed. Control. Versatility.

Delivering speed, control and versatility, the FISHER® SPEED-CASTER 525 and SPEED-CASTER 900 poly tailgate spreaders are true triple threats. These spreaders offer a two-stage, auger-fed delivery system with independent control of material flow and spread pattern, so you can deliver exactly the right de-icing material exactly where you want it. And the best part? You don’t have to sacrifice any cargo space to do it.

Unique features

Previous Next


A latching, molded poly lid protects material from the elements.

Dual Electric Motors

The two high-torque 12-volt electric motors provide quiet, reliable, independent control over the auger 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. Three 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

SPEED-CASTER 525 and SPEED-CASTER 900 tailgate spreaders feature corrosion-free poly hoppers for long-lasting durability.

Previous Next

Material Delivery

Material is delivered by a heavy-duty steel auger to provide long-lasting, reliable performance.

If an obstruction occurs, the transverse auger system will reduce downtime by automatically reversing until the obstruction is cleared and then normal operation will resume.

Previous Next


The SPEED-CASTER 525 tailgate spreader features a 10" spinner made of nylon/glass reinforced resin, and delivers a spread pattern of up to 30'.

The SPEED-CASTER 900 tailgate spreader features a 12" steel spinner (shown above) and delivers a spread pattern of up to 40'.

Accessory Integration

Conveniently connect accessories directly into the spreader module mounted in the spinner motor enclosure. Accessories automatically integrate with the tailgate control without having to run additional wires from the front of the truck.

Previous Next

Inverted V / Vibrator

An inverted V comes standard and helps keep sufficient material weight off of the auger, ensuring smooth startup and flow of material. It is directly connected to the vibrator to help reduce bridging and keep material moving to the auger.

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.

Mounting Options

The SPEED-CASTER 525 tailgate spreader comes standard with a combination 2" receiver hitch and 3-point tractor mount for use on multiple vehicle types.

The SPEED-CASTER 900 tailgate spreader* requires the additional purchase of one of the available mount options: a pivot mount, a 2" receiver hitch mount (requires additional adapter), or a 3-point hitch mount.

*Mounts sold separately.



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.


Prevent leaking issues when using fine pellet, flake or other ice melt products. The material control tube is a sleeve that is designed to ensure that expensive ice melt materials are securely contained and cannot leak out as you drive down the road.


Keep your UTV spreader control protected from the elements with the UTV Spreader Control Shield. A molded, plastic “visor” attaches to the top of the UTV spreader control to protect it from the rain or snow.


The Control Cup Holder Mount is designed to fit firmly in most vehicle cup holders (plow control featured in image). It's a genuine, factory-tough accessory specifically engineered to securely hold FISHER® hand-held or joystick controls and all types of smart phone devices (not included with mount). This flexible gooseneck mount has a 360-degree rotation and ensures optimal, customizable positioning.
