Meyer Products recently introduced its newest line of insert spreaders for utility vehicles, mid-sized pickups, and cab and chassis trucks.
The Elite series of insert spreaders, which are designed to reduce maintenance and increase productivity, also are safer, easier to use and reliable as ever, the company said.
Meyer Elite spreaders are designed to be lighter, stronger and more stable, with fewer parts needing maintenance, allowing for more time on the job and less on adjusting and cleaning. The use of maintenance-free materials also means the spreaders are lighter and more resistant to harsh weather and chemicals, the company said.
New design features include:
- The addition of a tensioner to the drive chain eliminates frequent stops for adjustments.
- New sectional top screens are easier to lift and remove.
- The spinner chute has a spring-loaded shaft connector that keeps the spinner engaged.
- Formed handles and spring pins make the assembly easy to attach or remove in seconds.
From the front of the hopper, to the spinner and chute assemblies, Elite spreaders are designed to provide superior spreading performance. The no-maintenance, redesigned hopper is lighter, stronger and more stable. Conveyer options include drag chain or belt-over-chain that delivers a consistent output of material, while not leaking into the hopper.
A new, lighter poly spinner makes attaching and detaching easier across the Elite line, the company said, and the wireless controller remotely allows the gas engine speed to throttle up, down and choke as well as turn on and off.
Elite spreaders are CE certified. Safety features include a material top screen, enclosure for front bearing, drive chain guard, integrated fork-lift pockets, a work light, brake light and poly engine shroud with integrated gas springs.
Featuring Meyer’s 10-year warranty on the poly idler, the seven Elite models include the Elite 3-foot and 4-foot for utility vehicles, Elite 6-foot and 8-foot stainless steel and 8-foot carbon steel for mid-sized pickup trucks, and the Elite 8-foot HC and 10-foot HC for cab & chassis trucks that weight 2 tons and larger.
Various motor options like Honda or Briggs & Stratton gas, 12-volt dual-motor electric or hydraulic are available on many models.
