Meyer Blaster


More Power, Greater Reliability
A funny thing happens to equipment with moving parts in cold, icy, snowy weather. It slows down, breaks down, or in some way, lets you down. Take for instance stubborn chunks of fused rock salt or debris that jam the drive system of most tailgate spreaders. That’s one jam session that won’t happen with Meyer® Blaster™ spreaders because Blasters have the most powerful spreader motor available. The Blaster’s unique ½ horsepower, direct-drive motor is rated at up to 70 amps of surge power and 15 ft. lbs. of stall-torque to grind through those annoying chunks of salt or sand. And the direct-drive system applies the torque directly to the auger.

Sand spreading accessory kit
Need To Do A Little Sand Blasting?
The Blaster 350 is available in a 6.5 cu. ft. capacity, and the Blaster 750 features a 12.8 cu. ft. capacity.  Both spreaders can distribute #1 free-flowing rock salt over ice and snow. But if you need to throw sand, you will need the “S” versions. If you want to add sand-spreading capabilities to a standard 350 or 750, you can also purchase a Vibrator Kit that converts a basic Blaster into an "S" model (see accessory section for details.)



One-touch Auto Control
One-touch operation provides you total control over Blaster spreaders.  The illuminated in-cab controller (patent-pending) includes buttons for the on/off switch, the "blast" mode which provides an on-command 70 amp surge, and a "vibrate" mode.  You can also regulate the spinner speed with the variable speed controller.
Selecting the Auto Spinner Stop Mode will automatically stop the spinner from spinning when the truck's brakes are applied for more than five seconds.  The Auto Vibrate Mode  automatically vibrates the spreader for ten seconds every sixty (60) seconds to keep your load agitated and ready to spread.

Blaster Reliability

Solid As A ROC
Originally used for military purposes, the Blaster’s1/2-horsepower motor is explosion proof… which means its thick steel protects the inner workings from all--and we mean all--outside elements. And if that’s not heavy-duty enough, the Blaster’s direct-drive system links the motor directly to the auger, creating up to 75% more auger power than non-direct drive set-ups. And don’t forget the motor shaft is made of stainless steel and is press-fitted with double ball bearings (all good stuff).

But the motor is not the only thing about Blasters that’s tough as nails. The hoppers are made of rust-proof, high-density polyurethane…the hopper frames are powder coated with automotive style paint…the nine-inch spinners are made of stainless steel…and the electrical harnesses include watertight, marine-style connections. Plus, you can purchase optional motor guards that double as storage stands in the off season.

Marine style plug keeps power to the unit in all conditions
Marine-style Electrical Plug
Blaster’s 1/2HP Motor provides superior operating performance, however, its marine-style electrical plug keeps the water out and ensures consistent electrical flow from the vehicle’s battery to the motor. Dielectric grease is recommended for all electrical connections.

Heavy-duty lid locking straps keep moisture out
Lid Locking Straps
We know tailgate/receiver hitch spreaders operate in one of the most severe environments on earth.  In order to keep your spreading materials protected from the harsh elements we include heavy-duty locking straps on each side of the hopper cover to keep moisture out.  Nothing impedes spreader performance in the hopper more than wet material.  The locking straps keep the lid on the hopper at all speeds thus improving your spreading performance.                                     


Industry's Best Warranty Protection
We’re so confident of the quality built into every Blaster, we back them with the best warranty in the industry. The competition offers a one-year warranty, while Blasters are backed with a full five years on all structural steel and hopper (you must register your new Blaster at to activate extended warranty).

Flow Gate Control

Flow Gate Control
The Meyer Flow Gate control system allows the end-user to set the material flow rate based on the material being used.  The unit is made of 100% aluminum and will not rust, is lightweight and extremely easy to install.  The unit clamps to the throat of the spreader.  Simply clamp the Flow Gate unit onto the discharge throat of the unit, tighten the clamping screws, and the flow gate teeth bite into the discharge throat securing the control to the spreader.  Salt is very expensive, and the flow gate control maximizes material discharge eliminating waste.

Spreader Controller
The Meyer Spreader Controller (patent-pending) is the most reliable and convenient controller on the market. This lightweight and compact unit comes standard with many easy-to-use, performance-enhancing features such as:
  • Auto Spinner Stop Mode - if selected, when the brake is depressed for five seconds, the spinner automatically stops, thus saving your precious salt.
  • Auto Vibrate Mode - if selected, the vibrator will automatically activate for 10 seconds every 60 seconds; this keeps the material agitated and ready for application.
The unit also boasts convenient features such as back-lit controls for visual clarity at night, and a variable-speed dial that easily controls spinner speed. When it comes to serviceability, this controller is two steps ahead of the competition. The Controller also monitors the motor performance, if the controller senses that the motor is not operating it automatically shuts down the system allowing the operator to inspect the system. In anticipation of unwanted amp surges, the unit comes standard with easy-to-replace automotive-type fuses. The Meyer Controller requires minimal installation and comes with all mounting hardware and instructions for easy installation.
