Meyer PV


In snow and ice control, time is money. So go with the industry leader in pickup truck spreaders…Meyer. Meyer’s versatile line of insert hopper spreaders fit most ¾- to 1-ton pick-up trucks and share many of the same time-saving, long-lasting features of our larger MDV series spreaders. Meyer PVs are available in seven- and eight-foot lengths, and have 1.8 and 2.0 cubic yard capacities.

Spread It Where You Want It
Getting the material in the right place the first time is critical. With Meyer’s two internal and four external baffle adjustment systems, you will place the material in the right place, every time. Whether you want to spread four feet to the left, four feet to the right, or spread a thirty foot pattern, you can easily adjust the spreading pattern to meet your unique demands. In addition, Meyer spreaders are engineered to handle virtually any material you can throw at it including salt, sand, and salt/sand mix; and perform in harsh, snowy environments.

When You're On A Roll, Stay On A Roll
High performance in virtually any condition is not optional, so Meyer includes many performance-enhancing components as STANDARD. No matter how heavy the snow falls or how quickly the roads ice, Meyer will reliably perform. Our drop n loc top screens break-up large clumps of material which can cause damage to the drag chain and reduce performance. In addition, we include bolt-in chain shields as standard to prevent material from building up in the drag chain and slowing you down. Finally, we offer as standard, our inverted-V which helps prevent material from bridging and slowing down the conveyor.

PV Reliability

Who has time for downtime?
Your spreader needs to be up and running so that when the weather calls, you can answer. At Meyer, we build reliability into our products. Some of the key built-to-last features of our PV line includes:

Slot & Tab Construction is a stronger and more precise way to fit steel together. It delivers greater reliability over the course of ownership.
The highest tensile strength drag chain in the industry for consistently pulling all types of materials through the spreader
Continuous welding on the inside of the hopper spreaders prevents material from pitting and leading to premature rusting.
Powder Coated paint for greater durability over the life of your spreader
Grease Zerks at all critical points for keeping your investment up and running
Marine-grade actuator protects the spreader's inner workings from the elements and keeps you working even in the harshest conditions (applies to gas models only).
Stainless steel external baffle adjustment rods prevent the baffles from seizing and remaining stuck in one location.
Largest-in-the-industry 13-inch spinner disc with 1-inch shaft, spreads material from four feet to forty feet.

Liquid Pre-Wet System
Liquid Pre-Wet System
Want to decrease your salt consumption and reduce the amount of time it takes for the salt to melt the ice and snow on the road? Studies show that by pre-wetting salt prior to spreading can reduce salt consumption by 20 to 30% and reduce the time to achieve bare pavement from 20 hours to 2 hours. Our fully integrated pre-wetting system includes two fifteen-gallon tanks (one for each side of the spreader) and the mounting brackets to install the pre-wet system. Included in the system is cab-mounted variable speed controller for adjusting the output of the liquid. Two variable orifice rubber nozzles are provided to evenly treat granular material as it falls onto the spinner disc.
