Western Low Profile Tailgate Spreader Wireless Controllers EXCLUSIVE from SNOWPLOWSPLUS

With SnowplowsPlus you get the option to have one of our one of a kind wireless controllers installed on your spreader before purchase. Our wireless system is installed on your existing tailgate salt spreader and then either wired into a 7 prong plug which then plugs directly into your existing truck plug (works on 95% of vehicle models, otherwise simply run positive and negative) and enjoy up to 100 feet of wireless power in the palm of your hand.

Functionality such as burst, variable speeds and power on and off comes on every remote. No more drilling into your truck cab or having bulky controllers bouncing around the truck.  Comes with a 1 year warranty and we stand by them!
