Western Makes BIG Changes to the Western Tornado Poly Hopper Spreaders
- New Enhanced dual-variable speed control as well as enclosed accessory hub
- FLEET FLEX Wiring system enables seamless interchange between electric hopper spreaders
- Overall improved performance in the Tornado Poly Hopper Spreader family
Western snow removal and ice control equipment has recently announced product updates to its Tornado Poly Hopper Spreader lineup. Included in the new features are: enhanced dual variable-speed control, a convenient accessory hub and the Fleet Flex electrical system.
The enhanced dual variable-speed control feature allows operators to precisely match material delivery and spread patterns to conditions. Four standard accessory buttons and a dedicated blast button provide optimum in-cab efficiency, and a user-friendly LED display alerts the operator when the hopper is empty or needs adjustments. Its compact size easily fits into the cab of most trucks.
Also offering added convenience to operators is an enclosed accessory hub for easy plug-n-play accessory integration, and convenient dump and work light buttons located at the rear of the hopper. The work light button is essential for operating in dark conditions, and the addition of the dump button facilitates speed and ease with emptying the hopper.
The updated Tornado now features FLEET FLEX technology, a universal wiring and controls system that gives operators the added advantage of quick and easy interchanges between electric hopper spreaders.
“These new product features improve the efficiency and control of the Tornado hopper spreaders to help operators get more jobs done faster,” said Doug Clark, Product Manager for Western Products.
