Baseline 240/400 Performance

PERFORMANCE

Compact Spreaders for Light Vehicles
Meyer Base Line tailgate spreaders offer contractors economical ice control. The BL-240 is available in a 3.7 cu. ft. capacity, and the BL-400 is available in a 6.3 cu. ft. capacity. Both are easy-to-use and perfect for small- to medium-sized jobs like icy walkways and long, snowy driveways.
Both the BL-240 and the BL-400 easily attach to any vehicle with a 2-inch receiver hitch and are especially appropriate for SUVs, light pick-up trucks, tractors and utility vehicles.  An integrated motor guard protects the 1/8 h.p. electric motor and serves as a storage stand when the spreader is not in use.

Go with the Flow

The 1/8 h.p. direct drive motor applies the torque directly to the auger to grind through large chunks of material.  The auger provides an even flow of material to the spinner for complete and steady material coverage.  And to keep moisture out during snow storms, so material stays dry, both the Meyer BL-240 and BL-400 spreaders come with a lid with heavy-duty, easy-to-use locking straps.

RELIABILITY

240 Reliability

It May Be Small But It's Tough
When it comes to managing snow and ice, there is nothing more frustrating than unreliable equipment. That's why we make the Meyer BL-240 & 400 reliable and affordable and back them with a two-year warranty.
 
Direct-drive Motor
The BL-240/400's direct-drive system links the 1/8 h.p. motor directly to the auger, creating up to 75% more auger power than non-direct drive set-ups. The motor provides superior clump-busting performance, and its marine-style electrical plug keeps the water out to ensure consistent electrical flow from the vehicle's battery.
Electric motor
In-cab Controller
With the touch of a button, the highly intuitive and reliable variable speed (fast, slow and vibrate) touch-pad controller is easy to use and delivers a precise spread-pattern of up to 25 feet.

Durable Construction
The hoppers are made of rust-proof, high-density polyurethane…the hopper frames are powder coated with automotive style paint. And in the event you back into something, the motor is protected by an integrated motor guard made of tubular steel.

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
Spreader Controller (optional)
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.
