Dump Truck Tailgate

PERFORMANCE

Turn Your Dump Truck Into A Salt Spreader
Get a good return on your dump truck with Meyer salt spreaders. We make the very best Under Tailgate Spreaders (UTG) and Replaceable Tailgate Spreaders (RTG) available. Both use a combination of a self-contained auger with removable spinners, and can apply salt, sand or combination of both, from four to 40 feet on icy drives and snowy parking lots.

 

How To Decide What Model Salt Spreader Is Right For You.

Under Tailgate Spreader or Replaceable Tailgate Spreader
UTG or RTG?
After you decide to use your medium-duty dump truck for snow and ice management, the next thing you need to determine is how much ground clearance you have from the floor of the dump bed to the ground. If you have less than 44 inches, you need Meyer’s Replaceable Tailgate Spreader. In-season, Meyer RTGs easily replace your existing tailgates and provide adequate ground clearance for the spinner mechanism.

If you have 44 inches or more of clearance, you don’t need to replace the tailgate and should get a Meyer UTG. This unit mounts below the dump body to allow normal dump body operations when the spreader is not in use, saving time by eliminating in-season installation.

 

show??????????????????
Hydraulic or Electric?
The next decision depends on whether your vehicle has a central hydraulics system. If it does, and you wish to power the spreader off of it, you need Meyer’s hydraulic-driven UTG. The hydraulic-driven UTG can be powered using a direct drive or gearbox drive system. Direct drive provides higher performance and decreased maintenance, while gearbox drive provides better control at low spread rates for more efficient spreading.

If your vehicle does not have central hydraulics, or, you don't care to use central hydraulics to drive the spreader, you need our electric motor-driven options. Electric motors offer many ease-of-use advantages and are ideal for lighter, free-flowing materials.

 

Ours vs. Theirs
Whether you need a UTG or RTG, Meyer salt spreaders for dump trucks outperform the competition. In addition to having the widest spread pattern available, and being able to apply salt, sand or a combination of both to snowy services, Meyer dump truck spreaders offer:
  • Separate motor controls for the auger and spinner…this provides optimal application control and efficiency.
  • Adjustable spinner frames to allow customized spinner height. (hydraulic models only)
  • An 18-inch spinner disc that's 28% larger than most competitive spinner discs.
  • An anti-flow plate that prevents material from dropping through chute and directly onto the roadway.
  • A spinner stabilizer kit that keeps spinner parallel to the road, maintaining consistent spread pattern.

The Electric Advantage
Unlike other electric dump truck spreaders where the spreading pattern is limited, our spreader applies material up to a forty foot range on snow and ice…the industry's biggest spreading range. Additionally, Meyer dump truck spreaders offer:
  • Can handle anything you throw at, from salt, sand, to salt/sand mix, the electric UTG can spread these materials without clogging.
  • One, in-cab controller that independently operates both the spinner and auger motors with variable-speed precision. This provides better spreading performance through overall control.

RELIABILITY

Dump Truck Tailgate Reliability
Solid As A ROC
Meyer dump truck spreaders are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding contractors. Some of the across-the-board features of our built-to-last spreaders include:
The sealed ½ h.p. stainless steel auger motor and ½ h.p. explosion proof spinner motor provide unparalleled reliability in rough winter environments
Marine-grade sealed electrical connections that create a water-tight seal for greater uptime and less interruption
Slot and Tab construction which provides a tighter, longer lasting fit and finish to our products thereby delivering increased reliability.
Powder Coated paint for greater durability over the life of your spreader
 
The 3/8 inch auger flitting is the thickest auger flitting in the industry for the ultimate in abrasion resistance.
Hinged top cover protects spreader during normal dump body operations and makes dump truck functional during non spreading operations
Electric Safety Interlock System disables auger when opening bottom door; top cover provides safer clean out and maintenance operations.

EASE-OF-USE

Dump Truck Tailgate Ease-of-Use
Ease-of-Use
All Models
Meyer dump truck spreaders include an adjustable spinner frame that allows you to easily change the height of the spinner mechanism. On hydraulic models, a spinner stabilizer kit keeps the spinner parallel to the road for optimum spreading performance. For more efficient operation, an anti-flow plate prevents material from dropping through the assembly.

show hinged bottom door
Spinners are easily removed without any tools and a hinged bottom door makes clean out and blockage removal much easier. Paired with our Electric Safety Interlock System--which disables the auger when opening the bottom door--cleaning and/or maintenance work also becomes much safer and easier.

Electric Models
For snow professionals looking for performance without the added expense and aggravation of complicated systems, think Meyer. Meyer electric UTGs/RTGs utilize the power of the vehicle’s electrical system to drive the spreaders’ dual motors. It’s that simple. No expensive hydraulic systems required. No hydraulic hoses to run. No complicated controller.
  • Separate ½ h.p. electric motors to enable independent control of the auger and spinner.
  • One, in-cab controller that independently operates both the spinner and auger motors with variable-speed precision.
  • Available in center or left-end (driver's side) drop configurations.
    • The center drop model is perfect for parking lot applications where you want to spread down the middle of a parking lot lane.
    • The left end drop (driver's side) model allows the driver to see the spinner

Hand-held Controller
Wireless Controls
Who likes wires? Meyer includes a STANDARD wireless controller for your spreader. No wires running underneath your vehicle. No drilling holes in your cab to mount a controller. Simply load your spreader in the back of your truck and you are ready to spread. The fully integrated wireless controller allows you to start and choke your engine as well as engage your drive system in a simple to use hand-held, wireless controller.
