Meyer Mate Tailgate Spreader

Meyer Mate Tailgate Spreader

Strap Mounted Tailgate Spreader

To turn your 3/4-ton+ pickup truck, or tractor with a three-point hitch, into the ultimate winter road warrior, get a Meyer snow plow on the front and a Meyer Mate in the back. The Mate straps onto the back of a pickup truck and comes fully assembled for quick installation. It can hold 700 pounds of salt, salt-sand combo, fertilizer or seed.

Big Capacity, Big Performance

When you have to clear a snow-filled parking lot, or lots of walkways, you need a tailgate spreader that holds a lot so you can get your job done. The Mate has one of the largest capacities in the industry (9.0 cubic foot), meaning it holds 700 pounds of salt, sand, a salt-sand mixture, fertilizer or seed.

Direct Drive Motor

Meyer’s tailgate spreader is powered by a commercial-duty 1/8 horsepower, 12V direct-drive motor. That means there are no space-consuming, power-robbing, right-angle gearboxes anywhere on this spreader. The Mate drives the spinner directly off the motor drive shaft, providing positive, energy-efficient power to the agitator system. The Mate comes standard with a built-in vibrator to maximize salt flow performance onto ice and snow.

No More Clumps

To increase the spreader flow rate, we offer an optional sifting screen that breaks up clumps of salts and sand prior to entering the hopper. The standard heavy-duty locking straps on the hopper cover keep moisture out during snow and ice storms, thus improving spreading performance.

No More Clumps

Adjustable Opening Disk Prevents Leakage

The Mate is designed to prevent ice melt from leaking when the spreader is idle. With the pull of one pin, the disk below the discharge throat can be adjusted to prevent fine material from leaking or to stop course material from falling out onto the spinner.

All-Season Use

The Meyer Mate is ready for year-round use and can accommodate a variety of materials including rock salt, sand, calcium chloride, seed and fertilizer.

Made of Durable Polymer

Unlike other tailgate spreaders that require a bolt-to-the truck steel frame, the Mate is molded entirely from polymer material and is strapped onto the tailgate. This means you’ll get years of dependable, rust-free performance without having to drill or deface your vehicle.

Keep Moisture Out

The Mate also comes with a marine-style electrical plug that keeps water out and ensures consistent electrical flow from your vehicle’s battery to the motor. Meyer recommends dielectric grease for all electrical connections.

All Mate tailgate spreaders are manufactured under Meyer’s stringent quality standards. Prior to shipping, every Mate is fully assembled, tested, operated, certified and packaged right off the assembly line to ensure product quality. The Mate spreader is backed with a two-year warranty.

Ease of Use

Easy to Use Controller

Precise spread-pattern control is the key to efficient performance. The Mate's variable-speed controller (patent-pending) is easy to use and comes standard with an operator-selected "blast" function. Selecting the Auto Vibrate Mode automatically vibrates the spreader for 10 seconds every 60 seconds to keep your load agitated and ready to spread. The Auto Spinner Stop Mode automatically stops the spinner if the brake is depressed for more than five seconds keeping material from dropping onto the road. These exclusive Meyer controller features make the Mate one of the highest-performing spreaders in its class.

Easy Truck Bed Access

The Mate comes fully assembled for quick installation to your truck’s tailgate and bumper, so absolutely no drilling is required. The Mate has many mounting choices, including a swing-out option that moves the unit out of the way and lets you access the truck bed from the tailgate. It conveniently mounts to the tailgate in minutes with just a heavy-duty, adjustable strap, so you can keep your tools out of the equation.
