TruckCraft TC-160 Lightning Spreader

Here's a great way to save weight and increase payload for sand & salt spreading and dump body applications.

Products from TruckCraft are built with a combination of aluminum and stainless steel, the result is less weight and increased payload capability for the truck. A good example is the TC-160 Spreader. It is non-rusting and provides near "0" maintenance. TruckCraft uses the highest grade resistant aluminum available. The aluminum is 50-60 percent less weight than traditional steel construction.
