Introduction
Snow and ice, despite the beauty it may impart to a bleak winter
landscape, poses the dual threat of inconvenience and danger.
The environmental conditions associated with snow and ice, not to
mention the health hazards and economic loss it may impose, seriously
endanger thousands of lives annually. Business and industry suffer, and
millions of snowbelt residents may be affected by a single snowstorm.
Meyer Products LLC has published this manual to help you
get the maximum performance from your Meyer spreader and
familiarize you with the features designed for efficiency and
safety; be sure you recognize and understand them. Follow
recommended operation and maintenance instructions, so
when the storm hits, your Meyer spreader will be ready and
you will know how to spread like a pro.
DO NOT EQUIP ANY VEHICLE WITH A SPREADER
WITHOUT CONSULTING VEHICLE MANUFACTURERS’
RECOMMENDATIONS.
Vehicles equipped with Meyer spreaders installed may be so equipped
as to meet vehicle manufacturers’ specifications and recommended
options for material spreading use. Most vehicle manufacturers
insist that vehicles which are to be used for ice control be
equipped with certain options and accessories, and it is so
stated in vehicle manufacturer specifications for snow plow
application.
WARNING: Deployment of an air bag while using a Meyer Spreader
will not be covered under Meyer Products’ warranty. We also
recommend that, for optimum performance, vehicles used for ice
control be equipped with:
Four-Wheel Drive
Minimum 60 Amp Alternator or larger
Minimum 70 Amp Battery or larger (550 C.C.A.)
Mud and Snow Tires
Increased Radiator Cooling
Automatic Transmission
Power Brakes
Power Steering
Under the continuing Meyer Product Improvement Plan, Meyer
Products LLC reserves the right to change design details and
construction without prior notice and without incurring any obligation.

NEVER operate the spreader gasoline engine without first CAREFULLY reading the Owner’s Manual. It is CRITICAL for
your safety to ALWAYS obey EVERY warning in the manual and follow EVERY instruction EXPLICITLY. Failure to comply will
result in death or serious injury.
A driver’s first responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle and spreader. The most important thing you can do to
prevent a crash is to avoid distractions and pay attention to the road. Wait until it is safe to operate mobile communication
equipment such as cell phones, two way radios, etc. Failure to comply will result in injury.
Vehicle must conform to all local, state, and national regulations regarding the use of reflective markings and flashing
lights. Failure to comply will result in injury.
Batteries normally produce explosive gases which can cause personnel injury. Therefore, do not allow flames, sparks or
lit tobacco to come near the battery. When charging or working near a battery, always cover your face and protect your
eyes, and also provide ventilation. Batteries contain sulfuric acid which burns skin, eyes, and clothing. Failure to comply
will result in injury.
Never transport spreader with spinner in the raised position. Failure to comply will result in property damage.
Installation of a Meyer spreader may affect your new vehicle warranty. Before beginning spreader installation verify
mounting method is acceptable to your vehicle manufacturer. Failure to comply will result in property damage.
Warranty does not apply to a Meyer spreader product which has been negligently or improperly assembled or installed.
Failure to comply will result in property damage.
CAUTION: To avoid harm to vehicles electrical system always disconnect battery before beginning installation. DO NOT
BURN holes or WELD vehicle frame. This may cause frame failure. Failure to comply will result in property damage.
CAUTION: To avoid harm to spreader electrical system always disconnect battery before beginning installation or service.
Do not operate spreader with a missing, discharged or dead battery. Failure to comply will result in property damage.
The Meyer spreader electrical system contains several automotive style fuses. If a problem should occur and fuse
replacement is necessary, the replacement fuse must be of the same type and amperage as the original. Installing a fuse
with a higher rating can damage the system and could cause a fire. Failure to comply will result in property damage.
Spreader is not designed to be chassis mounted. Do not support spreader by body jacks alone. Spreader must be
installed directly onto truck bed. Failure to comply will result in property damage.

Spreader Installation / Assembly
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS 1. Choose a location for the Speed Control (30) that is convenient for the driver. Make certain speed control (30)
is grounded by attaching ground wire to a good vehicle ground.
2. Attach the eyelet end of the 96" red wire (34) to the positive terminal of the battery and route the plug end to
the location of the speed control. DO NOT attach to Speed Control (30) at this time.
3 Take the 222" red wire (33) and route the large rubber plug end to the rear of the truck, securely tying to
vehicle frame. Be certain wire is clear of any sharp or moving objects or the vehicle’s exhaust system.
CAUTION: Some vehicles are designed to operate with exhaust temperatures as high as 1800°F. This can easily
damage any wires which are routed too closely or allowed to come in contact with any portion of the exhaust system.
Be certain all wires are securely installed away from the exhaust system.
4. Be certain the motor leads will not be strained when the plug is attached. Plug the 222" red wire (33) into the
socket. Secure black wire from socket (31) to a good grounding point on vehicle frame. Clean all rust or
undercoating from this area. 5. Attach red wire from motor plug (32) to positive (+) terminal of motor. Tape this connection! Attach black
wire to negative (-) terminal of motor. Push plug (32) into the socket (31).

Speed Controller
General Information
The Meyer 34405 Speed Controller is an electronic module powered off the switched ignition circuit +12Vdc
and supplying the heavy motor current from the +12Vdc battery circuit. The controller will only function with the
ignition key in the ON state. The controller is connected to the spinner motor and vibration motors via a custom
wire harness that is designed to handle the high motor currents. The controller can be mounted under the vehicle
dash using mounting hardware that is provided in the kit. The controller is weatherproof and can be mounted
in areas where it will get wet. The controller includes 5 wires as follows:
1.
Ignition wire Blue (power to the controller through switched ignition).
2.
Power wire Red (power to the controller directly from 12V battery).
3.
Output wire White (connects to the spreader motor positive post).
4.
Output wire Green (connects to the option 1 vibrator motor).
5.
Ground wire Black (provides ground for the controller).
After all the above connections been made and ignition switch is at on position. When the controller On/Off
button located on the front display panel is momentarily depressed once, the LED above the On/Off button
will illuminate and the spreader motor will automatically be activated with 5 full power Blasts and then stop,
the On/Off LED will remain steady on. The spreader unit is now activated. The spreader unit will be deactivated
if the controller On/Off switch is momentarily depressed a second time. The vibrate motor will start and stop
when the vibrate button is depressed only when the unit is activated. LED above the vibrate button will be
illuminated when the vibrator motor is activated.

Safety Features
Controller will only be activated while ignition switch is at ON position. If the unit is wired into a keyed
power source. There will be one inline fuse located at the incoming power wire harness. This will be a 20A
automotive ATO fuse. This spare 20A fuse protects the spreader motor and/or vibrate motor from over
current conditions. In the event that the fuse has opened circuited, replacement of the fuse will be required
in order to restore the operation. Fuse replacement is facilitated with a pair of needle nosed pliers. The
controller also has overload protection built into the circuit board. If an overload occurs the green LED above
the I/O button will turn red and will begin to flash. To reset, turn off controller and clear obstruction from
spreader then turn controller back on.

The actual application rate (lbs. per lane mile) on the highway is the discharge rate divided by the number of lanes being treated.
Spreader Calibration Procedure
Calibration is simply calculating the pounds per mile
discharged for each control setting at various travel
speeds by first counting the number of auger or
conveyor shaft revolutions per minute, measuring
the weight of salt discharged in one revolution, then
multiply the two to obtain discharge per minute, and
finally multiplying the discharge per minute by the
time it takes to travel 1 mile.

Equipment needed:
1. Scale to weigh salt
2. Salt collection device
3. Marking device
4. Watch with second hand
Calibration steps:
1. Remove spinner assembly.
2. Put partial load of salt in spreader.
3. Mark shaft end of auger.
4. Count number of shaft revolutions per minute
at each spreader control setting, record.
5. Collect salt discharged for one revolution,
weigh it and deduct the weight of the container.
(For greater accuracy, collect salt for several
revolutions and divide by that number of
revolutions to get the weight for one revolution.)
