Double tap to zoom




Hotshot walk-behind broadcast spreaders come in two sizes and three models. They are equipped to spread in confined areas, thanks to an easy-to-remove deflector shield that prevents the material from flying too far.


Holds 1.5 bags of fertilizer or ice melt, has a heat-treated carbon steel frame and a polyethylene hopper.


Get Years of Reliable Service

Our proven construction process ensures years of reliable service. Hotshot hoppers are made of high-density polypropylene and the frames are powder-coat painted, butt-welded and coated with epoxy. The axle and wheel bearings/bushings provide self-lubrication with excellent wear and load-carrying performance. 

Meyer offers a 1-year warranty on the Meyer Hotshot Spreaders, parts and labor. Replacement parts and accessories also carry a one-year warranty.

Ease of Use

Glide Over Tough Surfaces

Pushing a fully-loaded spreader over snow and ice or uneven terrain can be frustrating. With a Meyer Hotshot, you’ll glide over the toughest surfaces because Hotshots have 13-inch-diameter, heavy-duty ice-gripping pneumatic tires driven by a gear-assisted axle with self-lubricating bearings/bushings. Made out of heavy-duty Nylatron GS impregnated with Teflon®, the greaseless gears are smooth all year long.
