TAILGATE KITS

To allow for the HARDER Dump Box Spreader to be inserted through the Tailgate to rest on the Dump Box floor, an oversize opening in your truck’s tailgate is required, which is not included with the purchase of a Spreader and must be added as an option. The HARDER Tailgate Kit provides the exact size opening in a heavy duty structural frame. We offer two styles:

AIR LIFT SPINNER ARM

One of the unique features of the HARDER Dump Box Spreader is the ability to dump your load with the Spreader left in place in the Box. To dump (or ‘bump’) your load, it is necessary to swing the Spinner Arm up so that it doesn’t get buried in the pile. The HARDER Dump Box Spreader comes standard with a manual lift and latch Spinner Arm. The HARDER Air Lift Spinner Arm Option allows for remote operation (raising, lowering) of the Spinner Arm. We offer two styles:
