Controller software download

Note! The new software version requires system version 2.2.0. This page describes how to update the controller system and spreading software simultaneously. If you already have upgraded the system to OS 2.2.0, you need only download and install the software upgrade file named “”.

Notice that all settings and logfiles will be cleared from the controller during the system upgrade.

Software download

To update the Hilltip IceStriker spreader/sprayer controller to the latest software version, select your spreader/sprayer model, and download both files by clicking on the file names.

IMPORTANT! Make sure you download the correct software for your spreader version. If you e.g. download the 1600-2600 software to a 550-1100 controller, the controller will stop working and has to be sent back to Hilltip for a service repair.
