Safety products: Heavy-duty V-plows

safety products SnowEx

Safety products: The new SnowEx® HDV™ heavy-duty V-plows are built with groundbreaking new features that set them apart from competitive products. From intuitive performance characteristics to rugged construction, the plows are powerfully engineered to break new trails and designed with the versatility required to take on different worksites.

Available in either durable powder-coated mild steel or stainless steel, and blade widths of 8’ 6” or 9’ 6”, the HDV plows boast aggressively flared moldboards that are reinforced by two angled power ribs to stand up to the toughest snow loads. The tall flared wings throw snow at a high and wide angle to provide exceptional snow-throwing action, while an integrated snow catcher keeps snow from spilling over the top.

The plows have durable double-acting angle cylinders that push and pull the wings forward and back even under the heaviest snow loads, and can also hold the wings firmly in place for optimal back dragging. A large, 1.25-inch center pin adds toughness where it’s needed most, and, unlike other plows on the market, it is ideally positioned to make the plow completely flat when in straight blade mode, greatly enhancing snow rolling capability.

A responsive direct lift system delivers incredibly fast reaction time to quickly reposition the plow. The system includes a massive cylinder that provides a wide range of motion, impressive lifting power and high stacking performance.

Whether the plow is in scoop, angle or straight blade position, an independent trip edge protects the plow, truck and operator when encountering obstacles. Because only the edge trips, users can keep moving without losing a load of snow.

The revolutionary Automatixx® power-assisted attachment system provides incredibly quick and easy plow hook-up. The system includes self-aligning, removable receiver brackets that provide additional ground clearance when setting up. Further simplifying the process, Automatixx allows everything to be hooked up from one side of the truck.

Users can choose between the POWER GRIP™ hand-held control with backlit buttons or a compact joystick control. The plow can be angled with just one touch of a button. Both controls feature power “on” and float LED lights and are compatible with SnowEx FLEET FLEX technology, an electrical system that provides complete fleet interchangeability between other SnowEx plows.

A standard poly cover protects hydraulic components while allowing easy access. To match specific applications, SnowEx offers a wide variety of accessories, including wings, shoes, back drag edges, thicker cutting edges, and deflectors.

SnowEx Snow and Ice Control Equipment is proud to be a part of Douglas Dynamics, North America’s premier manufacturer of vehicle attachments and equipment and home to the most trusted brands in the industry.
