During the COVID pandemic we did not stop. Engineering, manufacturing and stocking shelves has continued and will continue as the great white winter approaches. #WinterEquipment #Winter2020 #Winteriscoming #nostoppingus
A system is a collection of products packaged together and shipped to your door. It is designed to keep everything for a blade install together and reduce the headache of ordering multiple pieces for blade changes. Each system includes smaller sections of blades for easier installation, 1 or 2 PlowGuards, hardware kits (with bolts, stover lock nuts, and conical washers), and includes freight costs. All of this can be ordered with one part number and comes in one box with installation instructions.
Easy Order – Easy Inventory – Easy Install
A full line of contractor grade guards, fitting the most popular OEM plows, have been engineered to fit in a smaller envelope and meet the demands of the hard working light-duty/contractor market.
The Xtendor Family of guards including our patented Impervium® Carbide weld leads the way with multiple sizes to fit most all OEM plows. The Xtendor system comes with two guards (a right and left), a steel blade, and a hardware kit for installation.
Most recently we have expanded our contractor offering with the introduction of the Vulcan v-plow snow plow cutting edge, MoDUS modular skid shoe system for pusher boxes and the Pegasus expandable plow blade system. These product evolutions are a result of our experience in the municipal and DOT markets over the past 30 years.
There are a multitude of variables that go into this decision. We typically recommend you give as much information as possible when either calling in or emailing an inquiry.
Steel is typically a good choice for low speed plowing on poor road conditions (potholes, manhole covers, bridge joints, etc). Steel blades can struggle to match the performance of carbide insert blades but may be the best choice in certain cases where blades are lost or damaged frequently due to impact as opposed to general use.
Carbide insert blades are the cream of the crop when talking snow plow cutting edge blades. They have the cutting power of steel with a vastly increased life expectancy. Carbide insert blades are fantastic for medium-high speed plowing on road surfaces with few obstructions. These conditions are ideal because the medium-high speed reduces impact on the blade, preventing brittle carbide to crack and wash out.
Rubber has a squeegee effect on the road and is the most lightweight material for snow plow blades. Rubber clears light snow, or heavy snow that has had time to melt from salt or brine. The nature of rubber which allows some flexibility when encountering obstacles in the road makes it a good choice for poor road conditions. Rubber is the best solution for any entity that finds itself plowing older decorative roads like brick or cobble stone because it can clear snow without ripping up the road substrate.
