Here's a round-up of the latest in the box plow market

Lawn & Landscape Staff | August 12, 2013

Arctic LD Plow

The pitch: The LD plows are compatible with several types of lighter-duty equipment including backhoes, skid steers, compact loaders and tractors.

  • The steel moldboard design is made up of 32-in.-wide individual sections, each featuring spring-loaded trip edges.
  • The separate sections move independently of one another, allowing the plow to contour to the surface and scrape snow and ice out of dips and recessions, all while moving up and over raised objects.
  • Each moldboard section features an AR-400 hardened-steel trip cutting edge, designed to effectively scrape snow and ice down to the pavement.

  • Skid-steer models are available in 8- and 10-ft. widths while backhoe loader models are available in 10- and 12-ft. widths.

Pro-Tech IST Model Sno Pusher

The pitch: Pro-Tech’s steel edge Sno Pusher, the IST model, has upgrades that include pivoting wear shoes.

  • The upgrades include: 2-ft. cutting edge sections, a 6-in. cutting edge, front pivoting wear shoes, poly suspension and a new side plate profile.
  • The 2 ft. cutting edge sections allow greater contouring to the plowing surface.
  • The 6-in. cutting edge increases wear life and allows the edge to dip below the wear shoes as needed for increased scraping capability.
