Truck and Trailer Guide
A new straight snow push without trip is now available for Cat skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, multi-terrain loaders, and compact wheel loaders.
Designed for moving snow in a range of applications, the new snow push is available in 8-, 10-, and 12-ft. widths (2.4, 3 and 3.6 m) and features a bolt-on rubber cutting edge that is reversible. The rubber edge allows cutting down to the pavement to remove the optimum amount of snow without damaging the surface. The rubber cutting edge also helps extend plow life and reduce operating costs.
The new snow push features a moldboard specially profiled to roll and fold snow, resulting in consistent, full-capacity loads, while the adjustable, bolt-on skid shoes allow adjusting the height of the cutting edge, which then maintains a constant depth. The streamlined design of the sidewalls provides rigid support for the outer sections of the push, ensuring long-term durability, while also keeping snow-cling at minimum for greater plowing efficiency. For added rigidity, a large box-channel torque tube resists twisting forces.
For convenience, the snow push adapts to the skid-steer-type (universal) coupler, which features a robust, opposing-edge design that keeps work tools securely in position. For added safety when entering or leaving the cab, the snow push uses an integrated serrated step. An optional back-drag, available with either a rubber or steel edge, allows snow to be pulled away from such obstacles as loading docks and doors.
