Fisher Engineering releases timely HDX Stainless Steel Straight Blade Snowplow to tackle the late winter snow storms still circulating North America. The stainless steel HDX snowplow features an adjustable attack angle that allows the operator to set the blade one that is best suited for plowing surfaces, weather conditions or the operator’s plowing style, bringing heavy commercial technology to the contractor market. The attack angle can be set to 55-degrees for unpaved or gravel surfaces, and for scooping heavy snow; 75-degrees for plowing paved surfaces and asphalt, and for scraping up ice and hard packed snow; or 65-degrees for all-around plowing surfaces and conditions.
The snowplow’s articulating A-frame, with integrated leaf spring, gives the stainless steel HDX blade the ability to follow any type of plowing surface. This feature allows for a cleaner scrape even on the most uneven ground and allows for more even wear on the plow’s cutting edge. The leaf spring also makes it easy for the operator to line up the truck during mounting.
“We’ve combined the best parts of the HD Series and XBLADE snowplows and added revolutionary features to create the HDX snowplow,” says Andrew McArdle, CSP, Sr. Product Manager at Fisher Engineering. “The A-frame’s pivot bolt is a robust one inch in diameter, adding to the HDX blade's rugged reliability.”
The HDX snowplow comes in 8-feet and 9-feet blade widths, and also features a stainless steel moldboard, four trip springs and eight vertical ribs.
Optional accessories available on the HDX plow include Trip-Edge Blade Wings, Back Drag Edge, Rubber Deflector, Steel Deflector, Steel SnoFoil Deflector, Heavy-Duty Lift Ram, Curb Guards, Adjustable Wear Shoes, and 36-inch Commercial Blade Guides. Cutting Edges are available in Rubber, Poly, 5/8-inch Steel, or Carbide. (207-701-4200/www.fisherplows.com)
