Pro-Tech Manufacturing and Distribution, Inc. introduced its new and improved steel edge Sno Pusher IST, with upgrades that include pivoting wear shoes and poly suspension.
Unveiled at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Ind. Wednesday, the upgrades include two-feet cutting edge sections; a 6-inch cutting edge; front pivot wear shoes, poly suspension and a new side plate profile.
The company says the two-feet cutting edge sections allows greater contouring to the plowing surface, which can yield a better surface outcome. The 6-inch cutting edge increases wear life an allows the edge to dip below the wear shoes as needed for increased scraping capability.
The company says its patent-pending front pivot wear shoes substantially eliminate wear shoe interference and allows down pressure to be applied to the cutting edges. The poly suspension, added to each wear shoe, dampens impact to the wear shoes, chassis and prime mover. The company says it also increases the life of both the wear shoes and cutting edge and assist the operator in getting the best possible surface outcome.
A new side plate design adds strength to the Sno Pusher by maximizing the support of the wedge. Pro-Tech says its 2014 models continue to utilize minimal moving parts and has no stacking or speed limitations.
