The new 10-foot 6-inch model has a larger center snow control, a new T-Frame that uses a solid, one-piece construction, and includes integrated blade angle stops and an oscillating pivot bar.
Other features include a trip-edge design to get over bumps and hidden obstacles whether in V, scoop or straight-blade configuration, helping to protect the plow, the truck and the operator. InstaLock double-acting cylinders allow the operator to lock the wings together when using the v-plow in straight blade mode and hold the wings firmly in place for clean, efficient back dragging.
The 10-foot 6-inch XV2 v-plow will be available with the option to choose between the new Intensifire LED headlamps with EdgeView Technology or the existing Intensifire dual-halogen headlamps. The LED headlamps feature exclusive EdgeView Technology, providing a full 180 degrees of light visibility from plow edge to plow edge for the best all-around view of the plow’s operating environment.
“Our customers love the XV2 v-plow and have been asking for a larger model for their larger trucks,” said Fisher Engineering Product Manager Tyler Jones. “The new 10-foot 6-inch model will be a great addition to their fleets and help make their big trucks even more productive.”
In addition, Fisher launched two new Storm Boxx pusher plow models. These two new heavy-duty pusher plows are 8- and 10-feet wide, and now come with a steel trip-edge for better scraping performance.
Fisher conducted a voice-of-customer research study which revealed that a steel trip-edge was one of the most sought-after features in pusher plow applications. The steel trip-edges on the new pushers are constructed with four extension springs and reinforced with two double ribs at the trip springs to handle large snow loads and stresses. Six vertical support ribs maximize bucket impact strength and structural integrity, while 10-gauge steel moldboards offer superior strength. The robust side support struts help provide protection for the wings against bending from hitting curbs or other accidental impact.
Fisher Engineering will also offer interchangeable attachment plates with these plows, providing flexibility to attach the pushers to various types of equipment within a fleet.
The plows will be able to fit various machines, including:
- 45+ horsepower skid-steers (10-foot plow may need 60+ horsepower in some cases)
- 60+ horsepower wheel loaders and backhoes
- 40+ horsepower tractors (10-foot plow needs 50+ horsepower)
The pusher plows measure 32.5 inches tall, and they feature an optimized 63-degree angle of attack and new, high-quality paint that holds up better against elements like salt and UV rays. A top-mounted, rubber back drag edge is available as an accessory and allows operators to pull snow away from loading docks, doors and other tight spaces.
