Western Products and Fisher Engineering, two manufacturers of snow and ice control equipment owned by Douglas Dynamics, released new pusher plows this week at the 2019 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Ind.
One important new feature found on all four new containment plows is a steel trip-edge. Among the most desired features in a pusher plow application by customers, the technology was integrated into the new components.
Both Western Products and Fisher Engineering say the steel edge on their new 8- and 10-ft. plows are constructed with four extension springs and reinforced with two double ribs at the trip springs to handle heavy loads and stresses. Six vertical support ribs and robust side support posts provide strength and protection for heavy-duty performance on large accounts, the company says.
The plows also features interchangeable attachment plates and high-quality paint.
“Pusher plow applications are the toughest plowing jobs out there, and we’ve raised the performance bar with these new plows,” says Doug Clark, Western product manager. “By adding a steel trip-edge, our customers can tackle those jobs with more confidence than ever.”
“Our customers asked, and we most certainly answered with these new Storm Boxx pusher plows,” adds Tyler Jones, Fisher product manager. “The steel trip-edge and high-quality construction will lead to better plow performance in the most demanding conditions, giving our customers results that will make them proud.”
Western and Fisher say their new pusher plows are 32.5 in. tall with a 63-degree attack angle. A top-mounted, rubber back drag edge also is available as an accessory and allows operators to pull snow away from loading docks, doors and other tight spaces.
