Winter Equipment has announced two skid shoe assemblies for Arctic and ProTech pusher box plows.
The systems’ modular skid shoes, which are Carbide Matrix-based, can be adjusted, rotated or reversed independently because of their modular nature, which increases efficiency and reduces downtime, while still providing superior performance on rough surfaces, the company says.
“We received feedback from customers that one-piece shoes were wearing unevenly, breaking down mid-season and were difficult to repair in the field,” says Ken Marvar, vice president of sales, Winter Equipment. “We set out to develop a modular system that would incorporate our superior wear technology in a way that made more sense, last longer and reduce down time, while extending the life of the cutting edge.”
All styles of the modular assembly systems feature 5/8-in. steel adapter plates, skid shoes that are reinforced with Winter’s proprietary Carbide Matrix weld and all the installation hardware required. After the initial purchase, the modular shoes are the only replacement item required.
The systems are currently available for ProTech Series 1 and 2 pusher boxes, as well as Arctic LD and HD systems, and Winter Equipment has plans for additional lines as demand increases. The systems arrive complete with all parts, hardware and instructions in a single box, the company says.
