Fisher Engineering, manufacturer of Fisher snow removal and ice control equipment, introduced one new product and enhanced another Wednesday at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.
The company’s new product is its HC Heavy Contractor Plow. According to Fisher, the plow fits up to a 27,500 lb. GVW and is designed for heavy contractor work as well as municipal applications. The plow stands 34 in. tall and comes in 9- and 10-ft. widths.
“There’s no better way to build a legacy than to tackle winter’s biggest challenges, and our new HC plows deliver,” says Tyler Jones, product manager at Fisher. “Their strength and durability will help contractors and municipalities complete those tasks confidently and effectively.”
Fisher also updated its XLS expandable wing line of plows Wednesday, introducing new blade options and sizes.
The XLS plows carry more snow than ever with their new flared wings, which the company says are expandable to help the operator maneuver confidently in areas like parking lots or alleys. The XLS snowplows are also now two inches taller, standing at 31 in. tall, with the flared wings rising up to 36 in.
Fisher Engineering also announced a new width of the XLS plow, now offering an 8 ft. 6 in. version of the plow, in addition to the updated 8 ft. plow. This new, wider plow extends out to a full length of 11 ft., making it versatile enough to handle large snow-removal tasks and fitting up to Class 6 trucks.
Finally, the new Fisher XLS plows are now available in corrosion-resistant stainless steel. This enhanced finish gives snowplow operators extra options when deciding which plow would work best with their fleet, the company says.
“Plow operators need to be ready to handle a wide range of situations, and that’s why we’re giving them even more options on our most versatile plow,” adds Jones. “It’s wider and taller but still agile, so it can clear more snow and do it better than ever before. A lot of fans have also been asking for a new stainless-steel XLS, and we’re excited to grant their wish.”
