The Sno-Way 26R Offers Amazing Functionality for a ½ ton Truck.
As seen in this video interview, a plower makes quick work of an apartment complex with cars in the way and he never has to get out of his truck to get in between vehicles. He actually scrapes down to the pavement using the patented Down Pressure Hydraulics on the plow.
The dual hinge wings allow him to get very close to the vehicles and push all the snow forward without leaving a trail of snow for the vehicle owner to climb over. This is plowing smarter!
Sno-Way, the company that offers the patented Down Pressure Hydraulics proves it knows what the plower wants with the super-functional 26R Series plow. Built specifically to fit the ½ Ton trucks and SUV’s the Sno-Way 26R delivers a hydraulically-controlled dual hinge wing plow that moves more snow and cleans better than any straight or v-plow.
What Does the “R” Stand for?
The “R” in 26R indicates the plow is more than a straight blade. It features two hydraulically activated end wings that Revolve around a center pivot. These wings are controlled in tandem or independently by the plower using the ProControl. This revolutionary patented design effectively turns this seemingly simple plow into a snow-moving force.
Move More Snow
As Jeff Hess, Regional Manager of Sno-Way states in this video, “All of these products are designed for maximum snow removal, maximum stacking height” which results in an operator’s ability to move more snow and put it where they want it. Hess commented, “I like to look at them as three plow in one type plow,” as a straight blade, a windrow blade that captures the snow trail and a box plow that can move up to 3.8 cubic yards of snow in one pass and stack it at a 26 degree angle.
The operator can move the driver side and the passenger side wing separately which is perfect for cleanup. When windrowing, the plow operator all but eliminates the need to go back and forth to clean up the snow that trails off the plow. With the 29R you bring the end wing in to keep the snow contained saving the plower a great amount of wasted time.
Placing both wings forward to a 90 degree position turns this plow into a box plow which allows the plower to capture snow and move it where he wants it. The box plow configuration keeps the snow contained on both ends and increases the amount of snow that can be collected in one pass.
Sno-Way’s patented Down Pressure Hydraulics adds to the 26R functionality by placing over 200 pounds of down force on the cutting edge which allows the plower to scrape up packed down snow. The plowed area is cleaner and less salt will need to be used.
To summarize, Sno-Way designed a plow that fits a ½ ton truck with amazing functionality. It is three plows in one, moves more snow, cleans better and, according to the interview of the plower (that looks a little like Santa Claus) it is easy to mount and easy to use. Nice job Sno-Way!
