Snow Plow News tried to visit every booth at the 2020 Work Truck Show. We caught up with Tod Bozer of Bob’s Services in Alaska at the Meyer Products booth. Tod has been a distributor for over 25 years and a dealer before that, so he was the perfect guy to ask about what he likes best about Meyer Products. Keep reading to see what he had to say to our correspondent, Will Fries (aka “Will the Welder”) when they met.
Top Features of Meyer Snowplows
Tod’s favorite feature of Meyer plows is their hands-free plowing. The plow can be put in “hands-free” mode from the controller, then it can be set up to automatically drop when in drive or you can do the opposite and set it up to automatically drop when the truck is in reverse. In other words, the driver can use the truck’s shift lever to control the up/down movement of the blade. Plus you can simply double-click a button on the controller to move the moldboard instead of continuously pressing the button. Tod says that feature is the biggest seller for Meyer in his opinion.
Next, the five-year warranty from manufacturers defects is a big seller for Tod. All the contractor needs to do is register their plow online within 60 days of purchase to get an industry-leading full five-year warranty on complete plow systems. Normally Meyer plows come with a two-year warranty, but by registering and following their guidelines, the warranty is extended to a full five years to cover defects in materials or workmanship.
Wireless Sanders from Meyer
Along with snowplows, Meyer has salt spreaders and sanders that are hard to beat. Tod’s favorite feature of Meyer’s Elite pickup insert spreader is the wireless controller. They come with reliable Honda engines and they can be easily moved from truck to truck since no wiring harnesses are needed. The easy-to-use wireless controller allows the engine speed to throttle up and choke as well as turn on and off with just a touch of a button.
More Meyer Plow Features
Meyer has been around since 1926, in fact, they are proud to say they created the first snowplow for an automobile ever! So it’s no surprise that they continue to provide innovative great features on their plows. Their newest innovations include a bigger and stronger than ever automatically adjustable Super Blade. It has flared wings that can extend independently or as a pair. The Super-V3 is their latest v-plow with industry-leading ground clearance and independently controlled wings. The Super-V3 LD packs the same features, but in a light-duty design for half-ton trucks.
