Top Features – Manufacturer
Mitch Kozub from SnowEx provided Snow Plow News with three key advantages that give SnowEx plows an edge over the competition.
Snowex plows have an Automatixx Attachment System with a single lever, so you don’t have to go on both sides of the plow in order to attach it to your truck. The Direct Lift System on SnowEx plows allows for higher stacking. Lastly, the Scrape Maxx down pressure system on SnowEx plows allows for additional weight when back-dragging.
Top Features – Dealer
Snow Plow News met with Jerry Heyer from Jerry’s Service in Erie, Pennsylvania. Jerry has been a dealer for SnowEx for years and he mentions a few key features about SnowEx plows that he likes best.
Jerry was a Blizzard Corp dealer before they were bought out by SnowEx, so the first thing he likes best is that SnowEx continued some aspects of the Blizzard design. For example, the slide box and moldboard provide excellent cleaning and scraping action. Next, Jerry really likes the direct lift cylinder on SnowEx plows. They got rid of the chain lift that’s popular on a lot of plows and have a hydraulic lift for efficient snow stacking and transport. It also gives contractors quicker response times and now even the down pressure option is available. Finally, Jerry likes the easy and high mounting height with SnowEx plows. They have better ground clearance with a higher height when compared to other plows, plus it has more lift height.
Other Standard Features of SnowEx Plows
SnowEx plows sports many of the same features known to give SnowEx their good reputation like powerful headlamps, a spring-assisted attachment system, self-aligning receiver brackets, double-acting angle cylinders, trip-edge protection, a flared moldboard, a snow catcher in the center, an adjustable width configuration, easy access cover on components, and hand-held controls.
SnowEx plows are known for their longevity and they are built to cut through the toughest snow and ice. They are constructed from high strength, low alloy steel making them stronger and lighter than conventional steel. The reinforcement ribs are solidly welded with a formed base channel that has multiple angles for added strength under the heaviest loads. The carefully welded headgear consistently delivers high quality on every plow.
