Western Products (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) introduced the PRO PLUS HD straight blade plow and key enhancements of the WIDE-OUT adjustable wing plows.
PRO PLUS HD straight blade plow
The plow is designed specifically for the challenges of heavy contractor jobs and municipal applications. Compatible with up to Class 6 trucks and measuring 10' in width, it’s one of the most durable straight blade plows on the market.
The 11-gauge powder-coated steel blade is reinforced with eight vertical ribs for added strength and stability. It also includes larger hydraulic rams, pins, gussets and hardware, plus a robust T-frame design with a massive center pin.
The 10' PRO PLUS HD snowplow measures 34" tall, making it ideal for large contractor jobs like parking lots, or for light, on-road municipal work. For those tough jobs, the well-known reliability of WESTERN-made hydraulics is crucial.
“Our new PRO PLUS HD plow is as tough as the people who operate it,” said Doug Clark, product manager for WESTERN. “Our customers demand durability and reliability for those challenging jobs, and we’re excited to give them exactly what they’re asking for in this new plow.”
The WESTERN PRO PLUS HD plow is simple in its design, but users can customize it to fit their needs with a wide range of accessory options. These accessories include half-inch, abrasion-resistant carbide cutting edges; blade angle stops; snow deflectors; shoe kits and many more.
WESTERN plows also provide CONTRACTOR-GRADE® features such as the FLEET FLEX electrical system, the easy-to-use UltraMount
WIDE-OUT adjustable wing plows
The new WIDE-OUT plow is now two inches taller, going from 29" to 31". The design updates also include much-anticipated flared wings. This size update allows for snow operators to be more efficient on their jobs. They can carry more snow with each pass and move on to the next job more quickly than ever before.
Western Products has also announced a brand new, larger version of the plow, called the WIDE-OUT XL adjustable wing snowplow. In straight blade mode, it extends from 8' 6" to 11', making it the widest WESTERN plow for truck applications. This plow can handle tough, heavy contractor work and fits up to Class 6 trucks.
Snowplow operators will have the same control and versatility with the new WIDE-OUT plows, which feature an innovative hydraulic adjustable wing technology. The operator can change the wing position from straight blade to windrow to scoop from the comfort of the driver’s seat, saving more time on the job.
“The WIDE-OUT snowplow has always been about efficiency and control, and these updates enhance both of those key values,” said Doug Clark, product manager for WESTERN. “The new flared wings and increased size are powered by quality construction and our innovative technology, and it all adds up to our customer getting even more jobs done faster.”
To take on the toughest jobs, the new WIDE-OUT plows are reinforced by vertical ribs (six on the WIDE-OUT and eight on the WIDE-OUT XL) and a heavy-duty quadrant. Also, a dual WESTERN POWER BAR provides exceptional torsional strength and rigidity across the entire back of the plow blade to eliminate blade twisting.
The innovative wings slide laterally across a new, structurally reinforced slide box to prevent bending, even under the heaviest loads.
Information on the all-new WIDE-OUT and WIDE-OUT XL adjustable wing plows will be available on the WESTERN website in May 2018.
