How managers can move their organization from reactive emergencies to planned activities
Angela Testa, senior vice president of operations at American Campus Communities, strengthens operations without compromising a healthy work environment
Western Products unveiled its new 10-foot 6-inch Heavy-Duty MVP 3 v-plow at the 2019 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. This new model expands the WESTERN MVP 3 v-plow line-up, fitting Class 4 to 6 vehicles for heavy-duty use. The plow is designed with 45-inch-tall, flared wings to accommodate the wider plow and increase its ability to move larger amounts of snow.
ImageThe new 10-foot 6-inch Heavy-Duty MVP 3 v-plows are designed with a new heavy-duty T-Frame that uses a solid, one-piece construction and includes integrated blade angle stops and an oscillating pivot bar. In addition, the thicker moldboard, more robust base angle, eight vertical ribs and the exclusive WESTERN POWER BAR provide exceptional torsional strength and rigidity to eliminate blade twisting.
Other features of the 10-foot 6-inch Heavy-Duty MVP 3 v-plows include a trip-edge design to protect equipment from hidden obstacles whether in v-mode, scoop or straight blade configuration, a larger steel gap cover and UltraLock double-acting cylinders. Curb guards also come standard. These features, along with its increased size, will help contractors be more efficient and decrease the amount of time it takes to complete an account.
Customers now also have the option to choose between the new WESTERN NIGHTHAWK LED headlamps with EdgeView Technology or the existing NIGHTHAWK dual-halogen headlamps. The LED headlamps feature exclusive EdgeView Technology, providing a full 180 degrees of light visibility from plow edge to plow edge for the best all-around view of the plow’s operating environment.
“Many contractors have already had great experiences using our MVP 3 v-plow, and a number of them have asked for a larger-sized v-plow that will fit their bigger trucks,” said Doug Clark, WESTERN product manager. “By expanding our line to meet their needs, we’re helping our customers get more jobs done faster, which is always our goal.”
