Redesigned Snow Plow Targets Productivity
Fisher Engineering, manufacturer of FISHER snow removal and ice control equipment, revealed the new 10-foot 6-inch Heavy-Duty XV2 v-plow at the 2019 NTEA Work Truck Show. The new model measures 10 feet 6 inches wide and is constructed with four vertical ribs and twelve exclusive x-bracing ribs that provide structural integrity and torsional strength. The flared wings soar from a 35-inch center height up to 45 inches at the outer edges to help bust through big drifts, carry more snow and windrow wide-open areas.
The new 10-foot 6-inch model has a larger center snow control, a new T-Frame that uses a solid, one-piece construction, and includes integrated blade angle stops and an oscillating pivot bar.
Other features include a trip-edge design to get over bumps and hidden obstacles whether in V, scoop or straight-blade configuration, helping to protect the plow, the truck and the operator. InstaLock double-acting cylinders allow the operator to lock the wings together when using the v-plow in straight blade mode and hold the wings firmly in place for clean, efficient back dragging.
The 10-foot 6-inch XV2 v-plow will be available with the option to choose between the new FISHER INTENSIFIRE LED headlamps with EdgeView™Technology or the existing INTENSIFIRE 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.
“Our customers love the XV2 v-plow and have been asking for a larger model for their larger trucks,” said Fisher Engineering Product Manager Tyler Jones. “The new 10-foot 6-inch model will be a great addition to their fleets and help make their big trucks even more productive.”
