Western Products has developed the new Enforcer v-plow, new additions to its pile-driver pusher plow series as well as a new tractor mount kit.
The new Enforcer v-plow is available in stainless steel or powder-coated steel,. As well, the v-plow features a blade width of 2.3 metres in straight blade mode and 2 metres in V-mode, and a blade height of 68 cm at the centre up to 83 cm at the outer edge, making it ideal for cleaning up smaller jobs and spaces.
The new compact v-plow is constructed of high-strength, low alloy steel, and is the ideal weight for half-ton trucks such as the GMC Sierra 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Ford F-150, RAM 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan.
“We’re always working on expanding our product offerings, and that includes making sure we have equipment for all of our customers,” said Doug Clark, product manager for Western Products. “By adding the Enforcer v-plow to our lineup, we’re able to give homeowners and contractors a plow they’ve been asking for.”
The Enforcer attaches easily with the Western UltraMount 2 mounting system and is engineered with the same features and benefits of Western’s full-size v-plows.
Accessories for the plow include:
- 25 cm rubber deflector
- Shoe kit
- AR400 steel curb guards
- Cast iron curb guards
- 125 mm steel cutting edge
- 2.5 cm poly cutting edge
- Blade stops
- Back drag edge
Other features include a trip-edge design that protects operators and their equipment when striking hidden obstacles, and UltraLock double-acting cylinders that hold the wings in place for efficient back dragging, while also allowing operators to use the v-plow in straight blade mode by locking the wings together.
Customers can choose between LED or dual-halogen Nighthawk headlamps. The LED headlamps provide a full 180 degrees of light from plow edge to plow edge and producing up to twice the light output of traditional halogen bulbs. The dual-halogen headlamp option also offers improved brightness and reach with better low- and high-beam performance than traditional halogen headlamps.
Pile Driver plows
Western Products has also announced the addition of three new sizes to Pile Driver steel-edge pusher plows. The Pile driver will now be available in 3.65, 4.26 and 4.87 metre sizes, adding to their 2.44 and 3 metre offerings.
The new sizes were designed with large pieces of construction equipment in mind. With interchangeable attachments, the Pile Driver pusher plows offer the flexibility to quickly attach to various pieces of equipment within a fleet, including backhoes, wheel loaders and tractors.
“We’re always committed to expanding our product offerings to help our customers handle all types of jobs, faster,” Clark said. “This new line of steel-edge pusher plows does just that, and we’re excited to roll these out.”
According to Western, the two-piece, steel trip-edge design of the Pile Driver delivers a cleaner scrape for hard-packed snow and ice while protecting operators and their equipment against hidden bumps and obstacles. Floating attachment plates allow side-to-side movement, which keeps the pusher in contact with the surface at all times while floating shoes keep the cutting edge level on uneven surfaces to maintain a clean scrape.
Designed to accommodate the demand for non-truck mounted snowplow applications, Western Products released the UltraMount 2 attachment kit for tractors. The all-new kits will accommodate the demand for non-truck mounted snowplow applications.
“Every year, we release new products to our dealers at the Work Truck Show, and this year, we came with a lot,” Clark said. “All of the equipment we’ve released was created to reach even more customers and applications, and this tractor mount helps us reach that goal.”
Designed for easy installation onto a range of OEM tractor models, the kits allow the operator to attach Western heavy-duty straight blades, v-plows and winged plows to tractors, providing increased efficiency and versatility.
A removable push beam allows for easy installation and removal of the plow. Also, with the attachment kit, there is no need for the operator to completely uninstall the mount when reattaching the loader system.
