"Push Pull" Snow Blade Makes Plowing Easy
Hiniker Co.'s "C-Plow" is an 8-ft. wide, 30-in. high, curved blade. The bottom 1/4th of the blade is fixed. The top 3/4th hinges down, controlled by a hydraulic cylinder and a pair of trip springs. The blade folds forward 180 degrees so it overlaps the lower 1/4 portion. A joystick control in the cab is used to rotate the blade and also to raise and lower it and to change the blade angle from left to right or visa versa.
"It lets you get in close and drag snow away, then reverse the blade to push it off," says Mark Miller. "Because you're pulling snow, you never have to turn the pickup around in order to ęback drag'. The blade can be equipped with clip-on box ends to trap snow, decreasing spillage and increasing removal capacity."
The C-Plow blade is recommended for domestic 3/4-ton and larger pickups.
Sells for $3,900 installed.
