The Loegering Trip-Edge Plow features all the tough, reliable characteristics you’d expect from Loegering, such as reinforced diagonal cross-bracing for a stronger blade as well as fast and reliable hydraulics. Loegering’s Snowplows are designed for compact loaders and mount easily to any standard quick-attach system. Push frames are constructed with a 3-inch-by-2-1/2-inch-by-3/8-inch channel and 1/4-inch tubing. Moldboards are built in one continuous piece so the blade skin will not separate from the ribs over time. Cast-iron blade shoes are tucked up and under the base angle to prevent excess wear and damage. Adjustable trip springs allow the cutting edge to trip when it encounters drains or manhole covers.
