Show Those Fangs

The Snow Wolf Pro Series snow plow has a floating blade that allows operators to put the vehicle weight onto the blade to increase the scraping ability to clean compacted snow and ice. The chain typically used to lift floating blades has been replaced on this plow with a solid steel link and an industrial compression spring. The solid link and spring help prevent the plow from raising over center and contacting the operator's cab when adding snow onto a pile. When needed, the operator can apply down pressure on the blade to scrape the surface by compressing the spring.
