It’s called “Scrape Maxx,” and SnowEx has introduced the accessory kit exclusively for snowplows in the SnowEx product lineup. Scrape Maxx gives SnowEx plows the ability to apply active downward force to bust through hard packed snow, back drag more effectively and maximize scraping performance down to the pavement.
With the exception of small plows for utility vehicles, SnowEx says, all of the company’s plows already have the ability to increase downward pressure. However, Scrape Maxx is designed to harness that power to ensure the system delivers the right amount of force. The new accessory is particularly advantageous for users of SnowEx Light-Truck and Regular-Duty plows, the company says.
By increasing down-force, Scrape Maxx effectively allows a light-duty plow to deliver commercial-grade performance. The technology improves both back dragging and overall clearing capabilities without needing to upgrade to a larger vehicle or heavier plow.
When activated on heavier plows, Scrape Maxx provides additional force to keep the blade against the surface. This helps deliver a cleaner scrape when plowing over uneven terrain, and makes the plow more effective on back-dragging jobs.
Because Scrape Maxx uses the capacities already built into SnowEx plows, installation takes just minutes, the company says, and user control is easy. Operators can simply press and hold the down button to engage the feature.
SnowEx is a brand of Douglas Dynamics, which also produces the Fisher, Western, TurfEx and SweepEx brands.
