Bobcat Snowblower Attachment
Equipped with nine different width options, and an increased intake height and bigger auger, operators can clear more flakes in less time. The attachment features a direct-drive, sprocket-style chute rotation that enables operators to point snow in virtually any direction and set it wherever the job requires—even in hard-to-reach places. The chute delivers 270 ̊ of rotation, a 15 ̊ increase over previous designs. High-flow models capture extra available hydraulic horsepower from the carrier. Adjustable skid shoes mounted to the sides of the snow-blower allow raising or lowering the clearing depth. The skid shoes not only make it easy to maintain ground alignment, but can also help guide operators along curbs or walls—while preventing contact with the snowblower itself.

FISHER® STEEL-CASTER™ Hopper Spreaders with Pre-Wet Capability
Bring efficiency to any salting operation with the pre-wet and direct liquid application kits for the FISHER STEEL-CASTER 0.7-6.0 cu yd stainless steel hoppers. This accessory kit permits the operator to activate the salt before it hits the spinner, which accelerates melting for faster results. Pre-wet salt granules bounce less, keeping the material where machine operators want it to go. Studies have shown that pre-wetting can reduce salt application rates by 20% to 30%. STEEL-CASTER stainless steel hopper spreaders feature a corrosion-resistant hopper, pintle chain conveyor system, flip-up chute, and dual variable-speed control.
SnowEx® Scrape Maxx™ Down-Force Kits
Unleash any plow’s scraping potential with SnowEx Scrape Maxx Down-Force kits, now standard on all SnowEx truck plows. This feature gives users the ability to apply downward force to bust through hard pack and maximize to-the-pavement scraping performance. Scrape Maxx also unlocks commercial-grade, heavy-duty performance from SnowEx Light-Truck and Regu-lar-Duty plows, improving back dragging and overall clearing capabilities without the need to upgrade to a larger vehicle or heavier plow. Providing more downward force to keep the blade against the surface—even over uneven terrain—the Scrape Maxx is ideal for back dragging jobs. Since the Kit utilizes capacities already built into truck plows, installation and control are easy. Simply press and hold the down button to engage and the Scrape Maxx feature does the rest.
WESTERN® PILE-DRIVER™ WITH TRACE™ Edge Technology
The WESTERN PILE DRIVER lineup of pusher plows—available in 8′, 10′, 12′, 14′, and 16′ widths—comes with three heights and a common carrier attachment system, making installation easy with a wide variety of equipment. A floating coupler reduces negative down pressure from the vehicle, protecting against pre-mature wear. Plow operation is conveniently tied into the equipment’s controls. Simply raise and lower the lift arm and angle the attachment plate to position the pusher. The patent-pending TRACE™ edge system consists of independent 2′ sections that oscillate, move vertically, and trip to accommodate obstacles in the plowable surface. A 3/4″ cutting edge with carbide insert provides durability, and self-leveling side plates keep the TRACE edge in contact with the plowing surface for a cleaner scrape.
Toro® Workman® UTX
Toro’s all-new line of Workman UTX utility vehicles are durable, versatile, and rugged. The commercial-grade, 4-wheel drive vehicle is built on a high-strength steel frame and uses a proprietary ground speed governing system, allowing the operator to limit the speed of the machine without gutting the power. Made to take on tough winter conditions, the Workman UTX is equipped with an integrated BOSS plow mount, all-weather cab with heat, and push-button 4-wheel drive. Like a full-sized vehicle, the Workman UTX is road-ready with standard turn signals, brake lights, hazards, LED headlights, and horn. The Workman UTX is available in two and four-passenger models.
