Safety products: Adding to its line of professional-grade snow and ice control solutions for sidewalks, paved walkways and other tight areas, SnowEx® introduces a new Straight Blade Plow for UTVs. The plow measures 6-feet wide and can angle to 5-feet, 4-inches wide for narrower applications.

Compact but strong, the UTV straight blade contains four vertical ribs that provide additional reinforcement and stabilizing support. The blade is constructed of high-strength, low alloy steel components that are stronger and lighter than traditional steel.

The plow features a full-trip moldboard to protect the equipment when encountering obstacles. A high-strength base angle and A-frame further contribute to reliability. The UTV straight blade also has a 5-inch hardened steel cutting edge, and a POWERCOAT finish offers maintenance-free protection. Hydraulic components are protected with a durable poly cover that is easy to remove for quick service access.

Operators can choose between the POWER GRIP™ hand-held control with backlit buttons or a compact joystick control that is easily manipulated when wearing gloves. The plow can be angled with just one touch of a button. Both controls feature power “on” and float LED lights and utilize SnowEx FLEET FLEX technology for easy installation.

A responsive direct lift system delivers incredibly fast reaction times to quickly reposition the plow. It also can automatically lock the blade in position to promote clean scraping.

SnowEx UTV straight blade accessories include deflectors, shoe kits, poly cutting edges, curb guards and a light bar. The straight blade expands the SnowEx UTV product lineup, which includes a UTV V-plow.
