Western Products unveiled the all-new TRACE technology for its line of Pile Driver pusher plows.
The patent-pending, terrain-response advanced cutting edge (TRACE) system is made up of independent two-foot sections that move vertically, oscillate, and trip to accommodate contours and obstacles in the plowable surface. In addition, a 3/4-inch cutting edge with carbide inserts provides durability for heavy-duty commercial applications. Self-leveling side plates also help keep the TRACE edge in contact with the surface.
By working together, the sections remove more snow, reducing the amount of ice melting material needed — and two greasing locations allow the operator to keep the components well lubricated for maximum performance.
“This new cutting edge technology will offer business owners peak snow removal performance on their toughest jobs,” said Andy McArdle, director of marketing – CSI at Douglas Dynamics. “And in an industry where you have no time to waste, the ease of attachment, operation and the best-in-class dealer network will help operators get more jobs done faster.”
The Western Pile Driver lineup of pusher plows — available in 8-, 10-, 12-, 14-, and 16-foot widths —come with three heights and a common carrier attachment system making them compatible with skid loaders, wheel loaders, tractors, and backhoe loaders.
