Snow Plow
SnowWolf recently introduced its redesigned ProPlowFX, an all-purpose plow that works for both snow removal and light dirt moving/ landscaping, the company says. The versatility of the ProPlowFX’s new attachment is made possible by a semifloating torsion system that provides infinitely variable down pressure and shock absorption, a trip lock-out feature and a shorter blade-to-machine distance for greater maneuverability, according to SnowWolf. The ProPlowFX also features automatic oscillation, which is an improvement over the previous design. It allows the attachment to rise or fall up to 5 inches on either end, so the plow follows the contours of the surface being plowed and scrapes it clean, the company says. In addition, SnowWolf reports that the resized the blade makes the ProPlowFX ideal for smaller skid steers and compact tractors. The attachment is designed for use with machines that weigh up to 8,000 pounds and is available in 5-foot, 6-foot, 7-foot and 8-foot lengths.
Barko’s B-Series loader product line has recently been updated to offer several new service and safety features. According to Barko, the B-Series loaders deliver high-capacity performance for various log-handling applications, including sorting, stacking, pull-through delimbing and loading. New enhancements to provide easier and safer machine serviceability on the B-Series loaders include relocated fuel filters, simplified electrical accessibility/ component replacement and better wire protection and routing, the company says. In addition, a more robust hydraulic cylinder design adds durability. All B-Series loaders feature a pilot-operated hydraulic control system — in coHampton Roadsunction with IQAN electronic controls — to provide a more natural feel for the operator, Barko says. The system can be configured as necessary and maintenance can be performed without a specialist, according to the company. Each loader is powered by a 173-hp Cummins Tier 4-final diesel engine. Maximum lift capacities range from 38,820 pounds for the 595B to 22,820 pounds for the 295B.
