The PV is a multi-bladed swing arm snow plough perfect for winter service on country, district and national roads. Thanks to weight optimisation and various clearing widths, the PV snow ploughs can be adapted to most common carrier vehicles. They are available as three or four-blade versions, either as a PV plough with 9° angle cutting edge or as a PVF plough with 21° angle cutting edge.

  • The PV snow plough can be used for optimum black or defined white clearing in any type of snow and on any road condition

Plough blade

The PV is designed as a multi-blade snow plough with individual blade suspension. The PV snow ploughs are available as three or four-blade versions as a PV plough with 9° angle or as a PVF plough with 21° angle cutting edge. The power-flow and shape-optimised blades ensure optimum snow removal. Blades of the same length considerably simplify the storage of cutting edges. The individual blade suspension positions the blades effectively onto the road and adapts to any surface. The spring pre-tensioned and adjustable turning part enables optimum alignment to the road surface. A flatter scraper blade angle of 21° allows more aggressive clearing in areas with heavy snowfall. The clamping device enables quick and safe changing of the cutting edges, so that costly drilling of is no longer necessary. Depending on intended use, different cutting edges are available.

Override security system

The automatic, maintenance-free override system, with plough blades guided on handlebars, ensures safety when driving over obstacles without damaging the snow plough. The swinging links are shock-absorbing, maintenance-friendly and noise-reducing. They are resistant to low temperatures and protect the driver and vehicle from bumps and knocks when driving over obstacles.

Angling system

The hydraulic swivelling of the plough is carried out by two telescopic cylinders with integrated overload protection. This can be set to a clearing angle of 32°/36° by means of an adjustable stop. Raising and lowering is done by a double-acting hydraulic lifting cylinder with lowering restrictor.

Snow deflector

At speeds of up to 40km/h (25mph), the snow dust protection prevents snow from obscuring the windscreen of the carrier vehicle, while the snow guide rubber prevents snow from swirling over the plough blade. At higher clearing speeds, the height-adjustable snow deflector also deflects snow dust downwards.

Mounting

The PV has a universal device plate for safe and quick mounting and dismounting in accordance with DIN 76060 A or B. The screwed-on mounting claws are interchangeable; and the device plate is height-adjustable through various attachment points and can be flexibly adapted to the carrier vehicle.

The PV has parking supports which ensure safe mounting and dismounting of the plough. Standard castors allow the parked plough to be moved and make mounting easier. PV ploughs generally have a transport eyelet at the centre of gravity.

The quick-change devices offer safety during quick change. The guide claws and swivel bolts mean handling is not necessary under or between vehicle and plough.
