The SNK 55.1 combines a light plastic plough share and a stable steel construc- tion for optimum power transmission. The plough allows travel speeds of up to 60kph/37mph and has a clearing width of 4,535mm/14.8ft. The plastic plough blade prevents corrosion and provides high noise damping, while the geometric shape ensures optimum snow ejection with a high resistance to shocks.
Override security system
The automatic override system allows obstacles to be driven over safely without damaging the snow plough. Height- adjustable, pneumatic-tyred steering wheels are fitted as standard for optimum running characteristics.
The patented three-point lifting mechanism ensures optimum lateral inclination. The mounting plate can be raised hydraulically for mounting and dismounting. The SNK 55.1 is equipped with a hydraulic installation for snow plough operation to match to the vehicle hydraulic system with two control cells and it has one lifting cylinder and two swivel cylinders without separate return.
For optimum snow clearance in all snow conditions, the plough shares can be swiveled up to 45° by means of the hydraulic side adjustment. It also reduces the passage width, which may be helpful in placing the plough in the airport hangar. The angling system is carried out by two hydraulic cylinders, and is infinitely variable with end stop.
Rubber cutting edge (size 30mm) (R):
Due to the flexible and elastic characteristics of rubber, it glides smoothly over the surface. A rubber cutting edge is especially efficient when clearing snow slush.
Working support devices
Castor wheels extend a life time of cutting edges and let to smoother override the obstacles.
The SNK 55.1 is attached to the matching vehicle mounting plate using the quick-change method.
