Schmidt｜Tarron MS Airport
Its multi-blade system makes the Tarron MS snow plough highly adaptable to the traffic area to be cleared. Depending on the length of the cutting edge - which ranges from 4,800 mm to 8,000 mm - the MS ploughs consist of five to eight ploughshares, each equipped with a special Vulkollan clearing rail. Pre-tensioned blade segments allow aggressive use.
In the option with reduced blade height, each MS series snow plough is 220 mm lower on the left, centre and right. The shape of the clearing blade is designed for wide ejection rates even at low feed rates, with a 45° angle of attack. This makes the MS suitable for clearing in formation. An optional fine finish blade removes any remaining snow and thus reduces the use of de-icing agents.
Each blade is held in position by two reinforced springs, while the outer blade segments have three springs, it provides better stability when overriding the obstacles.
Override security system
The automatic and maintenance-free override security system allows safe and smooth driving over obstacles without damaging the snow plough. Over-riding ground obstacles, such as concrete elevations or floor lamps, is therefore no problem. Shock absorber strips absorb the starting impact and reduce noise emission.
A precise, parallel lifting device for lifting, lowering and swivelling the plough not only creates a large ground clearance during transport, but also allows for tension-free swivelling. A special design minimizes the distance of the gravity point to the front axle providing a better weight distribution.
Hydraulic angling system
Two hydraulic cylinders capable of sustaining high actuating forces are used for the side changeover.
Slush cutting edge PUR
PUR cutting edge are often used for the airport areas. These cutting edges allow for more efficient snow clearance without causing any damage to either the surfaces or to the floor lamps. The PUR cutting edges represent a very high slide resistance and low noise level.
Rubber cutting edge (only for MS48.2) (R)
Due to the flexible and elastic characteristics of rubber, it glides smoothly over the surface. A rubber cutting edge is especially efficient when clea- ring snow slush.
GuKo cutting edge (only for MS48.2) (GK 5)
A GK cutting edge allows for more efficient snow slush clearing with longer service life and less friction. This cutting edge is made of steel, rubber and corundum and is therefore more aggressive than a rubber cutting edge.
Working support devices
The infinitely height-adjustable castor wheels with optional splash guards ensure precise adjustment of the snow plough and provide appropriate aggressiveness during snow clearing. They support the frame when driving over obst- acles and extend the service life of the cutting edge.
A snow deflector prevents poor visibility due to snow swirling up to the wind- screen of the vehicle. There are two variants to choose from.
1. an elastic snow deflector made of polyurethane, suitable for all kind of snow. Due to its special joint covers, it prevents slush from getting between the blades.
2. an adjustable snow deflector made of cloth. This version is particularly suitable for powder snow and high speeds. A combination with the polyurethane or rubber snow deflector is possible.
Fine finish blade
The snow ploughs can be equipped with a very efficient fine finish blade. With its help, the remaining snow is thoroughly removed, increasing safety and reducing the use of de-icing agents.
A-version - snow ejection barrier
The A-version transforms a standard snow plough on demand in to a U-shaped snow plough which allows collecting snow. The ejection barrier, left and right, can be operated while driving what makes the plough a flexible tool while clearing snow.
K-version - foldable outer segments
The K-version allows to reduce the passing width of the plough in order to save a parking space.
W-version - quick release system
The W-version, containing an additional quick release system, saves time when attaching the snow plough to a truck.
