The MS snow ploughs are multi-blade special snow ploughs with optional high or low blade heights and based on the successful Tarron series. The MS series is specially designed for fast and highly efficient snow clearance on airport runways, taxiways and aprons. With their innovative override system, they easily avoid ground obstacles such as concrete elevations or ground lamps during operation.

Highlights

  • Aggressive 45° snow plough for high clearing quality
  • Optimum snow removal even with large amounts of snow
  • Suitable for all types of snow
  • Customizable depending on application area (K-, A- or W-version) 

Your benefits

  • Safe driving over obstacles without damaging the snow plough thanks to the automatic override system.
  • Prevention of unwanted snow deposits on sensitive areas such as aprons thanks to the ejection barrier (A-version ).
  • Efficient and reliable removal of residual snow with the hydraulic fine-clearing bar.

Plough blade

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. As the blade segments are max. 1,000 mm wide, there is only a small contact area when driving over obstacles, which means that neither the snow plough nor the obstacle are damaged.

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.

Lifting device

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.

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.

Options

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.
