Plough blade

The VPL consists of a right and a left ploughshare, connected in the middle with an A-frame by means of pivots, which forms a stable base for difficult and heavy snow clearance. The geometrically shaped and steeply inclined ploughshare ensures optimum snow ejection, while a wide range of cutting edges allows the plough to be used in all types of conditions.

Override security system

The VPL easily overcomes ground obstacles even under difficult operating conditions. This is due to the automatic override security system with shock absorber rails, which absorbs the high starting energy and ensures minimal noise and very smooth running.

Lifting device

An optional lifting system allows easy adaptation to vehicles with either a lifting system or mounting plates.

Hydraulics

All functions are hydraulic and can be operated from the cab. 

Two hydraulic cylinders operate each ploughshare and swivel it against a mechanical stop when fully engaged.

In the standard version, the VPL is suitable for vehicle hydraulic systems with two control cells for snow plough operation. Pressure relief valves and accumulators in the hydraulic system protect and dampen the shares.

Mounting

The VPL series is equipped with a mounting plate as standard. The optional lifting system with country-specific mounting plates enables adaptation to vehicles with both lifting systems or mounting plates and allows changeover within minutes. The VPL is suitable for mounting on both work vehicles and front loaders.

Options

The VPL can be equipped with a "Super Swing" feature which allows the ploughshares to be swivelled diagonally to the right, left or only to one side.

Further options including sliding shoes, trailing wheels and snow dust protection are also available.
