Pro-Tech reveals new containment plow

Fusion Edge Sno PusherPro-Tech Manufacturing and Distribution unveiled its Fusion Edge Sno Pusher, a containment snow plow with a steel-infused rubber cutting edge.

“The product development of the Fusion was rigorous and included a tremendous amount of customer feedback and testing,” said Pro-Tech President Michael Guggino. “The majority of plowing professionals we spoke with said they want improved surface outcome, durability and ease of use. We strongly feel that the Fusion Edge Sno Pusher is the perfect balance of what these businesses want from a containment plow.”

The plow is available in 10 to 16-foot models for loaders, compact wheel loaders, backhoes and skid-steers.

The snow plow’s three main components include the Fusion Edge, the Pro Float coupler and the Fast Attack shoes.

The Fusion Edge comes in 24-inch sections, each consisting of abrasion-resistant steel that’s embedded directly into a rubber cutting edge. The short sections minimize maintenance time if one needs to be replaced, according to the company.

The Fusion Edge can squeegee wet heavy snow (rubber) and scrape pesky hard-packed snow (steel). Since steel is fused into both sides of the edge, customers can flip the edge and continue to plow when one side is worn. It averages between 350-500 hours of heavy use before needing to be replaced.

The Pro-Float Coupler floats vertically and horizontally and oscillates, allowing the edge to contour to surface irregularities and variations. The bolt-on design gives customers the ability to swap out connection types. Available options include, but are not limited to, Cat Fusion, Cat IT, JRB, Euro, Universal and Pro-Tech’s post style.

The Fast Attack shoe works in tandem with the Fusion Edge, is made of impact- and abrasion-resistant steel and is designed to help improve plow performance and decrease maintenance, Pro-Tech said. Cutting edge depth is made at the shoes, instead of along the entire length of the edge. A simple pull and reset of the shoe pin is all that is needed to achieve the optimal attack position.

The product is backed by Pro-Tech’s 10-year warranty.
