WESTERN® Introduces Two New Snow Plow Models for Skid-Steer Loaders

WESTERN now offers both the popular PRO PLUS® straight-blade plow and the new PRODIGY™ winged snow plow for skid-steer loader applications.


The PRODIGY snow plow delivers multi-position winged-plow performance in a unit that’s as easy to operate as a straight blade. Thanks to a patented mechanical wing design the WESTERN PRODIGY snow plow automatically positions its wings to deliver maximum plowing efficiency whether in straight-ahead scoop mode or when angled for windrowing.

“When positioned for straight-ahead plowing, both wings automatically angle forward, defaulting to a “scoop” position that clears an 8-foot 7-inch swath,” said Doug Clark, Western Products Product Manager.

As the plow blade angles left or right for windrowing, the heavy-duty coil compression springs and cable assembly pull the trailing wing back until in line with the moldboard while the leading wing remains angled forward to capture more snow and clear a 7-foot 10-inch swath.  “The PRODIGY plow is ideal for use with skid-steer loaders,” adds Clark.  “With the leading wing angled forward for windrowing you’ll maximize windrowing efficiency since you can take a bigger bite on every pass with minimum spill-off.”

PRO PLUS Straight-Blade Snow Plow

WESTERN also now offers the PRO PLUS straight-blade snow plow with a skid-steer mount.  “The PRO PLUS snow plow has been a proven heavy-duty performer for several years,” said Clark.  “For skid-steer applications the PRO PLUS plow is available in 8-, 8-1/2- and 9-foot widths.”
