WESTERN® Introduces the PRODIGY™ Multi-Position Winged Snow Plow

The WESTERN PRODIGY snow plow thinks for itself — delivering multi-position winged plow performance in a unit that’s as easy to operate as a straight blade. Thanks to its 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.

The PRODIGY plow is available for both truck and skid-steer loader applications. “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 it aligns with the moldboard while the leading wing remains angled forward to capture more snow and clear a 7-foot 10-inch swath. “With the leading wing angled forward for windrowing,” said Clark, “you’ll maximize windrowing efficiency since you can take a bigger bite on every pass with minimum spill-off.”

Standard truck-mounted PRODIGY snow plow features include the WESTERN FLEET FLEX electrical system for true fleet interchangeability with programmable features like “soft-stop”, “one-touch float” and the SECURITY GUARD™ anti-theft system. The PRODIGY snow plow also incorporates the enhanced UltraMount® 2 mounting system with its new one-piece frame design for added strength and durability – providing simple mechanical hook-up with an exclusive rotating pivot bar for accurate drive-in alignment on uneven terrain.
