Chain Lift System
The mechanical chain lift system offers a variety of performance and reliability advantages over a hydraulic system.
Clean Scraping Performance: The chain lift system creates instantaneous “float” when lowering the blade, enabling it to freely follow the contours of the plowing surface for a cleaner scrape.
Higher Stacking: With a chain lift you can stack snow higher because the plow’s movement is not restricted by the length of the ram stroke like on cylinder lift systems.
Reliable: With the simple mechanical chain lift design, there are fewer hydraulic and electrical components to worry about, so you can count on long life dependabililty.
Easy Recovery: In the rare event of a hydraulic failure, you can push the snow plow up into a snowbank and “short chain” it to the specially designed bracket for safe transport back to the shop.
