SnowWolf added the FlexFrame option for UltraPlow and QuattroPlow A-Frames.

“We always want our customers to have the most advanced snow removal equipment on the market,” said SnowWolf President and Product Development Manager Jerry Holman. “We design retrofits like this whenever possible so they can get it without seriously impacting their budgets.”

The original A-frame design is rigid, meaning the snowplow’s moldboard is a fixed construction that’ll always be at a constant elevation. The redesigned FlexFrame design allows the plow to rise and fall with all the machine’s wheels riding on the ground, resulting in a cleaner surface and greater traction, according to SnowWolf.

The floating design of the FlexFrame—in combination with the oscillation ability of the UltraPlow and QuattroPlow—enables the cutting edge to remain in full contact with the plowing surface without any input from the operator.

The new frame also includes a semifloating torsion technology, giving the equipment operator the ability to apply variable down pressure on the blade, from zero lb-ft of pressure on up to as much as 1,500 lb-ft by rolling the attachment plate forward or backward—the system either exerts or releases pressure from the blade’s cutting edge.

The torsion system also flexes to provide cushioning in the event of an obstacle strike and provides built-in shock absorption when traveling between projects. Rather than bouncing metal to metal on a rigid frame, the plow’s weight rests securely on the torsion system.

Customers who already own an UltraPlow or QuattroPlow can quickly and easily replace their frames by pulling two pins, removing the cylinders, setting the old frame aside, placing the new floating frame, reattaching the cylinders and reattaching the plow.
