Oscillating skid-steer Mount

vcsPRAsset_3416304_60283_4b9ad7d4-2995-4a82-8f6b-b5379938023d_0Western adds a new oscillating mount option for the Prodigy and Pro-Plus skid-steer snowplows.

The mount, which attaches the snowplow to the skid-steer loader’s universal plate, features six degrees of side-to-side oscillation, allowing the plow to adjust to uneven terrain.

The new design of the mount also puts more control into the hands of the operator by using bucket hydraulics on the skid-steer loader to raise and lower the blade.

“We set out to make plowing easier and more effective for our skid-steer customers,” said Doug Clark, product manager for Western Products. “This new mount helps the operator do a better job in less time, which is always our goal.”

Designed for increased visibility and safety, these new headlamps are 36 percent brighter and offer a 35 percent increase in high-beam distance compared to previous headlamps.

The Nighthawk headlamps feature an improved seal and Gore-Tex patch-protected vent to help keep moisture out of the casing.

“It’s no secret that snowplow drivers do most of their work in the middle of the night, ” said Doug Clark, product manager of Western Products. “We upgraded the performance, durability and even the look of our headlamps to help increase visibility, safety and quality of work for those out getting the job done. Plus, they look great.”
