A snow plow, snow shield & nbsp; is a device for Snow enclosure that is mounted on a carrier vehicle.

There are wedge plows and snow plows with straight blades. The wedge plow has two inclined snow blades, which are connected to each other in a wedge shape at the front and throw up snow pods on both sides of the plow. Because of this design, a wedge plow is mostly only used on single-lane streets and paths.

As a rule, space signs with straight ploughshare are always used on multi-lane roads. Straight snow blades can be mechanically or hydraulic to the left or right up to 30 °. be swiveled, depending on which side the driver of the clearing vehicle would like to clear the snow.

The snow plow should be arched from top to bottom so that there is better lateral snow throw. Otherwise, the snow may run over the snow plow instead of being thrown aside.

A snow plow is usually attached to a truck via a special mounting plate at the front, a municipal implement carrier or mounted on a tractor . For easier handling, it should be possible to hydraulically raise, lower and swivel the dozer. In addition to the front attachment, there are also snow blades attached to the rear, especially on tractors, if there is no front loader or no front power lift
Especially in agriculture, snow blades are often used as space shields outside of winter, e.g. to straighten courtyard areas or paths. Here, as a rule, a different ledge is used than in winter. The winter service rubber apron is then exchanged for a robust steel apron.

A snow plow designed for paved roads has a resistance on the underside that touches the roadway ; sharp edge, the apron . The ridge can be made of composite material, steel, corundum, rubber, hard metal or combinations thereof. For pavement pavements, chamfers made only of rubber and corundum are used. The ridge is designed as a quickly replaceable wear part. The snow plow is usually tiltable. Unevenness cannot lead to damage, as the sign gives way and folds away.

Due to their heavy weight, snow blades are pressed onto the ground. supports or support wheels can be mounted directly behind the snow plow so that the plow does not work into the ground.

Another important aspect of a snow plow is the lateral pendulum compensation . A road surface sloping sideways to the left or right to the direction of travel is a problem for many snow blades, unless they have a pendulum compensation.

A sign equipped in this way can be rotated to the side around a central joint and automatically follows the incline of the road. If a snow plow does not have a pendulum compensation, it is rigidly connected to the vehicle and can therefore follow it on the road, regardless of whether the road gradient changes directly in front of the vehicle or not. In the case of strong, frequent changes in inclination, the ridge is very heavily loaded if the snow blade has no pendulum compensation.

If the snow depth is too high, the snow is very heavy or you cannot store the snow directly on the edge, you may used with snow blowers.
