Pro-Tech has introduced the Switchblade
to its line of Sno Pusher containment plows. With its ability to switch
between a rubber edge and steel trip edge, the Switchblade can handle
changing weather and jobsite conditions without having to change plows.
This versatility makes the unit ideal for serious snow and ice
management professionals looking to increase productivity with snow
pushers.

The steel edge of the Switchblade features Pro-Tech’s patented IST
technology, which includes a steel edge mounted on a specially blended
memory urethane. When an obstruction is hit, the edge flexes and snaps
back to its original angle in a smooth, non-shocking trip action.
Compared with traditional trip edge systems that use springs or hinges,
IST reduces maintenance concerns as well as the risk of breaking.
Because the new design uses a cutting edge that spans the entire width
of the unit, the Switchblade eliminates snow trails at its sides.
Furthermore, the wear shoes have been redesigned to cut through hard
snowpack, keeping the edge in contact with the surface at all times.

When dealing with wet, heavy snow or surfaces that are sensitive to
steel edges, the Switchblade can be easily flipped to push with a rubber
edge, which acts as a squeegee to produce a clean pass. This edge is
made from a 20-year-proven compound that adheres to the highest quality
standards and requires low maintenance.

A total of 12 Switchblade models are available for attaching to any make
of loader, backhoe or skid steer. The 10- to 18-foot loader models are
capable of pushing 12 to 23 cubic yards of snow in one pass,
respectively. The 10- to 14-foot backhoe models can push 9 to 13 cubic
yards, and the 6- to 12-foot skid steer models can handle 5 to 11 cubic
yards.

Like all of Pro-Tech’s products, the Switchblade is engineered for
simplicity and reliability. The unit features heavy-duty construction
with few moving parts, resulting in minimum maintenance. It also comes
with a 10-year limited warranty, a competitive price tag and an
industry-leading free freight program.

Options include a variety of wear shoes and a level gauge. Binder kits
are available for backhoe and loader models, and skid steer products can
be equipped with a quick-attach mounting system.

Besides the Switchblade models, Pro-Tech also offers a full line of
rubber edge and steel trip-edge containment plows for loaders, backhoes,
skid steers, and compact tractors.
