Sno-Way is still the industry leader in snow plow innovation for over four decades.
Even after over four decades, Sno-Way keeps showing the snow plow industry how to do innovation. In 1978 we saw a need to be filled and started building snow plows for 4-wheel-drive vehicles. The idea was simple enough, build a better plow and then make it even better the next time! Our engineers started with building the best lightweight snow plow on the market. We wanted Sno-Way to be STRONGER, SMARTER, and BETTER…and we knew that the only way to accomplish that goal was through non-stop innovation. We have kept to that idea ever since then.
See a Need, Fill a Need
One of the first innovations we pioneered was the polycarbonate plow. Plow service owners needed a lightweight snow plow that was strong enough for the job. It was easy enough to make something weigh less, but the hard part was to also make it sturdy enough to handle the rigors of plowing parking lots and roads. Additionally, folks wanted a plow that was clear so that they could see what they were pushing and where they were pushing it.
What came out of that work was the first see-through lightweight snow plow on the market! True to our beginnings, we improved that plow by eliminating the old-fashioned levers and cables and replacing them with hydraulics, electric valves, and coils. Each year we review it and test it, all to make a better product for our customers. Out of those humble beginnings came our current Sno-Way 22 Series 2 snow plow models.
Taking Snow Plows To The Next Level
Over the next several decades we have added more cutting-edge innovations. By looking at snow plows through the eyes of our customers, we have come to understand the things that matter most to you. We have made the controls easier and wireless. Our design team is continually improving the electrical systems of our products, making them easier to connect and repair. We have made the snow plow kits and mounting systems easier to connect to your vehicle, as well. Our plows are now easier to connect and disconnect for faster storage.
As we developed our snow plow lines we were determined to make them better from start to finish. With that in mind, we began with the materials that make up the best plows on the market. We were first to use high strength, low alloy steel that is used in all of our snow plow metal blades. Our steel allows our blades to be lighter without sacrificing any of the strength. We have improved the durability with a Triple-Coat Protection for that steel. We start with a zinc phosphate wash as an initial layer to prevent corrosion. This is followed by an automotive-style E-coat that penetrates the metal, bonding it electrically to the metal. This primer method prevents rust from ever starting. We complete the process with a military-grade powder coat for a tough exterior.
From Lightweight Snow Plow to Commercial Snow Plow
When you needed a bigger plow, we brought our STRONGER, SMARTER, BETTER motto to the table and developed a full range of plows for non-commercial, light commercial, and commercial use. We expanded out…literally! From a 6-foot lightweight snow plow to a 10-foot heavy-duty snow plow, we’ve got you covered! Those plows come in a range of heights as well, from 22″ to 32″ high. Our straight blade plows are the best in the business, preferred by contractors and installers across the United States!
But not every job is equal. Some jobs call for a solution that is as unique as the problem. Our experience in the industry gave us the insight to develop snow plow product lines that met those challenges and exceeded them. First we developed our V-Plow product line, giving contractors an extremely versatile snow plow that allowed them to configure their plow for a variety of situations. With that success, we were encouraged to strike out into another product line to assist contractors with another great need, namely to move large amounts of snow quickly and cleanly. Out of that need came our Revolution box plow product line.
Innovation Drives More Innovation
Our feedback from the contractors who used them helped us to continually improve those plows. In our quest for a cleaner scrape, we developed two important innovations that we were able to patent.
The first was in improving the basic geometry of our blade itself. Our Ground Hugger™ blade design uses an aggressive 65-degree cutting edge to create an optimal roll for the snow. That optimal roll evenly distributes the snow across the moldboard and transfers the pressure from the snow to the blade, forcing it downward.
The second innovation was our patented reactive Down Pressure® hydraulics system. This system effectively applies over 250 lbs of downward force, making your blade 30% more efficient whether you are scraping forward or backdragging. This system eliminates the skim layer that other plows leave behind while increasing your traction. The Down Pressure system also creates less force on your front axle, reducing the chance for breakage and the need for rebuilding your suspension.
There Is More To Love
Our wide variety of plows gives you the versatility to adapt to the different jobs ahead of you. If you need to improve your efficiency at moving snow, our V-plow snow plow can help you with different configurations depending on your needs. If you need to move a lot of snow fast, our Revolution series snow plows can help you do that and a lot more!
Over the past four decades, we haven’t been satisfied with just covering your snow plow needs. We have developed an entire line of products to help you with snow and ice management. We have designed light systems that connect with your vehicle’s lighting system, giving you far more light to see what you are plowing and where. We have improved our electrical connectors to make our electrical systems far more reliable and not prone to burnout. We have developed wireless controllers so that you don’t have to break through your engine firewall to control your plow and lighting.
Not Just Snow Management, Ice Management Too
We continued our drive to provide more for our customers with a complete line of salt spreaders. Every contractor knows that snow plowing is only a part of doing the job right. If you want to provide the best service to your customers you will want to be able to help them manage the ice that comes along with that snow. Sno-Way has a full line of salt spreaders. Whether you go with our classic tailgate spreader or the higher-capacity Revolution V-Box, you will not be disappointed!
Our classic tailgate spreaders are perfect for those smaller jobs, coming in 4-cubic-foot, 6-cubic-foot, and 9-cubic-foot models. These spreaders fit any truck with a 2″ receiver. Our fully encapsulated 12-volt electric motor and enclosed belt reduction drive assembly power our tailgate spreaders, providing ample power that is protected from the elements. These spreaders have a spread radius of 10-30 feet.
