SPECIAL LIGHTWEIGHT SNOW-PLOUGH MADE OF ALUMINIUM

SPEZIALLEICHTBAU-SCHNEEPFLUG AUS ALUMINIUM

THE AIM IS TO BUILD SNOW-PLOUGHS WHICH ARE LIGHTER IN WEIGHT AND ARE IMPROVED TECHNICALLY. THIS NECESSITATES EXTENSIVE TESTS ON NEW MATERIALS AND DESIGNS. THE TECHNICAL FRAMEWORK FOR THIS EQUIPMENT IS DETERMINED BY THE DIFFERENT USES TO WHICH IT IS PUT ON ROADS AND MOTORWAYS. THE SNOW PLOUGH TO BE DEVELOPED IS TO BE HALF THE WEIGHT OF SIMILAR-SIZED PLOUGHS, SO THAT IT DOES NOT OVERLOAD THE VEHICLE WHICH CARRIES IT. THIS OVERLOADING OF THE CARRIER VEHICLE CAUSES INCREASED WEAR OF THE SURFACING AND RESULTS IN HIGHER REPAIR COSTS.
