Options 1, 2 and 3: The reason we offer 3 options is because every company and operator has a different set of circumstances. In general, option 1 is going to be the "smallest" plow we would suggest for the listed machine size. Option 2 is going to be "just right" in most situations, and Option 3 is going to be the "largest" plow we typically suggest for the listed machine size.
Some factors that go into this consideration include:
- Climate region- Will you typically be plowing wet and heavy snow, or powder? Lots of snow at once or only a few inches at a time?
- Are your operators experienced or green? A good operator knows how to get the most out of a machine and likely could handle a larger plow.
- Are you running snow tires or dirt/all terrains? This makes a major difference in most situations
- How long of pushes will the machine be doing? There is no reason to oversize a plow if it will be dedicated to a site with 1000' pushes as you will likely max the machine out whether your machine is large or small. On the flip side, for very small sites, a larger plow can be beneficial, as long as it does not decrease your agility on that site.
