Hilltip Offers New Tractor V-Plow with Curved Blades for Snow Removal

Hilltip’s new SnowStriker VTR snowplows are designed for compact tractors and loaders weighing 2.5 to 5 tons. These v-plows feature heavy-duty box construction to withstand harsh winter conditions.

Available in six models ranging from 5.5 to 8.6 feet wide, VTR snowplows have a curved, powder-coated snow blade to create an optimal snow-rolling effect. The blades are made of high-strength steel, helping to make the plows light, yet durable.

An adjustable, two-segment cutting edge with trip springs offers unmatched plow protection. Additionally, the plow provides superior coverage because the segments compress independently when obstacles are hit. The cutting edges are available in polyurethane or high-strength steel.

VTR snowplows also have an adjustable attack angle that allows operators to adapt to different plowing surfaces and weather conditions. The blade tilts and oscillates up to six degrees when plowing on uneven ground, producing a cleaner scrape.

A variety of custom mounts are available, including a three-point hitch, multi-car/multi-mobile plate or custom mounting plate with hooks. The v-plows are equipped with double-acting hydraulic cylinders for added versatility.

Options include LED edge markers, a poly snow deflector, plow shoe kits and electric valve. The plows come standard in the color gray but are also available in orange for improved visibility.
