Snow Wolf

Snow Wolf Ultra Series is a snow plow specifically for the skid steer loader, with blade features and frame construction built to match a skid steer's ability to move heavy snow load. It's available in seven widths from 6 to 9 feet. The Snow Wolf blade is angled to scoop snow rather than push it, then send the snow rolling, moving it off the blade quickly to keep the skid steer in control of heavy snow load. A dual pivot, A-frame construction allows the blade to oscillate, following the contours of uneven ground without scraping.
