TowPlow Must Watch

I'm sure you guys might have seen this before but it looks crazy. TowPlow has some cool steering system on the plow being towed, never seen one in person but would love to. Enjoy!

that is a wild set up. i have never seen that here. here they use the same truck set up but they have side plow blades that stand vertical for transport but the fold down for plowing. with both sides down its prob 25 to 30 ft wide.

Pretty cool! I know some states have been adding it to their snow removal arsenal since it costs less than a typical tandem-axle truck. Haven't seen one in action yet either, but what a sight that would be!

Tow Plow

I used to live in Mo many moons ago and I've never seen anything like that before. It looks like the driver has the ability to control the angle on the trailer wheels so the trailer can be controlled on how far it swings out from behind the tow truck.

Thanks for sharing, that's quite a rig.

Quite impressive... Up here we typically just see the wings installed, drop them down to add width when needed.

An interesting setup though, looks like it works well. I wonder how much extra work it is for the operator? With a wing its still part of the truck, that setup you have to steer it as well by the looks of it.

wild but running that you would think the driver would have a wingman on board to help keep an eye on it.

Nope only see a driver in the cab.


Should be a 2 guy operation IMHO for safety's sake.
Cheers

Wow ... it will either make you take a drink or swear alcohol off forever.

Would be a weird sight to see just that sideways plow and tank in your rear-view mirror.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
