Chain Lift Design

The FISHER® chain lift design offers a  wide range of performance and reliability advantages over a direct lift system.

Clean Scraping
The chain lift design allows the blade to continuously “float” while plowing, enabling it to freely follow the contours of the plowing surface for a cleaner scrape.

Higher Stacking
With a chain lift you can stack snow higher because the plow's movement is not restricted by the length of the ram stroke like on cylinder lift systems.

Reliability
With the simple mechanical chain lift design, there are fewer hydraulic and electrical components to worry about, so you can count on long life dependabililty.

Easy Recovery
In the rare event of a hydraulic failure, you can push the snow plow up into a snowbank and “short chain” it to the specially designed bracket for safe transport back to the shop.
