Snow Plow Tips
There is a reason that a preseason snowplow inspection is a standard best practice in the snow and ice industry. When you take care of your equipment at the beginning of the season, it takes better care of you in season. Here are a few tips to set you up for success before you scrape the first pass.
Avoid simple mistakes and early break downs by following this preseason checklist. Before performing any service, it’s important to review the manufacturer’s owner’s manual for safety guidelines and procedures.
A plowing vehicle has to stand up to harsh winters that not only impact the plow, but also take a toll on the vehicle. In order for your equipment to be dependable in a moment’s notice, follow these care tips for smooth operation.
PRO TIP: If required, make sure your vehicle has the proper ballast for your FISHER plow setup. Check that the Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (FGAWR) is not overloaded and that the trucks horizontal Cg is within OEM certification range for Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 105. When installing a plow, the FISHER® eMatch program can help you easily determine the exact weight needed.
There’s no substitute for proper ongoing maintenance—prepare for whatever the seasons throws at you with these checklists and maintenance videos. Like any machine, a regular “tune up” can keep your plow and vehicle running in optimal condition. Remember, if you’ve incurred any damages following an event; be sure to get those issues fixed before the next storm. It’ll save time, money and a whole lot of headache when you’re out there in the middle of the night.
If you’d prefer to have a professional inspect your plow, contact your local FISHER dealer to find out if they perform preseason inspections.
