Curtis Industries Introduces Heavy Duty Utility Vehicle Plow
By News Release | Sep 24, 2014
Curtis Industries LLC, manufacturer of cab enclosures, attachments and accessories for compact vehicles, announces the release of its new heavy-duty utility vehicle plow. The plow ships fully assembled to dealers to significantly reduce installation time and cost.
This durable plow is powder coated for corrosion resistance and painted in a polished silver-gray finish that complements any color vehicle. The plow features a 72″ wide x 19″ high adjustable full-trip moldboard with 6″ double-sided cutting edge for longer life. It’s designed with a 48″ trip frame and heavy-duty springs to protect the plow and vehicle from ground obstructions.
The plow ships with moldboard, trip frame, A-frame, lift frame, hydraulic pump and motor and angle cylinders fully assembled, including hydraulic fluid. Quick installation and one-plug electrical connection means greater time and money savings.
Custom vehicle mount kits are designed for the John Deere Gator XUV; Club Car XRT 1550/ Case; Polaris Ranger XP 900; Bobcat 2200, 2300, 3400 4×4; Case Scout and Scout XL; Husqvarna HUV 4421 and 4421XL; New Holland Rustler 120 and 125.
The mount kit bolts directly to the existing holes in the vehicle frame. No drilling is required. Once installed the plow easily mounts on standard 2″ receiver hitch in less than 30 seconds.
“We have thousands of touch points with our customers annually and we are constantly asking for their opinions.” said Michael Alexander, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “What they want in a plow is durability and faster installation time, and this plow delivers.
The plow’s rapid speed hydraulic lift and angle controls operate within 2 seconds. The plow includes a 4-button hand-held controller allowing the user to operate the controls with one hand from the comfort of the vehicle.
The hydraulic reservoir is enclosed in a removable metal housing above the mount frame for easy access to hydraulic fluid, hoses and coil valve while protecting the components from the weather. Skid shoes, high-visibility blade markers and jack leg, which are accessories on some plows, are included as standard equipment.
“This plow is an exceptional value and built to last season after season,” said Alexander. “Curtis has a long history of engineering on-road plows for larger pickup trucks. That same expertise and technology has gone into this off-road vehicle plow.
The plow is perfect for schools, universities, parks, resorts, municipalities and home owners with acreage.
Curtis offers an optional snow deflector and rubber cutting edge for the plow. Other snow and ice accessories are also available such as a vibration kit, gate control units and spreaders for salt, sand, fine gravel and fertilizer.
