When purchasing a snowplow, it’s more than just a plow – it’s an investment. Accessorizing your WESTERN plow with factory original accessories is one of the best, most affordable ways to protect your investment. Designed to enhance performance, increase longevity and reduce damage (both to your plow and your client’s property), WESTERN accessories allow you to remain efficient and reliable season after season. Learn about how you can give every job the finishing touch with these must-have accessories.
Blade Wing Kit
Increase your plow’s carrying capacity by adding a pair of blade wings. They quickly bolt on to your plow, extending the plowing width anywhere from 12 inches and up to 21 inches, depending on the plow model. To capture more snow, blade wings extend forward at an angle between 35 and 60 degrees. They reduce the amount of spill off on long passes to get more jobs done faster. It’s easy to understand why these add-on wings are so popular!
Curb Guard Kit
Curbs can come out of nowhere, and before you know it, you’ve damaged the outer edge of your plow. Get closer to curbs and protect your investment with curb guards. These guards fasten tightly to the blade and are made of abrasion-resistant material.
Snow flying over the top of your plow onto your windshield can reduce your visibility, especially with dry powdery snow and extra windy conditions so deflectors that fasten to the top of the blade are a wise investment. Available in rubber or poly, deflectors are easy to install and one of the fastest ways to increase visibility, improving snow containment, which provides a safer and more enjoyable ride. They also give the plow a powerful, professional look without affecting your ability to stack snow.
Gravel roads, dirt roads or heavily faulted pavement can grab at your blade, leading to uneven wear. An easy-to-install shoe kit lets you easily raise the blade height to clear gravel and uneven surfaces with minimal plow damage, extending the life of your cutting edge and giving you the freedom to plow over many surfaces with confidence. When you are plowing a hard, flat surface like asphalt or concrete, just raise or remove the shoes so the cutting edge scrapes the pavement clean. Additionally, High Wear Application Shoes can help extend the life of your cutting edge and lower your overall cost of ownership. By increasing the amount of surface area in contact with the pavement, cutting edge wear is reduced saving you time and money. Choosing the right set of shoes for your plow applications helps maximize your efficiency on every job.
Blade Guide Kit
Even in ideal conditions, an experienced and skilled operator can have a hard time keeping track of the sides of the blade. Blade guides provide a visual reference, and mark the blade edges with a durable, highly visible, reflective indicator. This makes it easier to line up the blade with curbs and steer it clear of obstructions, improving visibility and enhancing the ability to see the position of your blade.
Snowplow Control Cup Holder Mount
Put a hard stop to juggling snowplow controls and cell phones. Functional and practical, the Snowplow Control Cup Holder Mount lets you secure your WESTERN plow controls or your smartphone on a flexible gooseneck mount for optimal, customizable positioning. This compact, easy-to-install genuine WESTERN accessory is designed to fit firmly into most size cup holders in your vehicle.
