On average, LaGrange County, Indiana, receives approximately 33 inches of snow each winter, resulting in a strong need for steadfast and reliable snow plow trucks. The LaGrange County Highway Department currently uses three Freightliner 114SD trucks with set forward axles.
The Freightliner 114SD set forward axle snow plow is a truck built with tough components and a chassis engineered for ease of body upfit. The 114SD severe-duty platform is ready to perform the most demanding jobs with industry-specific features, such as integral front frame extensions, an optional air intake snow shield, a crossmember for wing plow support, and extreme-climate thermal cab insulation. With tough components, such as a heavy-duty frame, a steel-reinforced aluminum cab, and extremely flexible specifications, the 114SD snow plow platform outperforms others in heavy-duty truck sales because it is ready to endure the most demanding jobs.
