From complete truck packages to specific equipment to lighting, let Modern WorkTruck Solutions help you find the perfect addition to your snowplow or salt spreader fleet.
Bonnell Industries Inc., has manufactured road and truck equipment in its hometown of Dixon, Illinois, for 60 years. Family owned, the company was started by J.L Bonnell in 1960 when he saw the need for a mobile welding service in the local community. Bonnell is now in third generation ownership and proudly manufacturers five main product lines. This truck was built for one of its municipal customers located in the Chicagoland area. The upfit includes a Bonnell Commander truck body with top screens, Aero tarp roller, lighting package, Force America hydraulics, Bonnell underbody scraper, and Bonnell front mounted plow.
The commercial-grade Meyer Super Blade plow is bigger and stronger than any other adjustable plow on the market. With the press of a button, it can expand from 8 ft to 10.5 ft and back again or anywhere in between. The wings extend as a pair or independently at your command. The Super Blade is 32-inches high in the center of the moldboard, while the outer adjustable wings measure 36-inches high, giving unprecedented plowing efficiency. Other features include:
- Five-year warranty
- Standard Nite Saber LED lights for better sight
- Industry-leading ground clearance means less chance of bottoming out and allows higher stacking capability
- A pistol grip controller with self-diagnostics reduces downtime
Viking Cives presents the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) Winter Truck Package. This Western Style, cross-memberless dump body design is a staple for Viking Cives. The durable quarter-inch Hardox steel body is corrosion resistant and is perfect for the harsh terrain of snow and ice applications. This Tennessee Department of Transportation design features fully enclosed, trapezoid-style long sills and a removable double-acting, high-lift tailgate. Viking’s stainless steel dual auger spreader, 10-ft underbody scraper, and MW30R10 plow with a Corten moldboard has proven to meet any challenge a snowy winter can muster.
Plowing at night sometimes requires more than just your headlights. Triton Snow-Beam 3000k lamps put out a drastically visible difference between standard white driving lamps and the yellow Snow-Beam Lamps in driven snow. The Triton Snow-Beam driving lamps and light bars operate in the 3000K color region, which minimizes the glare effect of driven snow. The lamps are waterproof and withstand temperatures of -40 to 185 degrees F.
In addition to the proven durability and corrosion-resistant benefits of stainless steel, the SnowEx HELIXX Stainless Steel Hopper Spreaders feature HELIXX material delivery system, an innovative design that helps optimize material flow. Adding a pre-wet and direct liquid application kit, the HELIXX becomes a triple threat—with the ability to spread, pre-wet, or spray with one machine. The corkscrew, or “helix,” design of the HELIXX material delivery system is optimized for efficient and cost-effective use of salt, and it was designed to operate in the target range for salt spreading best practices. The HELIXX runs the entire length of the hopper with variable flights, promoting even unloading of material.
The FISHER POLY-CASTER hopper spreader is loaded with upgraded deicing technology to get you in and out of the storm quickly. Enhanced controls, a convenient accessory hub, and the FLEET FLEX interchangeable electrical system give you the tools you need to make the best use of your deicing materials. A pre-wet system accessory is also available, which allows operators to activate deicing material by applying a liquid deicing agent directly on the material prior to leaving the hopper, providing increased material efficiency and superior ice control.
