SnowEx RDV V-plow

SnowEx adds new V-Plow

April 1, 2020
Fully featured RDV with Automatixx attachment system designed for most popular half-ton trucks

The new SnowEx RDV V-plow includes many of the features found on heavy-duty plows but is specifically designed for half-ton trucks, according to the manufacturer.

Constructed of high-strength, low-alloy steel, the RDV V-plow is stronger and lighter than conventional steel and configures to varying vehicle heights for optimum performance on some of the most popular truck models, including GMC Sierra 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Ford F-150, RAM 1500 and Toyota Tundra, the company said.

Available with powder-coated or stainless steel blades, the RDV V-plow is 7 feet, 6 inches wide as a straight blade or 6 feet, 9 inches wide in V mode, making it the ideal size for cleaning up smaller jobs and spaces. Double-acting angle cylinders allow the operator to adjust the wings independently or lock them together for straight-blade operation and back-dragging. Trip edges are included to protect the equipment and operators if an unseen obstacle is struck.

The Automatixx power-assisted attachment system offers quick and easy plow hook-up, the Douglas Dynamics subsidiary maintained. The system includes self-aligning, removable receiver brackets that provide additional ground clearance when setting up. Automatixx also allows the plow to be connected from one side of the truck.

Customers can choose between LED or dual halogen STORM SEEKER headlamps. The LED headlamps feature EdgeView technology, providing a full 180 degrees of light from plow edge to plow edge, and producing up to twice the light output of traditional halogen bulbs. The dual halogen headlamp option also offers improved brightness and reach, with better low- and high-beam performance than traditional halogen headlamps.

Other standard features include a direct lift system to provide full range of motion for stacking and transport. The RDV V-plow is 27 inches high in the center and 33 inches high at the outer edge.

Accessories include a 10-inch rubber deflector, shoe assembly kit, AR400 steel curb guard kit, cast iron curb guard kit, ½-inch steel cutting edge, 1-inch poly cutting edge, blade stop kit, back drag edge, and the Scrape Maxx down-force kit. The RDV V-plow blades are pre-punched for simplified installation of many accessories.
