In a vote at The Work Truck Show in Chicago last week, attendees chose the Mega Blade Revolution snow plow from Sno-Way International, Inc. (Hartford, WI) as the winner of the New Product Innovation Award.
Sno-Way’s Revolution plow has a design with more than eight patented features. It is a straight plow with hydraulic wings integrated on each end. The wings can be moved infinitely within a 150-degree range of motion. Another set of accessory wings can be added to the standard wings to increase plowing capacity. As a result, the plow’s angle can be as narrow as 7 feet, 10 inches, or as wide as 11 feet, 4 inches. It can be put in a straight, scoop or box position and can angle left or right with the touch of a button using the optional wireless controller.
“With the Revolution plow, we’ve built something new from the ground up,” says Mike Stevens, vice president of sales and marketing for Sno-Way International. “It lets customers move more snow than they can with any other plow.”
Company testing has found that the Revolution can move more than 5.4 cubic yards of snow versus approximately 2.4 cubic yards cleared by other plows.
To choose the winner of the 2009 New Product Innovation Award, show attendees voted for the most innovative of 75 products introduced by exhibitors through the New Product Spotlight program.
“We are delighted to have won The Work Truck Show 2009 New Product Innovation Award,” says Stevens. “The win demonstrates that people who came to the show looking for new products could tell right away that the Mega Blade Revolution is truly innovative.”
