Fisher unveils reconfigurable snow plow
The Fisher XLS allows you to expand and reconfigure the blade into several plowing positions without leaving the comfort of your truck. According to the manufacturer, the XLS can be anything from an 8-foot retracted straight-blade width to a 10-foot expanded width to a scoop width of almost 9 feet. The plow will fully angle in the scoop position to maximize plow handling and capacity, making it ideal for carrying large quantities of snow or plowing street curbs and sidewalks.

The Hydra Max snow blower, according to manufacturer Sheyenne Tooling and Manufacturing, is the first attachment of its kind in the snow removal industry to feature a smart valve and no serviceable parts. The snow blower attaches close to a skid steer for easy operation, good visibility and access to the cab. The right chute discharge allows the machine to throw snow alongside and behind the skid steer.

The scrapers break up the toughest materials, leaving behind a smooth surface for walking or driving. According to Bobcat, the scraper attachments are used in many settings including universities, construction cleanup and snow removal.
