Preventative Maintenance and Pre-Trip Inspections
Cutting Edge Blade, Cover Plates and Connection Maintenance
The cutting edge and cover plate are the most crucial components of your snow plow rig and also something that needs regular inspection and maintenance. The cover plate protects the main plow that is doing the cutting or breaking of compact snow, ice, and debris and is also designed to skip over street fixtures such as manholes, covers, and potholes.
How do we handle blade and plow connections? Older model plow connections include a chain hoist which should be free of rust or other signs of wear. Preventative maintenance is key. Newer trucks use bolted connections for the mold angle which are also susceptible to wear and need regular inspection. That said, these bolts are quick and easy to replace especially on the go which reduces downtime. We’ve seen every type of plow connection hitch from Pin Types, Quick Hitch or Pin and Loop Style.
The carbide or rubber blade cutting edge can wear rapidly depending on job volume and the environment. This tip starts at a one-inch dimension and can become brittle exposing. Our mobile diesel mechanics make sure to check this crucial part regularly, making recommendations and changing out your snow plow blade if necessary.
Finally, we make sure your mold is undamaged holds a secure connection and can maintain its plow angle. Your blade angle should be ideally set to a 22 to 23-degree angle depending on truck weight. Newer model trucks require a higher blade angle sometimes approaching 90 degrees as the materials in the blade and the vehicle chassis are lighter overall. An offset blade combined with regular wear can seriously damage your truck leading to at least a full day downtime.
