    Some of the city trucks in Akron Ohio have them and they look like they work pretty good.

    These flex plows have actually been around for quite a while. Frink used to make them back in the day as well. And they went out of business I believe over 15 years ago. Novel idea but they just don't seem like they would last a hard winter.

    One of our local guys has had one on his Ford L9000 for a good 5 years plowing the highways and it still seems to be going strong. Not sure if it's a Viking, but it's very similar.

    The new Frink is American Plows.
    See the Trac series.

    I spoke w/ the sales rep and he said the original Frink design is still being built in the American line.

    Twistin and Shootin

    Tenco made a version of the Twist and Chute. We have one and I believe it is pretty flimsy compared to the Cote it replaced. This photo was posted here before if I am not mistaken.
