    Hi Everyone,

    I see a lot of people discussing what size plow to buy, I thought I would show you the smallest Extendable plow in our lineup, the 6-10, which can clear snow at 6', 7', 8', 9' and 10 feet. You can open it on the fly and tip it forward to back drag as well. It is available through any of our 218 Cotech dealers. Let me know if you have any questions and I will be more then happy to help.

    Is that a hinged trip edge I see on there right above the cutting edge?

    Yes, it is. The height of that trip system is 6''. Each of the 4 sections of the plow have their own compression spring. I am attaching a photo of the back of the 7-12, the bigger brother to this plow. It has two springs on each section.

    Cost has a little to do with how far it needs to be shipped but the plow itself is about $5,800. We have stocking dealers throughout the New England area and Canada. Keep in mind it weighs 1400 lbs and comes with all the hydraulics to the splitter valve. We shipped these plows as far as Colorado last year.

    Do they have a "slip hitch" system allowing the plow to float independently from the machine?

    No they do not unfortunately. They have floating shoes on the wings and adjustable tension on the compression springs to help with different surfaces.

    We manufacture huge batches and don't use distributors to get to your dealer. It helps.

    Interesting setup.

    Looks better than one of the originals like this way back when.

    That's a neat plow. Looks like it would be very productive.
