    Fisher Engineering Introduces the Stainless Steel HDX™ Snowplow​


    Highlights:
    • New FISHER® HDX™ snowplow features an adjustable attack angle that can be set to 55°, 65° or 75°
    • Articulating A-Frame follows contours of plowing surface for improved scraping
    • More than a dozen optional accessories available

    ROCKLAND, Maine (March 4, 2015) — Fisher Engineering, a leading manufacturer of snowplows and ice control equipment, introduces the all-new, stainless steel FISHER® HDX™ straight blade snowplow.

    FISHER HDX Stainless Steel Straight Blade Snowplow
    The stainless steel HDX snowplow features an adjustable attack angle that allows the operator to set the blade’s attack angle to one that is best suited for plowing surfaces, weather conditions or the operator’s plowing style, bringing heavy commercial technology to the contractor market. The attack angle can be set to 55 degrees for unpaved or gravel surfaces, and for scooping heavy snow; 75 degrees for plowing paved surfaces and asphalt, and for scraping up ice and hard packed snow; or 65 degrees for all-around plowing surfaces and conditions.

    The snowplow’s articulating A-frame, with integrated leaf spring, gives the stainless steel HDX blade the ability to follow any type of plowing surface. This feature allows for a cleaner scrape even on the most uneven ground and allows for more even wear on the plow’s cutting edge. The leaf spring also makes it easy for the operator to line up the truck during mounting.

    “We’ve combined the best parts of the HD Series and XBLADE™ snowplows and added revolutionary features to create the HDX snowplow,” says Andrew McArdle, CSP, Sr. Product Manager at Fisher Engineering. “The A-frame’s pivot bolt is a robust one inch in diameter, adding to the HDX blade's rugged reliability.”

    The HDX snowplow comes in 8' and 9' blade widths, and also features a stainless steel moldboard, four trip springs and eight vertical ribs.

    Optional accessories available on the HDX plow include:
    • Trip-Edge Blade Wings
    • Back Drag Edge
    • Rubber Deflector
    • Steel Deflector
    • Steel SnoFoil® Deflector
    • Heavy-Duty Lift Ram
    • Curb Guards
    • Adjustable Wear Shoes
    • 36" Commercial Blade Guides
    • Rubber Cutting Edge
    • Poly Cutting Edge
    • 5/8" Steel Cutting Edge
    • Carbide Cutting Edge

    More information about the stainless steel HDX straight blade snowplow will be available in the Fisher Engineering Showroom in April 2015.

    I really like the pivoting A frame, I think it will work well on roads with a crown. I also really like the looks of the trip edge wings. I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures of the HDX and HD2. Is Fisher going to continue to make the HD and Xblade?

    Once the remaining stock of HD Series and XBLADE plows are sold out, the lines will be retired, with the new HD2 and HDX replacing them. Of course, they will continue to provide parts and support the many units in the field for those outgoing models.
