    Buyers Products introduced a SnowDogg® Expanding Wing Snowplow at the Work Truck Show 2010, to complement the existing line of snowplows.

    Hydraulically expanding wings offer the flexibility for width adjustment on the fly. With 10 feet of plow in and 8 foot package, operators are able plow large areas; and quickly reduce the plow width for drive-thrus, driveways or other narrow spots with the push of a button.

    The wings include a 20 degree scoop, which provides excellent snow pushing action and still allows for flawless throwing while windrowing. Tests have shown a time-savings of 20-25% compared to standard fixed blade plows.

    Easy-to-use hydraulics with full-size SAE cartridge valves and oversized 3/8” hoses provide smooth operation. The rugged stainless steel moldboard construction spreads loads across components, not connection points.

    SnowDogg® snowplows feature stainless-steel corrosion-free moldboards; 70° attack angle for excellent scraping, rolling and throwing action; heavy-duty power unit; and patent pending quick mount system.

    I am willing to guess there is no patent infringment, but they will have to will try.

    Looks to have 1/2 of the wing angle that the blizzards / wideout / xls's do. I'd like to see a video and pics of the back of the moldboard... about time someone came out with a stainless expandable plow.

    That is the main benefit I would say.

    Looks to be the only advantage they would have over a DD produced power plow.

    Looks nice but most people can't weld stainless at home. Really puts Buyers into the game if it hold up.

    Why is that? Explain why you would want less angle of scoop? I don't get it Jon.

    I'm sure DD will have a stainless one soon as well.

    I agree...Stainless is not for your garage mechanic to weld...Im waiting to see the price on this thing...Im guessing $6000-$7000 Retail...

    I'm guessing you don't spend much time looking at the Fisher/Western/Blizzard threads

    Absolutely. If the quality is good, and the pricing is consistent with their other plows, they will be a serious contender. Will be fun to watch.

    I wonder if the frame work is stainless, or just the moldboard?

    Those "oversized" 3/8" hoses are pretty much standard on the other Power Plows....

    Any specifics on the hydraulic system? I didn't make it to the NTEA Show to see these in person, but I knew they'd be unveiling it there. Without a properly sized pump, these plows could be painfully slow. I couldn't find any information on their website, I'd love to see some additional specifications and pictures of the rear of the moldboard.

    Also to note, the slide boxes look to be much higher and smaller than Blizzard and DD uses. The slide boxes see a LOT of stress when the wing strikes a object, and with steel edges, these are really going to be taking a beating.

    I'm definitely going to keep an eye on them and how they hold up to field hours. They could prove to be a great revolution against the DD Titan.
