    I have a 19' Valk 4-way hydraulic airport-grade poly-plow with a good rubber cutting edge.

    - No hydraulic leaks
    - In excellent condition (originally sold for $23,000)
    - Parts are still available for this plow at the Valk Company
    - Weighs approximately 4,000 lbs. +/-
    - This is a perfect plow for large open parking lots (shopping malls, warehouse distribution facilities, etc.)

    If you plow large open spaces, this is what you want. I used it on a large International tractor (pictured - not for sale), but it can be mounted on any large truck or piece of equipment.

    $2,000 cash only upon pickup (I am located in south/central PA - I can possibly deliver depending on where for a fee)

    Can I put that on a half ton?

    Did you cut a foot off of it since spring?

    Is it a rubber edge with no trip?

    Answers to 19' Valk Plow posting questions...

    The plow was advertised as a 20' airport plow according to Valk, it actually measures a little over 19'.

    I don't understand your question as to it fitting on a 1/2 ton. This is a huge plow that weighs between 4,000 and 5,000 lbs. It would easily adapt to a tri-axle dump truck or a large piece of construction equipment. I wouldn't attempt to put it on anything smaller.

    It has a rubber cutting edge with dolly wheels to adjust the height of it.

    Does it come with the tractor end mount? Why are you selling it?

    19' Valk Plow - Answers to Questions

    No it does not come with the tractor end mount. I made it myself to fit both my 19' plow and my 12' Root Springs highway plow. I'm not plowing snow anymore and I sold the 12' plow with the mount already. I still have another hydraulic lift cylinder that was not included with this sale but I'm will to negotiate. The plow performed great and is in very good to excellent condition. I also have new Wipers and Seals for the Tilt cylinders (they don't leak but I got them just in case I had problems while plowing.

    I also have a few other items that I'm considering getting rid of. I have a 2003 Ford F-450 4x4 dump with a Western ultra-mount 8.5' V-plow, Western Pro-Flow salt spreader with all of the controls, and a new electric motor. I'm not sure if I want to sell the truck yet but might consider it for the right money. I have a Meyers 7' plow head with 2 foot extensions (extensions are new) from Northern Tool. A few hydraulic plow swivel cylinders (Meyers and Western), hoses, plow feet, etc.

    2 more questions - Do you happen to know what the width of the plow straight on is when it is fully angled (does that make any sense?)? Also, Im assuming that you have a way of loading it? The fully angled width doesn't have to be dead on, just approximate.

    I understand what your asking about the width when angled, it will angle about 45 degrees. I never measured it tilted. I do have something to load it with. As far as Crete trying to be funny I understand but since I closed my business I tried several times to advertise things for sale on ebay, craigslist, kajiji and sites like this and half of the responces are from spam emailers trying to sell me something or asking stupid questions. It's got to the point that I quit listing things for awhile.

    Another note, You would need a deck over style trailer to haul it or a flatbed. I hauled it on a 5 ton equipment trailer. from cutting edge back to the mounting pin is about 6'8" +/- Valk no longer makes a 19 footer, the largest they make is 16' (styled the same way) They still make them in Carlilse PA. The last time I spoke to them they said that they had several parts for the metal frame if needed. I know their website has a picture and dimensions for the 16 footer under specialty items and they still make the truck mounts for it.

    It does not have a trip edge, it is fixed. The rubber cutting edge is in good shape and has never been turned over to the upper edge.

    Response to PushinPaul re 19' Valk Snow Plow

    Just wondering if you had anymore questions on the plow I have for sale. I posted a few more photos of the plow when tilted. Hopefully that helped to give you an idea of how far it tilts. Just let me know if you have any additional questions. I would really like to get this out of my driveway before the weather turns bad. Thanks.
