Flink's FXP snowplow expands from 11 to 14 to 17 feet without an
operator needing to leave his or her seat. The plow is independently
activated from the left and right side. The hydraulically operated plow
does not have pins to hold sections in place or pivot points to bend out
of shape. The plow is placed out for visibility, safety and control. It has
no wings out to the side and no body scrapers behind the plow. For extremely heavy, wet snows, vibrators can be added to assist the cleaning of the blade and aid in snow and ice disbursement. The plow is able to navigate city streets and toll booths. betterroads.com/flink-fxp
