Buyers Products discussed groundbreaking upgrades to the ever-growing line of SnowDogg snow plows and SaltDogg spreaders.
Buyers Products Unveils New SaltDogg® Medium-Duty MDS Combination Dump Spreader
The SaltDogg® Medium Duty MDS is designed for commercial and municipal applications on Class 4-7 trucks such as the Ford® F-Series, Freightliner® M2 Series, International® CV™ Series, Chevrolet® Silverado™ Chassis Cabs and RAM® Chassis Cabs.
The Medium-Duty MDS is the first combination body in its class to offer a fully electric drive option. This means that it can be installed on a truck without a separate central hydraulic system, though a hydraulic drive option is also available. With optional removable pre-wet tanks, the dump spreader is built for all-season use.
“It’s a fantasitic addition to our SaltDogg® line-up,” says Scott Moorman, Director of Engineering at Buyers. “The fully electric option is truly one-of-a-kind. Now we can offer our customers a year-round solution that provides an extremely cost-effective way to turn medium-duty trucks into year-round Swiss army knives.”
The dump spreader is built from 10-gauge, 304 stainless steel with roll formed radius sides to maximize capacity. A cross-member-free design makes it easy to clean and a low center of gravity greatly reduces the strain put on the truck.
The SaltDogg Medium-Duty MDS will be available for the 2019/2020 winter season.
Buyers Products Designs New Series of Expressway Plows
The SnowDogg® Expressway Plow is the largest and most powerful option in Buyers’ growing line of SnowDogg municipal plows.
The hydraulically reversible plow features a massive flared steel moldboard with a roll-formed top. The contruction results in an integral deflector that stands 40 inches high in the middle and 56 inches at either end. This makes the plow throw snow farther than a tradional straight-blade and it helps improve visibility for the operator by reducing drift.
“The Expressway is an enormous addition to our complete line of municipal offerings, literally and figuratively,” says Frank Dickinson, Manager of Municipal Sales at Buyers. “We pride ourselves on our wide selection, and now municipalities can get a powerful, full-featured expressway plow with the same high quality, fast delivery and top notch value they’ve come to expect from Buyers.”
Other highlights include a tubular steel push frame that spans across all the moldboard ribs and a ¾-inch angular sector that provides the strength and durability needed to plow large amounts of heavy snow at high speeds. The series is available in 10-gauge, 304 stainless steel or Tuff Kote™ powder-coated 7-gauge carbon steel, with a trip edge or full trip.
SnowDogg Expressway Plows will be available for the 2019/2020 winter season. SnowDogg distributors and dealers can order during Buyers Products’ pre-season order period later this spring.
Buyers Products Unveils New Municipal Flex Plow
Operators can “flex” the upper moldboard of the SnowDogg® SuperFlex™ into various positions. This makes it ideal for urban and expressway use.
Two hydraulically operated pivoting ribs and a tubular pivoting upper cross-member transform the UHMW polyethylene moldboard on-the-fly. Operators can switch between standard, left and right discharges from the cab of their vehicles. The blade can be curled down to fit under mailboxes or control light powdery snow or it can be opened up to throw loads of heavy snow.
“Our new SnowDogg SuperFlex is an extremely versatile addition to our line-up,” says Frank Dickinson, Manager of Municipal Sales at Buyers. “We now have the perfect solution for municipalities in need of a combination high-speed city-highway plow that can handle anything that’s thrown at it.”
The SuperFlex features a 304 stainless steel lower moldboard skin with a 4-inch by 4-inch by ¾-inch trip edge. A fully boxed A-frame and 16-inch outboard nitrated cylinders are standard.
The SnowDogg SuperFlex will be available for the 2019/2020 season.
Buyers Products Launches New SnowDogg® Online Experience
The new SnowDogg landing page allows users to quickly find a snow plow that fits their vehicle.
Users enter their vehicle’s make, model and year, as well as a few other key details, to filter down the available plows. This makes it easy to find the perfect fit. Once a user has selected a plow, they can request local pricing and availability directly from participating dealers.
“It’s a win for everyone involved,” says Jim Nerone, Chief Intellegence Officer at Buyers. “People shopping for plows instantly get the information they need to make an informed purchasing decision and SnowDogg distributors get connected with new potential customers.”
The site redesign also features brand new videos, photos and dynamic plow descriptions designed to make the plow purchasing process easier. The new and improved SnowDogg web experience is live now at https://www.buyersproducts.com/catalog/snowdogg-9.
Buyers Products Announces New Generation Snow Plows for Half-Ton Pickup Trucks
The new generation of SnowDogg® snow plows are designed for half-ton trucks like the Ford® F-150, Chevrolet® Silverado 1500 and the RAM® 1500.
The new snow plows feature full-power hydraulic blade angling and robust grade 50 steel frames. Popular features like the Floating A-frame™, municipal-style chain lift and standard 304 stainless steel blades have been carried over from SnowDogg’s EXII, HDII and VXFII lines.
“The goal with the MDII and VMDII is to redefine the scope of what a half-ton plow can do,” says Scott Moorman, Director of Engineering at Buyers. “These plows are still ideal for driveways and other residential work, but they have the strength to tackle light commercial work too.”
A new RapidLink™ Attachment System allows plow operators to quickly attach and detach the plow from the drivers side of the truck without circling around to the other side of the plow. A hydraulically operated Jack Switch™ changes the plow’s mounting height on the fly to ease plow-to-vehicle alignment.
The SnowDogg MDII and VMDII will be available for the 2019/2020 winter season. SnowDogg distributors and dealers can order during Buyers Products pre-season order period later this spring.
