Adaptive plow weight control. Save your plow blade and your road surfaces.
There’s no doubt about it: snowplowing takes a toll on roads and plow blades. The weight can scrape road surfaces, dull or destroy blades and ultimately cause lasting damage to infrastructure and equipment. But providing safe, passable roadways is a vital concern for winter maintenance providers. The solution? Power float valves for blade edge protection from Cirus Controls.
Offering automatic and manual configurations, our ground speed oriented power float valves allow operators to decrease the weight the plow exerts on the road in order to decrease equipment and road wear, and saving you time, money and headaches.
Power float valve benefits:
- Reduced plow blade wear (lower friction)
- Reduced fuel consumption (lower friction)
- Dramatically less plow noise at higher speeds
- Reduced road surface wear due to plowing
- Improved traction / steering resulting from increased weight on front wheels
- Safer driving at higher speeds (less chance to catch an edge and drive over the blade)
The Moray™ automatic plow weight control.
Utilizing speed sensing devices, the Moray™ adaptive plow weight control system automatically adjusts the weight the snowplow exerts on the road surface as determined by the plow truck’s rate of travel.
The Moray Jr.™ adjustable plow weight control.
For best wear resistance and cutting action as a truck’s speed increases, count on Moray Jr.™ for manual control of snowplow weight adjustments.
Manual power float valve control.
The manual plow weight control system lightens the weight the plow exerts on the road surface, helping prevent damage to both the blade and the road.
