Western says its Prodigy snowplow “thinks for itself,” delivering multi-position winged plow performance in a unit that's as easy to operate as a straight blade.
Thanks to its patented mechanical wing design, the Prodigy automatically positions its wings to maximize its plowing efficiency whether in straight-ahead scoop mode or when angled for windrowing.
The Prodigy plow is available for both truck and skid-steer loader applications. "When positioned for straight-ahead plowing, both wings automatically angle forward, defaulting to a 'scoop' position that clears an 8’7” swath," says Doug Clark, Western Products product manager.
As the blade angles left or right for windrowing, the heavy-duty coil compression springs and cable assembly pull the trailing wing back until it aligns with the moldboard; the leading wing remains angled forward to capture more snow and clear a 7’10” swath. "With the leading wing angled forward for windrowing, you'll maximize windrowing efficiency since you can take a bigger bite on every pass with minimum spill-off,” Clark said.
Standard truck-mounted Prodigy plow features include the Western Fleet Flex electrical system for true fleet interchangeability with programmable features like soft-stop, one-touch float and the Security Guard anti-theft system. Prodigy also incorporates the enhanced UltraMount 2 mounting system with its new one-piece frame design for added strength and durability—providing simpler mechanical hook-up with an exclusive rotating pivot bar for accurate drive-in alignment on uneven terrain.
