Thanks to adjustable blades, appropriately formed moldboards and hydraulic cylinders the device efficiently levels any unevenness and ruts formed in snow covering roads and hydraulic control system allows for a continuous adjustment of angles of moldboards and the direction of plowing together with adjustment of work depth.

 

The ZPL snow plow is a frame welded construction. To keep a proper working depth the moldboards have been equipped with support wheels whose position can be adjusted with cranks.

Working with the plough is based on plowing fresh snow on a road shoulder. Appropriate adjustment of the moldboards using hydraulic cylinders allows for plowing snow to the left or right side and in a case of setting a minimum length of both cylinders it is possible to plow to both sides.

 

ZPL plow has been designed to be hinged on a three-point hitch in a tractor. It is to be mounted on a rear three-point hitch – then working ride is done as in the reverse gear (such a tractor should be equipped with a double steering system allowing for a work on reverse gears) or a front three-point hitch – then the hydraulic system output should be located in the front of a tractor.
