The swivel assembly shall attach to the pushframe using  a 1.5” Grade 8 bolt, slotted nut, and hardened washer in the center, and (4) 1” Grade 8 bolts spaced above and below the center bolt.  The (4) 1” bolts shall be secured using slotted nuts, hardened washers under the head, and 2” OD x .50” thick fabricated washers under the nut.

 

The swivel assembly shall allow the plow to swivel 3 degrees each direction (6 degrees total) so that it can effectively follow the contour of the road surface.

 

The swivel assembly shall automatically center the plow in the unswiveled position when swivel is not required, through the use of two compression springs installed between the pushframe and swivel assembly.

 

There shall be two spring holders made of 1.5” Sch. 80 black pipe welded to the swivel assembly.  The two centering springs shall be 6.75” long, 3.31” OD, of .562” diameter wire, with a minimum spring rate of 1182 lbs./inch.

The upper arm assembly shall be further reinforced by a 16.41” x 9.88” x .50” thick steel plate, fully welded to both tubes and both front ears.

 

The lower arm assembly shall be further reinforced by a 17.93” x 13.92” x .50” thick steel plate, with a 3.5” long bent leg on the aft side.  The plate shall be fully welded to the square tubes and the front ears of the lower arm assembly along all edges.

 

Two 4.5” x 4.0” x .75” thick steel ears shall be fully welded to the top surface of the lower arm assembly, for attachment of the lift cylinder.  The lift cylinder shall attach to the lower arm assembly using a 1” diameter cold-finished steel pin.

 

The upper and lower arm assemblies shall be attached to the swivel assembly by a 3” diameter cold-finished solid steel shaft, 38.00” long, with two machined flats at the points of arm attachment.  To achieve maximum strength, ensure a direct line of force transmission, and eliminate the possibility of knuckle failures due to off-center loading, the upper and lower arm assemblies shall be attached DIRECTLY to the center pivot shaft – NO EXCEPTIONS, using 1.25” diameter cold-finished steel pins.  Knuckles SHALL NOT be used to attach the upper and lower arm assemblies to the center shaft or swivel assembly.

 

To provide for ease of maintenance, the pins used to connect the upper and lower arm assemblies shall NOT be welded in place.  The pins must be able to be removed by removing standard fasteners with standard tools;  no torching or cutting shall be required.

 

The center pivot shaft shall be secured to the swivel assembly using a 4” OD x 3.03” ID x 6.88” long steel bushing, a 1” diameter Grade 8 bolt, and a nylock nut and hardened washer.

 

The plow shall be designed to install and uninstall from the truck hitch hydraulically, using its own lift cylinder.  No external lifting device shall be required to install and uninstall the plow from the truck hitch.

 

For ease of maintenance and to minimize stocking of cylinders and spare parts, the plow shall utilize 3 identical hydraulic cylinders to accomplish both reversing and lift.

 

The hydraulic cylinders shall be 4” diameter bore, 2” diameter rod, and minimum 15.13” stroke.  The cylinders shall have nitride cylinder rods for corrosion resistance and chip resistance.

 

To minimize maintenance issues, the cylinders shall be single-stage, non-telescoping.

 

To optimize the discharge of snow, the plow reversing system shall be designed to allow for a full 35 degrees of rotation in both left and right directions, measured with the plow on the ground in plowing position.

 

Plow lift cylinder shall attach at each end with 1” diameter, cold-finished steel pins.

 

Plow shall include anti-drift bar, which may be installed when the plow is attached to the truck and in transport position.

 

The hydraulic reversing cylinders shall attach to the plow portion flat plate hitch and the reversing frame using single-piece cast or machined knuckles, which are designed so that the line of force of the cylinder travels directly through the axis of the pins which attach the knuckle to the hitch or reversing frame, regardless of reversing angle or plow position.  This ensures maximum strength of the attachment and prevents knuckle failures due to off-center loading.  The knuckles shall be 5.88” long and 3.25” across, and shall be attached at the top and bottom using 1” diameter pin assemblies with welded heads, which are each secured using (2) ½” Grade 8 bolts.  The hydraulic cylinder shall be secured to the knuckle on each end using a 1” diameter clevis pin.

 

The plow shall come standard with a 1000 psi crossover relief valve, to help prevent plow damage due to sudden impacts.

 

The flat plate hitch plow portion serves to attach the plow to the truck.  It attaches to the flat plate hitch truck portion at the rear, and to the upper and lower arm assemblies, reversing cylinders, and lift cylinder at the front.

 

Flat plate hitch plow portion shall include a main plate measuring 44 x 33 x .63”.  It shall include (2) welded outer vertical supports measuring 4 x 30 x 1” thick, with drilled holes for attachment of the upper and lower arm assemblies using 1.25” diameter cold-finished steel pins.  It shall include (2) welded inner vertical supports measuring 2.5 x 29 x .50” thick.  The inner and outer vertical supports shall be joined by a total of (4) welded horizontal braces measuring 2.5 x 6 x .50” thick.

 

Shall include a center structure made of (3) pieces of 3x3x.38” square tubing welded together, extending 12” above the top of the main plate, and fully welded to the outer vertical supports, inner vertical supports, and main plate.  Each tube joint shall be braced in the back with a welded brace plate measuring 2.25 x 4.83 x .38”.  The center tube of the structure shall include (2) mounting ears measuring 6.63 x 4.77 x .75” thick, for attachment of the plow lift cylinder.

 

Shall include (2) cylinder mounting bars, measuring 2.75 x 19.25 x 1” thick, spanning between the inner vertical supports.  These shall be braced with a vertical center brace measuring 2.5 x 6 x .50” thick.

 

Outside of the outer vertical supports, (2) reversing stops shall be mounted, that are formed of 1” diameter cold-finished round bar, 34” long, rolled into a smooth arc.  This reversing bars serve as mechanical stops to limit the reversing angle of the plow and protect the reversing cylinders from damage.   Each reversing bar is welded to a support plate measuring 10.09 x 30 x .50” thick.  Each support plate is braced by a total of (4) .50” thick gussets, (3) of which pass through slots in the support plate to brace it in both directions.

 

On the back of the flat plate hitch plow portion, (2) 4.72 x 4.63 x 1” thick hooks serve to attach the plow portion and truck portion of the hitch together at the upper end.  Each hook is welded to a 3.5 x 6 x .75” thick attaching bar, which is in turn welded to the main plate.   Each hook is welded to the attaching bar using a minimum of 17” linear inches of weld, and each attaching bar is welded to the flat plate using a minimum of 13” linear inches of weld, to ensure that the hooks will remain secured even in the most severe plowing conditions.

 

The flat plate hitch plow portion includes (2) mounting ears, measuring 4 x 10.25 x 1” thick, which serve to secure the plow portion and truck portion of the flat plate hitch together at the lower end.  For ease of plow engagement, the design of the mounting ears allows for a horizontal misalignment of 1.75” in either direction.  Within this range, the two portions will be automatically guided together into a centered position as the truck pulls forward.  Each mounting ear is braced at the top and the bottom by full-length, .50” thick welded gussets for severe-duty service.

 

The plow portion and truck portion flat plate hitch shall be secured at the lower end using (2) 1.5” diameter cold-finished attaching pins.  The pins shall be engaged and disengaged using a spring-loaded mechanism operated with a single lever.
