Snowplow attaching and removal system
In order to design a better attaching system, Western Products surveyed plowers to find out what was most important to them. The overwhelming response was to make the on/off procedure simpler. Western engineers responded by developing the UltraMount System. Key features include a drive-in attachment; a pivot bar that rotates, allowing the drive-in points to remain level — even when the blade is not; and two receiver brackets on the vehicle that are easily removable for better off-season ground clearance.
