The BOSS Snowplow is the first snowplow manufacturer to offer a custom-designed composite light optimized for snowplow use. The BOSS light package is unique in that it can easily be upgraded to an “HID” or High-Intensity Discharge Light Package. The HID option provides up to four times the light output of the typical snowplow light for unmatched nighttime visibility. Similar to daylight, HID lamps provide a light source that is whiter in color and projects a beam wider and farther out in front of the vehicle than typical halogen bulbs. Therefore, objects come into view sooner and are more noticeable.

Hiniker Co. introduces a new line of extreme-duty snowplows for 4wd pickup trucks. The HDX line of plows incorporates a number of design features to effectively handle the demands of wet, heavy snowfall. This product uses a split trip edge with a 9-inch high pivot point to provide protection from higher obstacles such as curbs and parking barriers. A high-density polyethylene moldboard is used to reduce friction and provide a corrosion-free plowing surface. A plow-mounted electric/hydraulic system provides power and a compact handheld joystick controller provides convenient control of all plow functions.

Meyer Products Inc. offers both polyethylene and steel snowplows; however, they recommend the Meyer Max polyethylene snowplow for those serious about plowing because it's more slippery, it's stronger and it won't rust. The slippery surface allows snow to roll off the plow instead of being pushed or caked on the front of the blade, saving wear and tear on your truck and money on gas. Polyethylene also resists punctures and dents.
