Equipment: Plow Trucks

Snowplows are among the most important equipment in an agency’s winter operations toolbox. While snowplow research has traditionally focused on plow blades, in recent years snowplow conspicuity has emerged as another important research area, with agencies examining the safety benefits of making plow trucks more visible to motorists using lighting and reflective tape. Preventing corrosion is another area where research has shown benefits, as protecting plows from the effects of deicers can extend their service life.
