Western Products, manufacturer of WESTERN snow removal and ice control equipment, introduces the new WESTERN DEFENDER compact snowplow. The DEFENDER is designed specifically to fit mid-size pickups and SUVs.

It features a high-strength, low-weight, alloy-steel blade, which is stronger and lighter than conventional steel. Six vertical ribs reinforce the blade, deliver exceptional torsional strength and eliminate blade twisting. A full-trip moldboard helps protect the plow and truck when encountering hidden obstacles.

“We wanted to give consumers a true WESTERN experience by providing a strong, effective plow, and that's what the DEFENDER is,” said Doug Clark, Product Manager for Western Products. “Just because you're plowing your own property doesn't mean you can't do it like a pro.”

New to all WESTERN plows in 2017—including the DEFENDER compact plow—are brighter, dual-bulb NIGHTHAWK™ halogen headlamps. Their longer beam pattern improves visibility, and the improved mounting system absorbs shock and vibration better.

The DEFENDER snowplow is packed with other features, including:

• 5" hardened-steel cutting edge, providing long-lasting performance and a clean scrape

• Scrape Lock, which provides the scraping performance of a larger plow without the extra weight

• Choice between CabCommand hand-held or joystick controls

Information on the DEFENDER compact plow will be available on the WESTERN website in May 2017
