Pro-Tech Develops New Steel Trip Edge IST Sno Pushers

Sat July 29, 2006 - National Edition

Pro-Tech Manufacturing and Distribution has introduced its latest tool for snow and ice removal, the IST Sno Pusher. IST stands for Ice Scraping Technology and was created as the first steel trip edge designed for Sno Pushers to incorporate the longevity and limited moving parts of rubber edge pushers. This urethane based technology ushers in a new generation of steel trip edges that do not require springs or hinges, which are very susceptible to malfunction, according to the manufacturer.

The design of the IST Sno Pusher incorporates extended wear shoes for a balanced, even push along with a modified angle in the moldboard. These two features combined with the urethane tripping mechanism provides a loaded torque on the steel edge that ensures the most effective ice scraping ability and a safe, consistent tripping mechanism, according to the manufacturer.
