New Snow Blades for Compact Machines

ANBO Manufacturing has a new generation of spring-trip snow blades designed for smaller, lighter machines. The company offers several options and features with its WorkPro Series, according to company president Chris Newman. 

ANBO snow bladeThe blades can be tailored to the customer’s specific requirements for machine size and horsepower. The blades are lightweight (245-350 lbs.) and can be offered in a broad range of widths from 3-ft. to 8-ft to accommodate a variety of machines and tasks. WorkPro blades come standard with a 25-in. high mold board and a 5-position manual adjustment for angles up to 30 degrees left and right.  The blade is available with hydraulic angle as well. Anyone purchasing the manual blade can upgrade the same blade with the hydraulic kit. If the machine does not have a third function for hydraulics, ANBO can supply a diverter valve to allow full hydraulic function.

A high-carbon steel replaceable cutting edge comes standard, but the blade can be fitted with a rubber cutting edge for softer surfaces, driveways and parking lots. Spring-trip tension can be varied by adjusting the number of springs that are installed.  The blade comes standard with two springs for typical snow plow use, but a third spring can be easily added making the WorkPro ideal for gravel and road work.  All WorkPro models come standard with abrasion resistant skid shoes and can optionally be fitted with box ends and marker flags.

The series has a wide range of standard mounts. In addition ANBO will customize mounts to fit any tractor, loader or skid steer.  ANBO technicians will set up the blade to ensure that is ready to hook up and go to work immediately.
