For years, many road commissions have desired both one way and V plows for each of their trucks. Shrinking budgets have often made this difficult. With Root’s unique VX plow you can virtually have two plows for the price of one.
The Root VX plow, with its dual functions of normal high speed snow removal and the ability to open roads which have drifted closed, eliminates the need for a two truck operation.
When money is tight, versatility is a must. The Root VX snowplow delivers the versatility you need.
