ASR-22 Airport Runway Reversible Plow

Until recent years many airports had to use snow removal equipment which was "hand me downs" from either the city or county. In most cases it was already worn out and had been replaced by new equipment.

Today's airports including General Aviation Airports require equipment designed for airport use and not street or highway equipment.

The new ROOT ASR-22' plow was designed for runways and taxiways to get the job done faster. Why plow with an 8' cut highway plow when you can get a modern airport plow with a 20' blade!

The ASR-22 plow was designed for high speed operation in virgin snow to quickly move the snow from runways and taxiways to the side for removal by your snow blower. This plow was not designed to plow high banks at runway edge.
