I-66 Sno-Plow with Folding Moldboard

Scraper designed for interstate systems - combines maximum clearance and high-speed operation!

The Root I-66 Sno-Plow with “folding moldboard" was designed and developed to solve the problems of snow removal on our modern “high-speed" interstate systems and in massive traffic conditions. The folding moldboard provides maximum blade clearance (with the blade in retracted “fold-up" position) while at the same time providing greater snow depth capacity and a more vertical “angle of attack" against the plowed surface.

The underbody location of the blade unit on your truck provides better operator visibility and allows high-speed operation, to keep up with the flow of traffic on today's highways. The folding moldboard concept makes it possible to use a good working depth blade (20") while at the same time providing greater clearance. Four large cushion springs provide blade protection against road surface obstructions. The vertically operated blade is designed so that it may be used with carbide blades.
