Shaping your plough when you need and as much as you need

Unix snow plough can be used in 3 main configuration infinitely adjustable between them.

One-side straight plough: the shape of the mouldboard, combined with the override protection, allow a safe high speed working with the comfort and clearing results of a standard straight plough.

 Wedge plough configuration: the high and open profile of the mouldboard ensure an excellent evacuation of snow from the outline and makes easy clearing very large amount of snow. It is also ideal to operate in narrow passages because of the extremely compact dimensions when Unix is V shaped.

 Shovel plough configuration: this configuration it’s perfect to clean parking lots, squares or in every case it is not possible clear aside the snow, as in presence of narrow passages, crossroads or private driveway.

 

The best clearing result on soft and wet snow

A Unix snow plough shows is so effective thanks to NEOTECH 2S, the single-segment flexible scraper blade made from our specially designed neoprene “HD bi-shore”.

Neotech 2S features many advantages due to its flexible nature, such as clearing perfectly all the snow over the whole width or the ability to adapt to uneven surface profile and an exceptional working life.

An extremely low level of noise, very low vibrations transmission and up to 3 override protection make it ideal for urban clearing even at night without disturbance for local community.

 

The right operative configuration for each situation

The Unix double blade includes all the benefits of the Neotech 2S combined with a second, wear resistant, steel scraper blade.

With 2 different scraper blade available, and the capability to switch between them while working, Unix delivers the ultimate flexibility and efficacy regardless of the snow conditions.

The first scraper blade it’s perfect for soft or wet snow while the steel one can be used for hard or icy snow compacted on the road surface.

Because we care your safety the steel scraper blade it’s also protected from impact with an excellent override safety system, that helps you manage safely obstacles like sewer covers or kerbs.

 

 

The Polystone mouldboard

The Polystone merge corrosion resistance, improved sliding and shock absorption in an incredible material.

It’s synthetically made, able to resist to the lowest temperature without suffer from rigidity and it’s totally free from corrosion.

Similarly to the underneath of ski, this material helps ejecting out the snow using less power of the carrier vehicle while avoids sticking of the snow.

Moreover that special material it’s flexible and when it is hit by some stone or other foreign material it flex back and immediately returns in its original position without suffering from damage.

 

high strength and compact steel frame

Behind the Polystone mouldboard a sturdy and modern frame ensure high strength and torsion free movement.

The main frame connecting the wings to the lifting system tilt as a solid body avoiding any kind of torsion in tight bend especially over mountains roads.

Additionally the tilting system allow the plough to be free of clearing and following to the road profile while holding it parallel to the ground when raised.

Compactness given by optimized dimensions and the variable V plough concept makes Unix perfect to drive in tight space or cities compared to traditional snow plough.

 

 

Controlled processes, high-quality materials and innovative technical solution

The Polystone mouldboard combined with our high quality painting ensure a long lifespan while reducing maintenance costs.

All steel assembly are shoot blasted and powder-coated with a specific double layer treatment or galvanized.

The hydraulic pipes ends and the couplings are protected with a special wax whether hydraulic valves, which are subject to heat expansion, are treated with a specific painting cycle.

Whenever possible the consumption parts are engineered to minimize maintenance costs avoiding replacing the entire assembly but only the wearer part.

 

Electro hydraulic unit, duplicator valve and synchronous movement controls

Unix offer different driving system and option to help you get the best out of your winter road maintenance vehicle. We recommend using the vehicle hydraulic system whenever possible but, if the vehicle hasn’t it, you can count on our powerful electro hydraulic unit that comes with a comfortable and ergonomic joystick. If the vehicle hasn’t all the required hydraulic functions Unix offers you various kind of valves for circuit duplication and synchronous movement of both the wings.

system

The patented brine injection system for Bucher snow plough

MBS it’s revolutionary system that uses a reliable and cost-effective brine injection system to increase the plough clearing capacity and, in meantime, protect the surface from the new snow to stick again.


MBS increase clearing efficacy, extend time require between each clearing cycle and make possible to reduce spreading dosage leading to simplest operative procedure and huge savings even during severe winter season with intense snow falls.


The installation is user friendly and does not require special equipment, a simple and common tank is the only requirement to transport and feed the brine to plough.
