Schuyler Rubber Company, launches its new durable snow blades, the 911SP withstands repetitive use with minimal risk of damage to airport lighting, signage and surfaces on runways and taxiways. In addition to high durability, the blades feature Schuyler’s T-track system for fast, easy mounting and changeouts to snow plows and wheel loaders, which shortens service downtime.
Schuyler’s 911SP withstands more wear than molded rubber blades. The blade is made of recycled rubber and features reinforced nylon fabric throughout the blade to ensure its integrity. The manufacturer offers similar blades for the solid waste industry, which extends the life of the blade by a 2-to-1 ratio. And the 911SP is denser than molded blades at least 50 percent more in volume which extends wear life and reduces changeouts.
Since the blade is made from recycled rubber, there is less impact on the runway and safety fixtures than with steel blades. For instance, the operator can lower the rubber blade to the ground and drive forward because the rubber slides over runway lights and surfaces without damaging the lights or chipping the concrete.
Schuyler designed the 911SP for quick servicing once they become worn. The blade features the manufacturer’s innovative T-track mounting channel, which allows it to slide into position on a snow plow blade or wheel loader bucket. Then the equipment operator or on-site mechanic uses an adjustable or air-powered wrench to secure the blade. Schuyler includes all mounting hardware with each blade.
The 911SP fits a majority of snow removal equipment, and Schuyler can customize the blade to fit customer specifications. For instance, customers might opt for multiple shorter blades to fit large snowplows and/or wheel loaders to minimize maintenance time.
