SAY GOODBYE TO
Defend your driveway from the deepest drifts with the WESTERN® DEFENDER™ compact snow plow. Ideal for midsized pickups and SUVs, this plow knows a thing or two about how to get things done—and done right.
PLOW BLADE CONSTRUCTION
The reliable, 16-gauge, powder coated steel moldboard is 23½" tall and available in 6' 8" and 7' 2" widths for rugged snow plowing performance without the extra weight.
The DEFENDER™ snow plow comes standard with a high-carbon steel cutting edge that reduces wear and extends the life of the blade.
Six vertical ribs provide unmatched structural reinforcement, delivering exceptional torsional strength and rigidity to eliminate blade twisting.
The high-strength steel base channel provides extra support along the bottom of the plow blade.
The 1" diameter pivot bushing secures the plow in place, ensuring proper alignment and reducing stress on the overall plow assembly.
We manufacture our own hydraulic components to ensure the highest standards of quality and reliability, so that you get a hydraulics system that's not only fast and responsive, but that's built to last season after season.
Fully enclosed components are protected from the elements.
Hydraulic Scrape Lock holds the blade down for more efficient scraping and clean back dragging.
The two-spring trip blade protects your snow plow and truck when striking hidden obstacles.
Elastomeric bumpers reduce jarring and soften the blade return when tripping occurs, to extend the life of your truck and plow.
EASY ON / EASY OFF
A simple mechanical attaching system makes hooking up and removing your plow quick and easy.
Attaching the DEFENDER™ snow plow can be done quickly and easily by one person and without tools.
Simply drive into the attaching arms on the plow, then connect the two spring-loaded pins. Remove the stand, and finally, connect the electrical plugs.
Detaching the plow is just as easy. The receivers are detachable to maintain ground clearance.
When the plow is not in use, quickly maximize vehicle ground clearance with the removable receiver brackets. No tools required.
SECURITY GUARD™ Anti-Theft System
ULTRAFINISH™ BAKED-ON POWDER COAT
Pre-Punched Blades for Accessories
The blade is pre-punched for easy installation of accessories, providing a custom fit. The pre-punched holes also prevent damage to the powder coat that can sometimes occur when installing an accessory.
STEEL CUTTING EDGE
This 3/8" cutting edge fits the same hole pattern as the 1/4" cutting edge that comes standard on your blade from the factory. Made of abrasion-resistant, high-carbon steel, the 3/8" cutting edge gives your DEFENDER™ snow plow extra wearability by increasing the surface area at the point of contact.
Control the snow and always see where you're going with optional deflectors. Our 2-ply rubber snow deflectors include bolt-on steel plates to ensure proper positioning of the deflectors to keep your view clear and clean.
Go right up to the edge with bolt-on curb guards. Protect the outer edge of your snow plow from wear when plowing along sidewalks and curbs. Made of cast metal, each curb guard effectively protects the outer edge of the plow.
