Hello everyone, I am the district sales manager for Sno-Way in the West-Central District covering Michigan,Illinois,Indiana,&Kentucky. This is an awesome sight for discussion. If you have any questions regarding Sno-Way Products please let me know. I will try to answer all e-mail directly to me. I travel weekly so it may take some time to answer but I will answer. If you are planning to attend the APWA Snow Conference, our Marketing Manager Dwayne Shaufler will be in attendance. Thank you for allowing me to participate. For those of you who use Sno-Way, you will be pleasantly surprised with some changes we have made on the straight blade hydraulics for the year 2001. We will also be offering the former 18 series now labeled model ST with Down Pressure! One of the biggest changes will be our new control, which is hand held and eliminates the joystick and rocker controls. For added safety the hand held control will have an on/off button. The plug in out front will now be a push/pull connector elinimating the Deutch Connector which at times was very difficult to line up. We have incorporated a piece in our nosepiece to allow easier pin insertion, this can be retro-fitted to any Sno-Way plow, I will have details on this at a later date but cost for this change will not be heavy and could be done by the plow owner. Thank you for your time.
