Common Snow Plow Accessories & Benefits

Created August 18, 2016

Accessorizing your plow is one of the best, most affordable ways to increase efficiency and reduce damage (both to your plow and your client’s property). It’s not quite like getting a brand new plow, but it’s close.

Blade Wing Kit

Increase your plow’s carrying capacity by adding a pair of blade wings. They quickly bolt on to your plow, extending the plowing width between 12 and 21 inches. To capture more snow, blade wings extend forward at an angle between 35 and 60 degrees. It’s easy to understand why these add-on tools are so popular!

Curb Guard Kit

Curbs can come out of nowhere, and before you know it, you’ve damaged the outside edge of your plow. These guards fasten tightly to the blade and are made of abrasion-resistant material. Some guards feature design elements that protect the curb as well.


Snow flying over the top of your plow onto your windshield can reduce your visibility, especially with dry powdery snow and extra windy conditions so deflectors that fasten to the top of the blade are a wise investment. Available in rubber or steel, deflectors are easy to install and one of the fastest ways to increase visibility, which provides a safer and more enjoyable ride. They also give the plow a powerful, professional look.

SnoFoil® Deflectors

With its rigid design and more aggressive forward curve, SnoFoil® deflectors, available in poly or steel, increase the snow rolling capacity of your plow while keeping snow off your windshield.

Shoe Kit

Gravel roads, dirt roads or heavily faulted pavement can grab at your blade, leading to uneven wear. An easy-to-install shoe kit lets you easily raise the blade height to clear gravel and uneven surfaces with minimal plow damage, while extending the life of your cutting edge. When you are plowing a hard, flat surface like asphalt or concrete, just raise or remove the shoes so the cutting edge scrapes the pavement clean.

Blade Guide Kit

Even in ideal conditions, an experienced and skilled operator can have a hard time keeping track of the sides of the blade. Blade guides provide a visual reference, and mark the blade edges with a highly visible, reflective indicator. This makes it easier to line up the blade with curbs and steer it clear of obstructions.
