Full Moldboard Trip Video.f4v
Obstructions and obstacles are a part of snow plowing. They come in all
sizes and shapes, from manhole covers and curbs to frozen snow banks and
everything in between. Hitting something covered by snow is almost
inevitable. This reality of snow removal requires snow plow manufacturers
to design and build in features that protect the truck and the plow from
By definition, Blade tripping is the rotational movement of an element of
the snowplow blade system in reaction to impacting an obstacle. Blade
tripping is typically offset by some type of spring mechanism. The purpose
of Blade Tripping is to protect the snow plow and vehicle from excessive
forces which might result in damage to the snow plow or truck. At slower
vehicles speeds, the tripping action may be less pronounced, but the
inertia of the vehicle will often allow the snow plow to clear the obstacle
anyway -- either way, the vehicle and the plow are protected from damage.
Two things reduce the energy of the impact to the vehicle and operator and
snow removal equipment, the tripping mechanism and pressure relief valves.
Pressure relief valves utilize hydraulic cylinders which are able to absorb
some of the energy produced by the impact. Working in tandem, the valves
and the tripping mechanisms provide protection during the snow removal
Understanding the importance of protecting valuable snow removal equipment,
BOSS Snowplows has outfitted its plows with various tripping capabilities.
Some of our products have tripping moldboards, in which our entire
moldboard structure rotates to provide the protection. Other straight blade
models feature Tripping Cutting edges, in which just the cutting edges
BOSS V-plows are designed with Full Moldboard Tripping. They are designed
to trip in any position that a plow operator will use them in, including
the "V", "straight" and "scoop" positions -- in other words, in any
position. The attached video, recently filmed with professional, high-speed
cameras gives you an excellent view of the BOSS V-plow tripping moldboard
tripping over obstacles at various speeds. Notice how the impact is
absorbed before it gets to the vehicle and driver? Even at higher speeds,
those typically used by snow plow drivers, the driver's body is impacted

This was a tricky chase! I didn't know where to start... I heard this plow
extra was on its way to Brunswick on the scanner. When we got to Brunswick,
they said on the scanner they were going back west. That worried me a bit
because when I heard that, we were still on the Interstate and didn't know
if we'd make it in time. We made it to Grant Road with a few minutes to
spare. After Grant Road, it got a bit harder becasue I am not too familiar
with the Brunswick/Freeport area. The traffic was slow through there which
made it harder to keep up, too. We caught up to it again at Mill Road and
had seconds to spare! After that, we went to Intervale Road where we met
the Empty Oil Train.
*Note: Mill Road was shaky becasue we made it as soon as the crossing
At Intervale Road, the Empty Oil Train took the mainline and passed the
snow plow that was on the siding. The plow came through after the oil train
The second location is Mill Road in North Yarmouth, ME and the third is
Intervale Road in New Gloucester, ME.
*Thank you to my dad for driving me around and helping take some video
while I took photos. He took the video at Mill Road and Intervale Road
