Keep your blade in contact with the pavement with D-Force. D-Force improves scraping performance while backdragging by maintaining a consistent hydraulic downforce powered by a hydraulic accumulator. Available as an option on new truck plow purchases, this option allows the user to maintain constant hydraulic down force to improve scraping performance while backdragging. D-Force will be available for all new straight-blade truck plows and 8'2" and 9'2" DXT v-plows (excludes EXT, Trip-Edge, XT, HTX v-plows and Heavy-Duty plows) and will not be retrofittable to existing plows.
