The “Coolest” way to Move Snow!
The Chinook Forklift Snowplow Attachment turns any size forklift into the “Ultimate” snow plowing machine.
The Chinook plow isn’t just a curved piece of steel mounted to the tips of the forks. It’s designed to move lots of snow, with NO worries of hitting obstacles such as Curb Stones or Manhole Covers. We built it rugged, with a Trip Edge blade that hinges back while the plow blade jumps up over the obstacle.
Load stresses are where they belong at the rear of the forks. You can see the quality, and we’ve included all the bells and whistles such as power or manual angle from the cab!
Power or Manual Angle – without leaving your seat!
Why haven’t you seen a snowplow on a forklift before?
You couldn’t drive a forklift outside in winter conditions, UNTIL NOW!
We’ve solved the traction problem.
The Solution? Tire Traction Screws (carbide tipped). Not only will you be able to plow a ton of snow, but you’ll be able to drive your forklift inside or out, year round. So, forget chains and say hello to a smooth ride as your tires grip the ice and snow.
More Reasons to Choose the Chinook Forklift Snow Plow
Pickup trucks have limited agility and visibility. And the more snow you get, the smaller your parking area becomes. Loader buckets fill and spill over, that means lots of trips and lots of fuel. Skid Steers with buckets are inefficient, but with a snow blade, now you’re getting somewhere. Still, the high revving jerky motion, we can live without.
Interestingly, fork trucks operate very similar to a bobcat. You sit up high with great visibility, overlooking the entire forklift blade. With smooth, dare we say, unmatched maneuverability. And because forklifts are not very wide, as you turn sharp, the rear wheels won’t be dragged through unplowed snow. Tough? They are more than tough and cruise through the snow, at a plenty fast pace. (As seen in our video) As a matter of fact, you’ll probably be done snowplowing as soon, if not sooner, as you would using anything else. Plus – they’re fun!
Gets Into Tight Spots
Pile it High!
Pivots Along the Ground
Handles Deep Snow
You’ve already got the expensive part: the forklift!
With the Chinook forklift snowplow, you can push snow way beyond the edge of your parking area, piling it as high as your forks will go. You can get in and out of areas you wouldn’t dream of with a pickup truck. And, it will make short work of those larger open areas, especially with the optional (clip-on) plow wings, turning the 7 foot plow into a 9 footer.
The Chinook plow is designed to work on any forklift with a lifting capacity of 1500 lbs. to 10,000 lbs., having solid or pneumatic tires, gas, diesel or electric.
