For really high altitudes
The DPF, aka the Mountain Plough, is the development of the DPH high-throw diagonal plough. Similar in design to the DPH but raised from 1880 to 2300 mm, it also has a unique ejector design that provides the DPF with performance for the most extreme environments.
Like the model it’s based on, the unique design accelerates the snow out of the plough at high velocity. The snow is thrown high and a long way from the road surface. This means the plough leaves a minimal ploughed edge, which is otherwise a common phenomenon when using conventional ploughs. Even at low speeds, plough performance is more than satisfactory.
Like all Mählers products, DPF ploughs are built to be as safe as possible for their immediate surroundings, the plough operator and the vehicle, which is why the DPF has a spring-loaded release system at the base of the plough. The individually released cutter guards prevent damage to the plough and vehicle as well as changes in direction in collisions with protruding obstacles, or if the plough digs in to the road surface.
In addition to this, the parallelogram’s rotation cylinders have built-in shock valves that trigger in the event of a collision with an obstacle. The right side of the plough is clad in low-friction plastic to protect e.g. crash barriers.
Position lights and reflectors come as standard. It is possible to order the plough with reflectors to comply with regulations in the markets concerned.
Together, all of these safety features make DPF ploughs among the safest high-throwing ploughs on the market.
