It’s a Snow Thing – Jordan Spreader

I’ve posted plenty of plows on Daily Diesel Dose before of all shapes and sizes but I think it’s safe to say none have had a wing like this one. The first thing to catch your eye is the enormous V-Plow up front but that is quickly eclipsed by the massive steel platted wings on either side of the rig. An on-board Detroit Diesel generator provides power for the hydraulics and other systems while a locomotive attaches to the rear of the machine for momentum.  At first I thought this was a in house created machine but a quick Google search of its number reveals this is Jordan Spreader. Designed to do the work of an army of men the Jordan not only breaks through snow and ice but can be used to cut back banks and spread gravel. A machine for all seasons. Click here for more information if you are so inspired you can click here to see the spreader in action.
