V60 84" V-Blade Snow Plow

I purchased this to run on a Bobcat 753, clearing snow from a 1/2 mile gravel driveway, and other concrete aprons and dirt roads on my rural property. The V-blade function gives me the ability to break drifts in the “V” configuration, sweep snow in tilt, push with the straight setting and scoop. The built in float and oscillation works well on gravel surfaces. I’ve found that the best way to run it is with the Bobcat boom floating, using the tilt to adjust cutting depth. The heavy duty construction is a must in the rough conditions that I work in. The only shortcoming that I’ve found is that the small center cutting edges obstruct the bottom grease fitting on the middle pin. I had to remove one piece to access it. This was aggravated by the fact that it attaches with standard non-locking hex bolts. Trying to remove the nut while holding the bolt head on the other side is near impossible. I’ll fix this by placing a tack weld on the bolt head next time I work on it. Hard to see how the manufacturer overlooked this. Overall, a well-built functional product.

V60 V-Snow Blade Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT WIDTH SHOULD I PURCHASE?

At minimum, the V60 V-Snow Blade Width at Full Scoop should be wider than your loader’s tracks or tires. Please refer to the spec table to see which models work for your skid steer.

WHY DOES VIRNIG USE A TRIP-EDGE INSTEAD OF THE FULL BLADE TRIP?

With full blade trip, when hitting a short obstacle such as a manhole cover or curb, the entire blade will roll over. Small objects will cause the skid steer to slow down and could make plowing more disruptive. Virnig uses trip-edges with a rigid moldboard to minimize these plowing interruptions while providing safety. Virnig V60 V-Snow Blades are designed to trip in all positions.

HOW DO I KEEP THE CUTTING EDGE FROM TRIPPING ON GRAVEL OR DIRT?

Because trip edge integrity is determined by down pressure, it is difficult to properly use your plow on unpacked dirt or gravel without destroying the surface. By using the machine tilt and arms to keep the blade slightly above the ground, you will build a base of hard packed snow and ice. Once the hard pack is set, down pressure may be applied. This is the most effective method to keep the edge from tripping.

When plowing on asphalt or concrete, raise or remove the plow shoes so the cutting edge will scrape as close to the surface as possible.

CAN I ADJUST THE TRIP EDGE TENSION OR CAN IT BE LOCKED OUT?

The tension is set by the springs and are non-adjustable. The edge cannot be locked out because if an object is hit hard enough the edge is designed to trip. Locking out the trip edge could damage the attachment, the skid steer, or worse the operator. Locking out the trip edge should never be done.

HOW DOES THE VIRNIG V60 V-SNOW BLADE FLOATING FRAME LINK AND OSCILLATION WORK?

The quick tach frame and knuckle plate are connected with two pins on the right and left side that allow the V60 V-Snow Blade to float forward and backward up to +/- 5 degrees. The knuckle plate and floating link frame are connected by a large pin that gives the V60 V-Snow Blade +/- 4 degrees of rotational oscillation. This system allows the V60 V-Snow Blade to travel across uneven areas and still maintain solid contact with the ground. This is best achieved with the skid loader quick tach angle in a neutral position to prevent premature wear with the wings in a forward position.

HOW DOES THE V60 V-SNOW BLADE CYCLE THROUGH POSITIONS?

The V60 V-Snow Blade uses hydraulic pressure relief valves to cycle through each position. The left side leads, and as it reaches the end of travel, hydraulic pressure will open the valves, allowing the right side to move. There are no electronics to replace, ensuring that the V-Snow Blade is simple to operate, less expensive to upkeep, and more adaptable than other V-Blades.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE V60 V-SNOW BLADE STRAIGHT LIKE A V60 ANGLE SNOW BLADE?

Yes it is. To get both blades into a straight blade configuration, fully extend the leading side (left wing) forward and extend the trailing side (right wing) about half way until it is straight. Then retract the leading side until it is also straight, matching the trailing wing. Other blade angle arrangements can be achieved by using this method.

CAN I REPLACE THE CENTER RUBBER SECTION OF MY CUTTING EDGE?

Virnig now uses metal style sections that will bolt in as a replacement for the rubber centers.

WHAT MAKES A VIRNIG V60 V-SNOW BLADE MORE DURABLE THAN ITS COMPETITION?

Virnig generally uses heavier cylinders, thicker moldboard steel, larger and thicker cutting edges, and built with more structural support.

CAN I USE THE VIRNIG V60 V-SNOW BLADE TO DOZE/GRADE DIRT?

No. Virnig recommends that you should never use it on anything other than snow.

WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?

Virnig uses NitroSteel® cylinder rods because they are a superior performing alternative to chrome plating. The finish offers improved corrosion resistance and better grease retention.

Chrome plated cylinder rods can flake or pit and destroy the seals or other internal components; resulting in downtime and expensive repairs.

A NitroSteel® rod will perform better and increase the service life of a cylinder, making it the cost-effective choice.
