SEVERE-DUTY PLOW

Freightliner Trucks says its all-new 114 Severe Duty (SD) platform equipped with a 14.5-ft elliptical dump body, 10-ft front plow, and belly scraper sports a  set-forward axle configuration and ground clearance package.

The snow plow-friendly hood incorporates a radiator-mounted stationary grille that allows the hood to be open when equipped with a variety of different front-frame-extension-mounted plow attachments. Optional under-hood access hatches are also available for day-to-day maintenance checks. Other features include extreme-climate thermal insulation, inside/outside engine air intake, with snow door and electronic control modules located inside the cab to protect them from the elements.

The 114SD SFA snow plow’s standard engine is the Detroit Diesel DD13 engine with 450 hp and 1650 lb ft of torque. The lightweight Cummins ISL and ISC will be available for the 114SD SFA in late 2011.

The 114SD SFA snow plow offers TEMs features that will decrease installation time, Freightliner says. The snow-plow cross member for wing-plow support eliminates the need for TEMs to cut into the chassis, also strengthening the wing-plow configuration on the truck. The clean back-of-cab is achieved by locating the SCR aftertreatment system under the step, and the 70-gal fuel tank with six-gallon DEF tank, and three batteries, are all packaged under the cab.

Freightliner’s new SmartPlex Electrical System also enhances the TEM experience, the company says. It allows SmartPlex flex switches and lamp modules to be installed in the overhead counsel with click-in, laser-etched plastic indicators that feature snow-plow-specific icons. These switches and lamps are easily programmed to each customer’s requirements through Freightliner’s ServiceLink software.
