Main advantages

  • Larger and faster
  • For large surfaces
  • Robust and reliable


The RPS VL snow plough is designed especially for higher working speeds for clearing airport areas. Segments are designed to lift the snow higher, which ensures a more effective removal of snow. We offer a wide range of RPS VL snow plough options, including the installation of folding side wings to increase the ploughing width while reducing the transport width, the DNO system that allows for a larger turning angle and adjustment of tilt angle to the surface, as well as a wide range of additional equipment.

Plough protection system

A proven and reliable triple safety system is based on the connection between the segment and the support frame in combination with pre-loaded springs and oscillating links, support skates or wheels and hydraulic anti-impact safety system. Oscillating links make it easy to pass extremely high obstacles. If the blade on the segment hits the edge of a shaft or another obstacle on the road, the plough segment moves backwards and up, and the spring on the segment creates a certain force that ensures a constant contact of the blade with the surface. After passing an obstacle, the segment automatically returns to the operating position.

Installation and mounting options

In addition to standard fixing plates and a three-point hitch, we also offer an option for installation on various types of vehicles or working machines. In the design and construction phases, we always follow all standards and ensure that mounting or demounting of the plough is quick and simple.

Drive and control

The plough is hydraulically operated via a control lever and/or an LCD colour display from the vehicle cabin. The hydraulic system on the plough consists of reliable proven components. The snow plough may be driven by a plough-mounted electro-hydraulic system (EHS) or a hydraulic unit of the vehicle. EHS is a simple solution for controlling the plough on vehicles that do not have their own hydraulic unit.


The RPS VL has Vulkollan-polyurethane blades attached under the segments, a wear-resistant material that does not damage the surface. If desired, blades made of other materials can be installed.
