AM 7000 APV Airport plough

This plough was especially designed for cleaning of airport runways as well as parking areas of airplanes. Unique feature of the plough is it's light weight and quite big width 7,0m, what is equal to ploughs used into road maintenance. APV 7000 is ideal to be installed to a tractor due its light weight. Such low weight of the plough is reached due to use of special modern alloys and materials. Such unique mass of the plough allows to reduce investments into maintenance fleet at least 2 times from the beginning.

Attachment of the wear blade to mother blade is done in very smart way, so that there are no any gaps between parts, what makes ploughing result much cleaner and decrease amount of needed anti-skid material (which one is very expensive). At the same time it influences for environment in positive way at airport area.

Wear blade of the plough is done from single piece but can be replaced by 1 person in short period of time. Material of wear blade is special type of polyurethane, resistant for friction and flexible enough to prevent destruction of special lights on runway surface. Lifetime of our PU wear blade is over 300h.
