Martin Engineering Redesigns Tail Protection Device

Re-engineered V-Plow HD achieves the gains with no compromise in performance.
New V-plow Design is lighter, offers safer handling

Martin Engineering has redesigned one of its most popular tail protection devices to be a lighter weight, modular unit delivered in a compact package for improved safety and convenience. 

The re-engineered V-Plow HD achieves the gains with no compromise in performance. 

Tail pulley protection is essential to efficient conveyor operation, but because of their size, the components can be cumbersome to ship and install. With other designs, the unit is typically delivered with mounting equipment in a large box that can pose a logistical problem to both air and ground transport, due to the weight and size.

The re-engineered design is a package that fits most local delivery trucks and can be easily carried by workers to sites that may have accessibility issues, with the components assembled as they are installed to reduce the risk of injury.
