Plows Unlimited carries many items to help keep you and those around you safe.

    Most companies like to say, “Safety is our #1 concern!” The truth is however most companies address safety last, if at all. Safety does not help them meet deadlines.
    Safety does not put money in the bank. But it can keep from having an extreme amount flowing out for a very stupid, very expensive mistake because safety was not the number one concern. However Safety is very important, and should be addressed at all times. The following is a true story of why safety is so very important.

The plow hitch in the up position.

    Some time ago, I was working for a facility that had just gotten a new plow on a 4800 International. I was working in the shop alone. The hitch was supposed to tilt forward after removing two pins. It was only suppose to tip forward a few inches, in order to provide room for the hood to open. But when the second pin came out, the hitch, along with the 1” by 6” push bars, lift arm, and lift cylinder, were free to fall to the ground and to tip forward.

This is a lot of steel to fall on the mechanic. And that is exactly what happened. Fortunately the hitch lift arm dug into the concrete. This left a small triangle of space, that I was trapped in, but I was alive. I was laying on my side, and the apparatus’s fall was cushioned by my upper body. I thought “O.K. what do I do now?” I am hurt. I can not lift over half a ton of steel.
    This was the real live scenario; have no radio, no cell phone, and no one could hear me. I started to wiggle and squirm and after quite so time, I managed to free myself. I can only approximate that I was there about twenty or thirty minutes. (That was a bad day at the office.)
    That was several operations ago, and I am a fraction of my former self.
It is easy to see that any one of several safety procedures or equipment could have prevented or minimized my injuries. The company always said “Safety is our # 1 concern!”
    “Safety is our #1 concern!” is more than a slogan. By making “safety your #1 concern!’ you save injuries; you save lives.
