Snow Plow Trip Springs

Snow Plow Trip Springs

Steel Trip Springs for Western, Fisher, Meyer, & Diamond Snow Plows

Trip springs are those large springs you see on the rear of the snowplow blade. These springs serve a similar purpose akin to the shock absorbers in your car’s suspension. Your car’s suspension is designed to absorb the shock felt in road’s surface imperfections so that the force does not travel through the chassis and into the cabin, where it could upset the car’s tracking, cause ill-handling, and make for an overall unpleasant ride. Trip springs on a snowplow absorb the impact from a solid object--the thick mound of snow in the street--towards a moving and pushing object, which would be the snowplow blade and the truck on which it’s attached. It is designed so that the plow has some flex and give; the more rigid a surface, the more vulnerable it is to vibration and shock impact damage. Trip springs aid in durability of the plow and truck and also provide stability and balance of the plow blade. Broken, worn, or missing trip springs can cause a myriad of damage to the road surface, the plow, and the truck so it is absolutely important that these components are in prime shape.
