HINIKER CLAIMS that its new snowplow provides top snow-clearing performance. The 9000 series plow features a high-clearance, trip-edge design for more protection on its V-plows. The pinch-free pivot point is 9 in. above ground level, which provides more protection from higher obstacles. Each side of the plow trips independently.

The plow is constructed of high-tensile steel with 12 laser-cut ribs to provide extra strength. The moldboard is 30 in. tall and is covered with a low-friction, high-density polyethylene surface that is corrosion free and dent resistant. A joystick controller handles all functions and may be mounted in a cab or hand held. The plow is equipped with the Hiniker Quick-Hitch system.
