The lateral snow plough OZ-S is designed for snow removal on multi-lane roads. Importantly, it operates as a complement to a front-mounted snow plough enlarging a clearance width. Therefore, for maximum efficiency during each passage the OZ-S should be used in addition to the OZ-A/S  (click HERE to read more). As a result,  the clearance width expands up to 5,7 m.

The ploughing width can be adjusted continuously, which makes it easier to remove snow from difficult places like roundabouts or stops. An additional advantage of side-mounted plow when clearing snow from highways is the ability to fold the plow and drive through narrow passages.

The OZ-S side-mounted snow plough is equipped with an override system. Therefore, when an obstacle are hit, the spring-loaded bottom-trip override system keeps the moldboard upright while the cutting edge gives way. In the result, the remaining sections stay in their clearing position. 

Snow ploughs can be powered by an power pack or hydraulics of the vehicle on which it is mounted.
