Down Pressure Springs

Down Pressure System

The conditioner down pressure system is comprised of three important pieces; the blade bar down pressure springs, the lift bar down pressure hydraulic system and the lift bar yokes and springs. Each of these items works together to produce the ability to truly shave the ice, not just scrape off the free standing snow.

The lift bar hydraulic system provides for constant loading of the conditioner onto the ice to provide a stable and secure shaving platform.
The blade bar down pressure springs eliminate blade chatter.
The lift bar yokes and springs allow for additional performance in the conditioner to lift bar connection.
