On Monday, Fisher Engineering released some exciting news
for anyone with a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 who is looking for a new snowplow. After some
very thorough and extensive testing, the engineers at Fisher are confident that
their snowplows are compatible with the new enhanced electronic steering
systems in the 2013 Dodge 1500’s.
The Fisher lab testing consisted of “worst case scenario” vehicle
and snowplow electrical load testing in addition to dynamic braking and handling
testing. According to Fisher, the 2013 Ram “performed flawlessly and has proven
itself as a capable plow vehicle” even under extreme conditions and maximum loads.
Although the majority of the 2013 1500’s changes lie beneath
its skin, Ram subtly tweaked the truck’s styling for some freshness. The grille
is taller and the front bumper is new, and previously optional quad halogen
headlights are now standard across the 1500 line, as are LED taillights.
Moreover , power rack-and-pinion steering helps maintain
directional stability at highway speeds and provides a tighter turning diameter
for parking maneuvers. Finally, the 2009-13 Ram 1500 continues to meet all
FMVSS/CMVSS safety standards regarding air bag deployment and crash worthiness
based on testing.
If you want to see Fisher Engineering products in person,
they will be exhibiting in booth #1834 at the 2013 APWA International Public
Works Congress & Exposition in Chicago, IL. The Expo runs from August 25–28.
