The GL3000C Guidance Laser, by LaserLine Manufacturing, gives the operator a chance to see where his path will take the trailing edge of that wing plow, and let him or her avoid any potential obstacles in the way. The GL3000C mounts on the top of the truck cab, within a waterproof, hermetically sealed and dry nitrogen charged housing that contains the electronics generating an ultra-bright green laser beam shooting forward off the truck into the snow ahead.

Snow plowing can be a tough job for plow truck operators; that big blade mounted on the front of the truck makes for less visibility in already difficult conditions. Add a wing plow off the side of the truck to the mixture, and operators have a real problem to keep an eye on – especially when plowing roads that might have obstacles like cars and trucks set alongside.
