Oshkosh Snow Blower Chosen by Norway Sandefjord Airport

OSHKOSH, WIS. (September 28, 2009) – Oshkosh Airport Products Group, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), has delivered and placed into service at Sandefjord Airport, Torp an Oshkosh® H-Series™ high-speed blower snow removal vehicle. The unit is the first ever Oshkosh airport snow removal vehicle on duty in Norway.

“This initial sale in Norway is representative of our commitment to the Oshkosh global product strategy,” said Tim Raupp, Oshkosh Corporation Airport Products Group president. “With its challenging snow conditions and importance as a regional hub, Sandefjord Airport, Torp is an ideal location to put into use the H-Series’ world-class performance and reliability.”

The Oshkosh high-speed blower features a 470 hp chassis engine and a 700 hp dedicated blower engine that can throw as much as 5,000 tons (4,534 metric tons) of snow per hour. The blower’s unique hydrostatic-drive ribbon is driven independently from the impeller, allowing it to more effectively handle variable snow conditions.

Other notable features found on the Oshkosh H-Series chassis include all-wheel drive and proprietary ALL STEER® electronic all-wheel steering for unmatched maneuverability; safety interlocks with an emergency stop feature for attachments; Command Zone™ electronic LCD dash pod for at-a-glance operator information; a large, sound insulated cab with two full-sized seats to accommodate a supervisor/ training officer; and a panoramic view, large windshield with no corner posts.

For added flexibility, the H-Series chassis is engineered to seamlessly integrate with a variety of plows, scrapers, brooms and other attachments to give airports the adaptability to meet any snow removal challenge.

“We are confident that the H-Series performance in Norway will help generate further demand for the Oshkosh vehicle from other airports in the region,” Raupp added.

Sandefjord Airport, Torp (TRF), an international airport located south of Oslo, serves as a regional airport for eastern Norway. The airport is owned and operated by Sandefjord Lufthavn AS, making it the country’s largest commercial airport not owned by the government of Norway.

íÖveraasen AS, the Oshkosh sales agent for portions of Europe, will provide local service and support.
