    (NECN: Anya Huneke, Williamstown, VT) - Vermont is experimenting with a new snow plow. The state's new 'TowPlow' leased, for now hit the road Friday.

    It's basically a snow plow times two: A trailer behind the truck carries an extra plow which extends out to the side.

    The TowPlow is also equipped to disperse salt or salt brine over two-plus lanes of traffic-- which cuts in half the number of times the trucks need to pass over the road.
