We can't keep it from snowing; 
  We can't catch it as it falls; 
     Anything shy of that, we can handle.

Other Equipment

One more important consideration when it comes to our equipment is that we own, rather than lease, a large percentage of our snow removal equipment. This means that this equipment is used almost exclusively for snow removal and will always be at our disposal when it is needed.  In addition to our salt trucks, here are some examples of the other equipment we own and utilize:One more important consideration when it comes to our equipment is that we own, rather than lease, a large percentage of our snow removal equipment.

0047End loaders and pusher blades

There are used together for moving large amounts of snow
or in large,open areas of parking lots.  We have pushers from 8 feet to 20 feet and the appropriate sized loaders with which to use them.  We almost exclusively use pushers with steel cutting edges in order to scrape better and decrease salt consumption.

These blowers can throw a tremendous amount of snow in a short amount of time. They are often used to relocate large piles of snow on-site off of paved areas and into large grassy areas or into retention ponds if appropriate.

These are used together for moving snow from areas that are too large and/or inefficient for pickup trucks to effectively plow.

Sidewalk machines

These are very effective in quickly clearing long expanses of sidewalk and/or wide walk areas.  They often utilize different attachments such as plows, brooms, and snow blowers




Pickup Trucks

All of our pickups are 4-wheel drive and equipped with Western plows.  Some are also equipped with a two-yard salter unit for use in smaller areas or on parking decks that are not accessible to our larger trucks.0011

 Semi Tractors with Lowboy Trailers

There are used to haul heavy machinery that is not road legal.  They allow us to move our equipment around as necessary rather than having to rely on others to do it for us.0064

Loader-mounted Snow Blowers

These blowers can also throw large amounts of snow.  Often used for much the same reason as the airport style blowers, they can be used in slightly smaller areas.
