Some parts of the United States and Canada measure their annual snowfall in feet, rather than in inches, and it’s costing us. Holes in city roads, on highways and near businesses can impact the average person’s budget by more than $300 a year, double that in larger cities.
Costly repairs, wear and tear to vehicles, and bulky snowplows that seem to have a talent for plowing in cars right before people have to leave for work: this is winter in America.
What is exciting is that a compact tractor snow pusher can be used to great effect in businesses and residential areas. There are often surfaces such as sidewalks and mixed-use green areas that are highly sensitive to the steel blades that are typical of heavy duty snow plows.
While the snow will always need to be moved for customer safety and easy access to businesses, many organizations are facing hidden costs in the spring, after all the snow is gone. A compact tractor snow pusher can make all the difference in a customer’s experience.
When it’s time to evaluate snow plow equipment, here are some things to look for:
- Wear Shoes. When shoes are less than a quarter inch from top to bottom, it’s time to look into replacing them.
- Paint. Some paints can show wear and tear more than others. Look for paint that is approved for heavy or industrial use.
- Rubber Cutting Edge. When wear is obvious on all surfaces, a replacement should be obtained as soon as possible.
A compact tractor snow pusher can get into tough-to-access spots on residential or commercial properties. A steel snow pusher is like a classic car: reliable, but worth even more with smaller, more compact snow pushers that can achieve good clearance under obstacles.
In a country where billions are spent each year on snow removal and on damages caused by snow, having a variety of snow removal technologies can only be a good idea.
