Snow removal machines offer unique configurations

The four popular machines used for snow removal must have certain important features to be adequately prepared for the season: wheel loaders, compact wheel loaders, backhoe loaders and skid steers.

Wheel loaders and compact wheel loaders are machines with many purposes. They easily move large quantities of ice as well as snow because of their power. With large, floor-to-ceiling windows, there is added visibility and a higher vantage point. These machines have pushes, snowplows, snow blowers, buckets and salt dispensers available as attachments.

Backhoe loaders have torque, which is important for handling heavy, wet snow in extreme weather and road conditions. These machines have multiple attachments, such as sweepers, blades, blowers and snow pushes. They can lift snow to form it into stockpiles. Many trucks use these loaders as snow removal machines.

Skid steers are popular among snow removers. These machines have heat inside their enclosed cabs and feature heated air-ride seats. There is a wide range of attachments, such as brooms, snow pushes, blades, low profile buckets and standard and high-flow snow blowers. These are ideal for areas that have a lot of snow fall, especially if users apply a radial-lift skid steer with a vertical configuration.
