On October 4th, the Chicagoland area received the 3rd earliest snow in history. We saw frost this weekend, and some of us had to throw on a couple of added layers to stay warm. That got us thinking about the winter snow forecasts for Chicago and the Midwest. If you’re in the snow biz you’ve been thinking about winter for a bit. Here are what some weather experts are thinking for the upcoming season predictions:
The Used Equipment Spotlight is a recurring segment where we highlight featured items from our used inventory.
For this spotlight we are highlighting some New Holland large capacity wheel loaders from our inventory that have been specially priced. Don’t allow the snow to pile up this winter. These units are priced to move!

Kubota extended their Gear Up and GO sales event until the end of December. This means select lines of Kubota equipment can be financed for 60 months with 0% interest and no down payment!* Five years is a lot of time to be earning money with a new tractor, wheel loader or excavator, so you’ll have no trouble paying this machine off.
We’d usually tell you about how great Kubota machines are, but we’ve talked about them many, many, many times before. We like ‘em, sell ‘em, rent ‘em, sell parts for ‘em and we service ‘em (but not THAT often – c’mon, they’re Kubotas). If you want to learn more about why Kubota is a great long term investment please give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you take advantage of this great offer. If you missed it in early fall, take advantage of it now. Continue reading →
We use Fluid Film on our rental equipment. Sometimes our machines go out for a full season and we’ll get a machine back that doesn’t look so good. That’s why we use rust protection, which we apply to areas on a machine that get a lot of exposure – areas like the undercarriage and the wheels and axles. What we found out was that the time it takes to add Fluid Film to a machine does pay off. Snow removal is hard on our equipment and this helps keep it looking new and protected from damage. We use the stuff, our Parts Department sells the stuff, and our shop can apply the stuff if you need a hand. If you’re more of a DIY-er check out our “How To” video, starring one of our very own technicians:
Do you want to mow safer, faster and smarter than before on jobs that used to be considered dangerous and labor or time intensive? You have to see this product in action: the TRAXX™RF from Alamo Industrial. It’s a remote-control slope mower for safe mowing that’s nothing like you’ve ever seen. Check out some video that we shot of it in action:
The Safety Parka Keeps the Crew Warm, Dry and Seen on the Job.
This month we’ve got discounts on essential safety gear: this means everything from reflector vests all the way up to bomber jackets. It’ll be time to turn the clocks back soon which means low light on the job even earlier. Maintenance crews and emergency personnel need to be visible, so don’t skip on safety. If you buy now you’ll save 5% on any order, and if you spend over $130 you save 10%.
Beyond vests and bomber jackets, we’ve got hats, gloves and parkas all in the signature road construction green (the hats even come in orange) and with sizes from medium to 6XL we’ve definitely got you covered. Both the jacket and the parka are waterproof with elastic cuffs that keep out the cold. The bomber jacket has lots of pockets, including that important cell phone pocket, and a removable fleece liner. The parka has a sewn-in polar fleece lining, with detachable hood and sleeves. This is a good time to outfit your crew; you’ll be glad they’ll be warm and happy.
