Steel or poly edge: which one you got? They each have advantages, but when the cards are down it’s hard to argue against a poly edge. We want you to know that we’ve got what some customers call the best cutting edge around. That might sound like a small thing to brag about, but if you’re in the snow plowing biz your cutting edge is where your money meets the road. A little extra cash spent on a cutting edge can go a long way towards a better plowing experience. Continue reading
Having trouble getting your hands on a good snow equipment rental? You’re not alone. The repeated winter storms have put a premium on skid steers, wheel loaders and utility vehicles so finding a quality machine is hard to do these days. Lucky for you we have a Kubota RTV1100 that just became available for rent!
The RTV1100 is the perfect size for certain jobs. Cities, schools and park districts love these machines, but just about anyone can find a use for it. It seems like everyone who uses an RTV comes away from it with good things to say – they’re easy to use and built to take a beating. The six foot blade we have on the unit is the perfect size for a utility vehicle and it’s controlled from the cab and features hydraulic angling and a rubber deflector that keeps that snow down.
This RTV can be rented by the day, week or month so give our rental team a call at any of our locations! Visit the utility vehicle section of our rental page for current rental rates. Continue reading
The snow keeps piling up, there’s more on the way and all your machines are out in the field. Sound familiar? There’s a simple, cost-effective solution to that problem: renting. Give your snow fleet a temporary boost by renting our Horst extendable snow wing blade. It’s a unique snow attachment we carry that has the ability to hydraulically extend from 9 feet to 14 feet wide (keyword: hydraulically – meaning you don’t have to leave the cab). The wings have 180 degrees of swing, allowing you to switch between a blade and a pusher, creating versatility that helps in commercial applications like parking lots. A 30 inch moldboard and 35 degree angling in both directions gives you great pushing ability and lets you windrow snow helping you plow more efficiently.
Rent it with our New Holland T4050 tractor for the complete package. For our rental rates, call us or visit our website. The Horst blade rates can be found under specialized equipment and the T4050 under tractors. Book your rental today and be ready the next time snow hits. Continue reading

Green Industry Pros ran an article this week with tips for buying a snow plow and though the article is geared towards pick-up truck plows most of the information is relevant to plows made for skid steers and wheel loaders as well. The same basic tenants apply to both styles when making your purchasing decision so the article is definitely worth a read for anyone getting into the snow business. You can read the full article over on their website, but if you’re short on time here’s a (very) brief highlight of their excellent advice: Continue reading

What’s your favorite way to move snow? Are you a fan of blades? Pushers? Just a plain old loader bucket? How many of you have tried out a high-capacity snow bucket?
