Must Be The Season of the Wolf: SnowWolf At Martin Implement!

Winter taketh, and giveth, plentifully…IF you’re fully equipped with SnowWolf!

SNOWWOLF: RUNNIN’ WITH THE PACK!
One of the things we love most about SnowWolf is the tireless innovation they bring to their specialty. Their full line of equipment is all designed to do one thing, and do it incredibly well: MOVE SNOW OUTTA THE WAY! And when you’re a member of the pack that gets up wayyy before the light of dawn — so everybody else in town can get where they’re going — you must have equipment that works reliably, and fast. With SnowWolf, you have several great options that help you keep your blade or pusher on the ground, moving the white stuff!  

SNOWWOLF SPECIALIZES — SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO
Another huge benefit of SnowWolf equipment is VERSATILITY. Whether you’re running with a tractor, skid steer, backhoe, or a compact or full-size wheel loader, SnowWolf has the blades, pushers, wings, edges, and tires you’ll need make the job go smooth as a fresh 4″ coat of Aspen powder.  We put together a great little highlight video for you of some of our favorites machine and blade combos, and you can check it out right here! 

Now let’s take a quick overview of the current SnowWolf lineup here at Martin Implement:

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

New Holland T4050 tractor with Horst extendable snow blade

Rent a blade and tractor combo at daily, weekly or monthly rates

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
