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:

Winter is coming…Let Martin Implement Help You Cash In!

We’ve got the equipment, the tools, and the deals

WHEN IT SNOWS, WE’LL HELP YOU MAKE IT RAIN!
Sometimes customers will let the grass grow a little longer, and there are those days when the rain puts the kybosh on progress at the construction site.  But when it snows…NOBODY WANTS TO WAIT. Which is just one of the reasons why snow season can be so wonderfully lucrative. When your snow fleet is ready to rock, you can watch that purple stuff headed toward us on the radar map with a twinkle in your eye. Before the first one hits, you never know when it will. But around here, once it does…you know that the snow, sleet and ice will never seem to end.  

How sweet is that?

MARTIN IMPLEMENT HAS THE EQUIPMENT, THE TOOLS, AND THE DEALS
This winter, were not wasting any time serving up the full smorgasbord, with amazing snow-season lease deals on New Holland skid steers, or, for you bigtime pushers, Hyundai Wheel Loaders. Both deals enable you to plow-to-pay, and you keep the machine year-round, so you can earn 12 months of the year, while paying only five. Of course, you can also buy new or used at Martin Implement, and be assured you’re getting a high-quality machine, backed by our outstanding service team.

Hyundai Wheel Loader Snow Leases: Earn All Winter!

hyundai-snow-lease-and-financing-social

HYUNDAI SNOW LEASE: PAY AS YOU EARN!
This is one cool deal: Hyundai’s Winter Advantage Lease allows you to make scheduled payments during the snow season — with no required payments out of season. That means you can keep your Hyundai Wheel Loader all year round, but you only pay when the calendar says it’s snowing, and you’re making money!  This is a great way to get into a fully-loaded HL940 or HL955 wheel loader.

HYUNDAI WHEEL LOADERS LOVE SNOW 
There are a bunch of great reasons to put an HL940 or HL955 to work on the snow drifts this winter.  These machines have a big footprint and aggressive tread, which gives you superb traction control, and optimal pushing power. Both are powered by a Tier 4 Final Cummins engine: the 940 offers 156 hp, and a 3 cubic-yard standard bucket.  The 955 offers 197 horses, and a 3.7 cubic yard bucket. They’re both IDEAL for snow attachments too, with Z bar or parallel linkage, excellent lifting capacity, heavy counterweight for load stability — and of course auxiliary hydraulics are standard.

Winter is Coming: Seasonal Rentals at Martin Implement are Here!

There goes the sun…and we say…it’s all right!

WE HAD JOY WE HAD FUN…
Aye…but our season in the sun is almost over.  And truth be told, “pumpkin spice” time will be gone before you know it too! So now is definitely the time to start looking at options for beefing up your winter-weather fleet. The Martin implement Rental Team has several great machines and accessories for you to consider with SEASONAL rental options.

SEASONAL RENTAL? HOW DOES THAT WORK?
Glad you asked!  We offer great rates, and the base rates assume a minimum of a 4 month rental. There’s a maximum usage of 50 hours per month, and that amount can carryover month to month.  Use in excess of the allotted 50 hours per month is billed per hour. And if you have big plans for the winter, we have even bigger savings: the seasonal deal is even sweeter on 5 units or more.

OK, SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT…SKID STEERS:
Our base package is a New Holland L220 or Kubota SSV65 skid steer with heated cab, low-profile bucket, and WolfPaw high traction tires.

Product Spotlight: Hyundai HL940 Wheel Loader (Video)

Annnnnd…you put the load…right on me!  The Hyundai HL940 Wheel Loader. 

HYUNDAI: IT’S THE STEEL!
We’re going to kick this off with a direct quote from Hyundai’s own product literature, a fun little item that caught our eye right off the bat:

Hyundai construction equipment is manufactured with the highest grade of steel due to Hyundai’s dominance in the steel and shipbuilding industries.  Rigid cycle testing, heat testing, vibration testing and shock load testing is conducted in the design and manufacturing process of all new models insuring optimum durability and reliability.

For those of us here at Fully Equipped that sentence says a ton and suggests even more. Actually, several tons: at 29,321 lbs., we get 14.66 tons, on our calculator. And, as you can see from the picture, all that steel has been forged with purpose. At Hyundai, great steel means great mettle — and great versatility as well!
