Snow Plow Tips
Snow removal can be a tough job even under ideal conditions. Whether you are new to snow plowing or not, when a heavy storm hits, the industry standard is to plow with the storm rather than after. Big winter storms bring deep snow which makes your job as a snow contractor more difficult. Productivity can diminish if the snow isn’t cleared multiple times during the storm. At a certain point, it becomes almost becoming impossible to clear snow efficiently and as a result wears out your equipment.
In the days leading up to the next winter storm, make sure all snow and ice control equipment is ready to go. Thoroughly inspect your plow and/or spreader and perform all recommended maintenance to ensure the equipment is prepared for the storm ahead. Follow these tips for ongoing maintenance and pre-event checks.
Handling a major snowstorm or blizzard all comes down to proper planning.
Before you head out on the road, make sure you’re also physically prepared. Pack your emergency kits, top off your gas tank, and get a good night’s sleep. Remember the essentials like extra warm clothing, blankets, shovel, gloves, flashlight, water and healthy snacks like sunflower seeds or almonds.
The safety of your clients and crew are held to a high standard, do the same for your equipment.
Always check with your local FISHER® dealer to determine if they are open during snow emergencies or provide any other services that may be helpful to you during a major snowstorm.
