    Here is a picture of a few of our machines at a Lowe's we do, Sorry for the night photos. We use the container to the right for salt storage on site. What a great idea that was! Actions pictures from the entire fleet coming as soon as we get another decent event to use it!

    Still deciding whether to letter the moldboard on the new Arctic sectionals we got or not! I don't know if has ever been done! We letter them and then clear coat it. It works great!

    248 With Wide Tire Kit, It pushes the 10' box no problem, Plus it loads salt out of the container! Double duty!

    Very nice, I really like the lettering in the box! They do our lowes here with trucks I think too.

    It is possible to do it with larger trucks, but at 7 acres+ is easier to use machines with snowpushers! Plus trucks can only stack so high with a v plow, but they do have their place to clean around buildings and salt.

    Yeah they have there place but I don't see how they made money doing that lot with just pick ups because they were all just 7.5 foot blades. That had to take a while

    Is that a Sectional on that big loader? If so, how do you like it?

    A V would of helped them alot. I watched them for alittle while and one of them would go flying down the lot then at the last sec he would lock the breaks up and bounce off the guardrail/snow piles what ever he would hit first it just reminded me why I don't want to buy a used plow set up.

    Yes that is a sectional, Extremely satisfied with it. Scrapes like nothing we have ever seen, And we have owned Protech, Avalanche and now the Arctics which is what we will be sticking with from here on out! We are also a distributor for Arctic's Sectional Plow.

    agreed. we did a similar sized lowes with a 1 plow truck & 1 SS w/pusher, the combo was very efficient.

    Nice equipment BTW! I'm surprised you dont run a sectional on the SS?

    Planning on one on that machine later in the season. We just had that pusher re-lettered with the phone number 3 months ago so we have to get a little use out of it before putting a sectional on it.

    Do those sectionals work like they claim they do.

    Yes they really work and scrape like they say they do and they are worth every penny! My salt usage that I though I would have used on one site is down by about 35-40%!
