    As a complement to its line of Sno Pusher containment plows, Pro-Tech introduces five new Sno Broom attachments for skid steers and compact tractors. Sno Brooms minimize the potential for damaging surfaces, and they excel at removing snow against curbs and walls, as well as other hard-to-reach areas.

    Skid steer models are available with 60-, 72- and 84-inch broom widths and come with a universal coupler for attaching to equipment with various hydraulic flow ratings. Furthermore, they can be hydraulically angled 30 degrees left or right. The PTO-driven tractor model is 84 inches wide and is designed for machines with at least 30 horsepower. It comes standard with a three-point hitch mount.

    Other standard features include storage stands, high-density poly bristles and a 155-degree brush hood. Maximum broom speed is 200 RPM.

    In addition to the Sno Broom, Pro-Tech also offers its Sno Blower and Sno Blade attachments, as well as a full line of Sno Pusher containment plows.

    Founded in 1991, Pro-Tech is the industry-leading manufacturer of commercial-duty containment plows. In addition to these products, the company offers a line of snow removal attachments, including blowers, brooms and blades. Pro-Tech takes pride in its proven value, offering a combination of low price, high quality and ready availability to the market.

    Brooms are nice except the hyd. motor sits out there to be bumped. can the broom be center driven so it is less likely to be damaged in the early morning hours by a half asleep employee?

    Thank you for the question. A center mounted motor is not an available option at this time. Our brooms have been designed with the hydraulic motor mounted axially at the end of the broom to allow for easy brush removal and replacement. For protection, a 1/4" thick motor guard is included as standard. If concerns remain about the safety for the motor, a guide marker could always be mounted to the motor guard.

    Best Regards,
    Tom
