    Looks more like hard pack than ice. Either way I bet its doing a number on the asphalt below.

    Well, they are only meant for snow. But they are made of high quality steel and the hydraulic cylinders have relief valves

    We regularly use this on paved surfaces as well, it's not a problem in case they catch on something.

    It's always neat to see how other countries handle their snow and ice removal. I wonder where that was filmed?

    That's a cool machine but it seems totally pointless to load the snow when you could easily blow it off to the side.

    Pretty sure that isn't Dutch, since the writing is French.

    And Netherlands doesn't get that much snow.

    First video is absolutely hardpack, not ice. I have removed ice with our loader, and it's a job...especially on uneven surfaces.

    Gotta love them Hollanders!

    We'll never see anything close to that efficient here in the states, it would take the place of too many union members.

    That thing is AWESOME! Too bad there's no footage of it actually plowing, just a couple shots of it driving around with a plow and salter. Good stuff.
