    I have the opportunity to bid a large National Guard Airport parking area and taxiways.
    The contract calls for no operations of snowplowing while the helicopters are on the ramp, this just leaves 500k square feet of wide open pavement.
    My current snowplowing insurance has threatened to drop me if I bid on this job and win. They claim it is too big of a risk.

    Does anyone out there plow airports and if so, who do you have your insurance thru.

    Need this info ASAP.

    Isn't it against FAA rules to have any vehicle that has been on the road to be on a Tarmac due to salt residue and other road chemicals?
    Also that's a pretty big lot, I hope you have something besides a little skid ster.

    You are correct.
    I have to have dedicated equipment free of any dirt and salt residue.
    Looking at two mid sized front end loaders with 10 foot pusher boxes and one pickup with a plow for near the hangers.
    Have to start plowing ops when snow is 1/2 inch and must be kept clear.
    We only have to windrow the snow then the large (State Owned) airport snowblowers will be in to clear the windrows.

    If you can windrow, why are you using boxes?
