Industries outside of snow and ice find value in using snow pushers
When the word “snowplow” or “snow pusher” is used the first thing that typically comes to mind is winter and snow. However, there are several industries outside of snow and ice management that are finding success in using Pro-Tech Sno Pushers. Companies in agriculture are using Sno Pushers to help them manage ethanol, manure, grains, silage, and fertilizers.
Pro-Tech customer, Kokomo Grain Co. in Kokomo, Indiana, uses Sno Pushers with their front end loaders. The rubber edge of the Sno Pusher helps them to reduce the need to sweep their buildings and pads where they store large amounts of corn. The Sno Pusher is also wider than the loader’s wheel base, limiting the amount of material that is run over. Kokomo Grain used to carry corn in the buckets of their front end loaders; whereas now simply pushing it with their Sno Pushers, resulting in quicker cleanup times and reducing the “wear and tear” on their machines.
