Even though winter is quickly fading away to sunnier, warmer months it is never to early to start preparing for the next season’s snowy weather. In 2014, severe winter weather was the cause of about 15% of all insured auto, home, and business catastrophe losses in the United States alone.
Whether you’re a independent professional with a compact tractor snow pusher, an employee of a company that requires constant snow removal, or just interested in heavy duty snow plows there is one type of sno pusher that rises above the rest: snow plow rubber edges. Snow plow rubber edges have become the industry standard inmany ways since their first inception in the early 1990s, and for good reason. Here are three of those reasons.
- Versatility: Probably the best thing about snow plow rubber edge is the fact that you don’t have to worry about what kind of surface you’ll be asked to plow. The rubber edge allows these snow pushers to handle virtually any type of surface including concrete, asphalt, stone, and gravel just to name a few. They can be used to clear parking lots, airport tarmac, and industrial facilities.
- Durability: Even though the edge is made of rubber, the rest of the unit is made from steel and fully welded to make it incredibly durable for many years. The last thing you need during a brutal snowstorm or seemingly never-ending days of constant snowfall is for your plow to break down unexpectedly.
- Effective and Efficient: Snow plow rubber edges can easily move a large amount of snow in a short amount of time. In addition to the snow removal though, you can also move other materials such as mud, dirt, grain, and manure too. With just enough stiffness and flexibility these kind of pushers are great in a variety circumstances making it one of the best options on the market.
Winter-related disasters accounted for about $3.7 billion worth of damage in the U.S. in 2014. While it’s impossible to prevent all of this kind of natural occurrence, quick, responsive, and efficient snow removal can go a long way in airing efforts to mitigate it.
