Summary

Getting ready for snow removal season? Power through winter weather and keep high-traffic areas such as driveways, parking lots and sidewalks clear by using the right Bobcat® snow removal equipment.

Top Snow Removal Machines 

  1. Skid-steer loaders Designed to turn within their own length, skid-steer loaders have the maneuverability, nimbleness and traction that make them very popular for removing snow in open areas or tight spaces. Unlike a pickup truck with a snow blade, a skid-steer loader can lift and load snow for transport. An enclosed cab with heat, Selectable Joystick Controls and a suspension seat are a few of options that help make your job easier. The optional two-speed transmissions also increases efficiency by shortening travel time and increasing plowing performance. 
     
  2. Mini track loaders– Mini track loaders are easy to operate and economically priced. The walk-behind machine can easily access and clear tight spaces — such as sidewalks and walkways — that are too small for larger equipment. The controls are simple and require little effort to operate. Speed, direction, lift and tilt controls are at the tips of your fingers. 

  3. Utility Vehicles– Four-wheel drive UTVs provide compact solutions for quickly removing light to moderate snow on sidewalks and pathways. They also have the muscle and traction needed for larger snow removal jobs. Stay warm while working with an optional enclosed heated cab. 

  4. Toolcat™ utility work machines-- These machines combine the most practical features of a UTV, pickup truck, compact tractor and skid-steer loader into one machine. The four-wheel drive system provides the traction and pushing power needed for fast and efficient snow removal. They have all-wheel steering and a tighter turning radius than most pickup trucks. The machine can travel as fast as 18 mph, which improves plowing capabilities by enabling snow to roll. The enclosed cab — with optional heat — has a suspension seat, easy-to-use controls, cruise control and tilt steering.
