As of 2015, the only company that makes truck-mounted snowblowers is SnowVac. Spartan Equipment and John Deere manufacture snowblowers that attach to tractors and skid-steer loaders. Truck-mounted snowblowers are ideal for people who need to remove large amounts of snow, but have no place to plow it.
SnowVac truck-mounted snowblowers are built to order in Pennsylvania. The snowblowers are 84 inches wide and attach easily to Arctic, Fischer and Western mounts. They feature a cutting height of 30 inches, a 24-inch four-blade fan, 15-inch auger and adjustable, replaceable skid shoes. SnowVac snowblowers weight 1,250 pounds and must be mounted on a 3/4 ton or larger truck. SnowVac offers a package option for individuals wishing to switch between a plow and a snowblower.
SnowVac truck-mounted snowblowers feature in-cab controls that operate most features of the snowblower. A wireless remote control system is also available to control certain functions, such as starting and stopping the snowblower and directing the chute and throttle up and down. SnowVac offers several optional items with its truck-mounted snowblowers, including a flip-up engine cover, electric powered chute deflector and a hydraulic chute rotator. SnowVac truck-mounted snowblowers also work on loaders, skid steers, and agricultural and utility tractors.
