Some different types of snow removal equipment include snow plows, snow blowers, salt spreaders, shovels and scrapers. Snow plows are some of the most common type of equipment and are used to remove snow from the ground and driveways.
Snow plows cover large areas quickly and easily with an angled blade that can remove snow without damaging the ground. Some are separate units, while others connect to a pickup truck. Snow blowers are also efficient but only remove the snow directly in front of the blower. Blowers are ideal for smaller areas where a path is necessary for safety purposes.
