Save money on snow clearing by ordering attachments instead of machines, says kit supplier

Etesia got in early with its seasonal weather warning last week, urging grounds upkeep teams to save money on snow-clearing machinery but using kit extensions.

"Many grounds maintenance tasks are seasonal activities, which often results in costly dedicated equipment lying idle during long periods of the year," said UK general manager, Les Malin.

"With these less frequent jobs it makes sense where possible to purchase an attachment which can be fitted to an existing piece of equipment," he said of the supplier’s snow blades, cabs and salt- and sand-spreader attachments.

"These, plus other accessories, transform the mower into a versatile all-year-round multi-functional piece of equipment. Accessories are easily fitted to most ride-on models in the range.

For safety on icy surfaces, wheel chains ensure grip to avoid skidding and keep the machine moving in falling and settled snow, he said.
