Why an All Terrain Vehicle hire can prevent you being caught out in the cold this winter

Posted on

It’s that time of year again, Christmas is over, and the spring seems to be just in sight, until an unexpected cold spell stops us in our tracks and reminds us that winter isn’t over just yet!

Snow and ice can be a big problem for many companies, interrupting normal service and causing hazardous conditions in service yards and car parks. Clearing snow and ice manually can be a time consuming (and back breaking!) task, especially if you have large areas to cover. But there is a solution to these winter worries, an All Terrain Vehicle from PSS HIRE can be hired with snow plough and salt spreader attachments to manage winter weather conditions, prevent business down-time and improve safety.

Who can benefit from an All Terrain Snow Plough hire?

Any company that has critical business functions which need to be maintained throughout the winter months would find the ATV Snow Plough a useful addition to their equipment repertoire.  Educational facilities, retail units, manufacturing facilities and even football clubs have benefitted from the ATV Snow Plough. In the event of predicted bad weather, the ATV Snow Plough can be hired to provide additional reassurance that an important event will still be able to take place safely, and to speed up the process of treating surfaces and clearing snow.  

The equipment is perfectly suited for clearing any smooth surface such as car parks, service yards or walkways. Keeping these areas free from snow and ice is an essential task for Ground and Facilities Maintenance teams, to ensure safety and allow business to continue as usual. And of course, the option to hire this equipment means it can be used on a flexible, short term basis and either returned when the season changes or adapted to meet the requirements of the warmer months.

What are the special features of the ATV Snow Plough?

The John Deer Gator XUV 855D ATV has on-demand 4-wheel drive, off-road tyres and a powerful 854cc diesel engine which ensures it can be safely and easily driven through the snow. Hired as a total package, it comes ready with gritter boxes and snow plough attachments.

The ATV Snow Plough can be driven on UK roads and is fitted with an ECC Road Homologation kit. It features window wipers and washers, indicators, and a 3-point safety harness, ensuring compliance with road regulations and allowing the user to drive between sites and manage numerous locations at once.

The ATV has a fully enclosed cab, providing additional levels of protection and safety for the driver.  It is even fitted with heaters to keep the driver warm in harsh weather conditions! The ATV’s high specification features make it a comfortable and safe drive, ensuring the driver remains in command, whatever the weather.
