padSnow Blade for Front End Loaders

Ideal for Airports, Municipalities, and Contractors - Keep ‘em on schedule with ROOT!

  • This snow blade (20' or 30') is designed for easy quick attachment directly to the buckets of front end loaders. After critical areas are cleaned and the snow and slush pushed away the blade can be removed from the bucket which then can be used for loading.
  • Many airports, municipalities and contractors use this blade to clean parking lots and other large areas at airports, shopping centers and factories. Due to its large size you reduce the clean up time substantially over conventional plows, loader buckets or dozers.
  • Designed to push snow and slush away from terminal buildings, gates and ramp areas.
  • Due to the size and easy maneuverability of the blade, critical and hard-to-get-at areas can be quickly cleaned.
  • Allows you to maintain clean snow and slush free areas for boarding and deplaning passengers.
  • Clean ramp areas increase the mobility of ground support equipment and positive traction for heavy airplane tugs.
  • One major international airport leases front end loaders during the winter months and own their own Root Ramp Blades. This gives them extra snow removal equipment for use in the terminal areas while the major equipment is being used on runways and taxiways.
  • Excellent equipment for use in cargo handling areas where concrete surfaces must be kept clean for cargo handling vehicles.
