Types of Construction Snow Removal Equipment You Can Rent

RAKA carries a large inventory of machinery and attachments ideal for handling winter weather:

Skid Steer Loaders

Some snow removal jobs call for the ability to navigate tight spaces, which is where skid steers excel. These machines are easy to transport and have the maneuverability to relocate snow in smaller areas and on sidewalks. Attachments like pushes, blowers, brooms and plows make the skid steer a versatile piece of snow removal equipment.

Backhoe Loaders

The backhoe loader is popular for extreme winter weather events because of its exceptional torque and versatility. These machines can easily remove, stack or load wet, heavy snow and slush. Their unique design allows users to do multiple jobs with this single piece of equipment.

Backhoe attachments useful for snow removal include various pushes, blowers, blades and sweepers.

Front-End Loaders

Front-end loaders, or wheel loaders as some call them, are a good choice for large areas and heavy, wet snow. They feature increased pushing power that makes it easy to clear commercial spaces and parking lots. Plus, they have ample lifting capability to create piles of snow for more efficient cleaning.

Wheel loaders readily accept attachments like blades and sweepers to move snow.

Compact Track Loaders

Like skid steers, compact track loaders (CTLs) are maneuverable and easy to transport. Their unique track-style propulsion method gives them a high level of ground contact, which can provide extra traction on snow and ice.

CTLs couple with useful attachments like blades, buckets, brooms and blowers.
