Thanks for sharing my coemmnts. Seems like there are two areas of contention, if you will in snow & ice control operations. One seems to be adding liquids to your snow fighting arsenal and in what context, i.e. prewet, anti-ice, etc. and the other is in the addition and use of wing plows. WIng plows have become a standard spec. item in most fleets but there are still a few hold-outs. Adding liquids and wing plows to your winter snowfighting tool kit will: a.) increase your efficiency by increasing your productivity, b.) provide a better service and end result to your customer, c.) your customers will notice the results quicker d.) and ultimately you have satisfied cusomers which means you have a happy board or council. The icing on the cake is you can have an increased level of service and productivity with decreased manhours. It would be great if we could create a message board or discussion group so those that are using these techniques successfully could share their processes and successes with everyone.
