Have Snow Shovel – Will Travel!

There are so many efficient ways to clear snow nowadays.  Using anything from rechargeable battery powered electric snow blowers to large hydraulic expanding wing snow plows , snow removal has never been easier.  But in the world of detail oriented snow removal, at precarious residential sites in particular, nothing can replace a quality snow shovel for maintaining the cleanliness and tidiness of a property.

Sometimes, only a snow shovel will do………..

When clearing snow from difficult to access or “obstruction-rich” areas, there are only a few ways to get the job done.  Of course, melting snow is fine when minimal accumulation occurs.  Just apply salt or any other suitable ice melt material and wait for clear pavement to happen.  But, when snow falls fast and accumulation is rapid, physical removal is the only way to gain control of the targeted area.

When snow blowers, plows, rotating brooms, etc. simply cannot fit or reach the area in need of service, a snow shovel becomes the only option available.  A well built snow shovel PLUS the will and ability to use it, is the most important snow removal tool a contractor or self-performing property owner can have.

Shovel-Only Areas:

  • Between/around parked vehicles (when necessary/requested)
  • Stairs
  • Stoops
  • Decks
  • Shopping cart corrals, bike racks, etc.
  • Utilities
  • Trash dumpsters
  • Along base of overhead garage doors

Please be sure to contact Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. with any snow, lawn or landscape management service request you may have.  We look forward to hearing from you and stand ready to help anyway we can.  Thank you for visiting our site and have a great day!

3 Proven Ways to Increase Commercial Snow Removal Quality and Reliability!

After spending the last 25 years in the business of commercial snow removal, even to this day, we continue to learn and find new ways to tweak our operational techniques and further improve the level of service we provide for our clients.  Here are 3 readily available resources that if used, will help a snow removal contractor increase efficiency, improve quality and ideally, stay a few steps ahead of the storm.

1). Skid-Steer Loader: Very reliable, extra maneuverable and can clear a lot of snow in a hurry! Regardless of the brand of skid-steer  (Bobcat, Cat, New Holland, etc.), these machines run on either wheels or tracks and can quickly attach to just about any snow removal attachment ever created (universal attachment mounting plate used across all manufacturer’s machines).  Couple a sectional containment plow/snow pusher (8′ to 12′ wide) to a highly maneuverable piece of equipment like a skid-steer loader and you have a winning combination for just about any snow clearing operation!

 

2). Industrial Snow Pusher Shovel:  Simple, durable and excellent scraping ability.  These “Snow Plow/Snow Pusher” shovels are constructed almost entirely of polyethylene/fiberglass and perform flawlessly!  With only a minimal initial investment ($25-$80 each), these snow shovels come in a variety of sizes ranging from 12″ to 48″ wide and can be easily refurbished (if ever needed) with parts available direct from the manufacturer.  These shovels are especially great for clearing snow from somewhat delicate surfaces that are prone to scratching and damage from normal steel edged snow shovels (wood decks, brick pavement, stone, outdoor carpet, stamped concrete, etc.).

3). Mobile Storage Containers:  Large or small sizes readily available, own or rent, super secure and can be delivered just about anywhere.These strategically placed, on-site, all steel containers have truly revolutionized the way ice melt materials (bagged and bulk) and snow removal equipment can be stored, secured and maintained to achieve a constant state of readiness.

Please be sure to contact our team at Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. with any snow and ice management service need you may have.  We remain ready and able to assist any way we can.  Thank you for visiting our site and have a great day!
