Zero-Tolerance Sidewalk Snow Management

Zero-Tolerance Sidewalk Snow Management

We spoke with Cody and John, the fleet manager and mechanic at a large commercial snow contractor in Minnesota. Prescription Landscape has contracts with clients that have large campuses and often operate on 24-hour schedules. Hospitals and places requiring no snow or ice are known as zero-tolerance accounts in the snow removal world, and they are some of the most challenging accounts to maintain during a labor shortage.

Some hurdles that they face as a snow contractor are keeping people comfortable during the job and sourcing reliable labor for all hours of the snowstorm. For this reason, the staff at Prescription Landscape are passionate about making sure the snow can be removed with the right tools and limited hand labor. Fortunately, for this commercial snow contractor, the SSV is a machine that allows one operator to be as effective as a giant team of people. They have a fleet of Ventracs and SSVs that take the place of 20 temporary shovelers during the winter season when it can be hard to find enough labor to handle the storms.

With a multitude of various attachments on the front of the machine, the SSV is able to handle any snowfall that happens. From brooms and blades that clear down to the bare pavement to de-icing options like a drop spreader and brine system. The SSV snow blower has the ability to work in up to several feet of snow and comes with the extra convenience of being able to move that snow exactly where you want it. It has a multi-directional adjustable chute that the operator can change from the operator station.

Ventrac also goes to great lengths to keep the operator comfortable. Ergonomic operator features include a suspended platform, a soft operator pad, heated hand grips, and an optional windscreen to keep the elements off of the operator. Ventrac offers a full line of attachments and accessories to be able to outfit the power unit with everything you need for any job on sidewalk snow removal.

The Sidewalk Snow Vehicle is equipped with true commercial-duty attachments that can get a lot of work done but are also compact enough to maintain the maneuverable nature of the vehicle. It's also valuable to know how quickly you can change from one attachment to the next when oftentimes the conditions change in an instant. Every one of Ventrac's attachments can come on and off the machine in less than a minute.

With clients that count on them, the staff at Prescription Landscape know they can rely on Ventrac to keep their zero-tolerance accounts happy and safe, no matter the situation.
