  • Airport operations designs the snow plan to achieve specific goals during a snow event
  • Include the FAA (tower) to understand it’s role in snow removal.
  • Include the airlines to support a proactive snow plan
  • Include airfield maintenance to execute the plan

Hydrostatic Brooms

  • Produced better friction results
  • Restricted capability in heavy snow accumulations
mte advantages
MTE Advantages
  • Plow, sweep and air blast the surface in one pass
  • High performance capability reduces runway occupancy times (30mph plus)
  • One person operation promotes effective utilization of human resources
  • The MTE operates effectively in snow accumulations from 0 to 30 inches
