The Equipment


Airfield snow removal tactics

  • Hydrostatic Brooms

  • Produced better friction results

  • Restricted capability in heavy snow accumulations

Multi-Tasking Equipment (MTE)


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
