Snow Removal Services

There are a lot of snow removal companies in the industry but very few that are equipped to successfully manage the requirements of a transportation yard to keep your freight moving. Mark at WINIX Developments has been in the Transportation Industry for over 35 years and has acquired valuable knowledge of what is needed to be successful and has developed a superior Snow Removal system to expedite the process to get your fleet back on the road quickly and safely.

The SnowBlade has been specifically designed to fit under the front of a trailer to clear snow away so drivers are able to get the traction needed to connect equipment. This blade has a unique design that draws the snow into the centre of the blade and suspends it, allowing for an increased volume of snow removed with each pass.

WINIX also has the SnowEdge, a patented blade that is a fast, mobile solution to remove snow from the trailer roof top making the load lighter and safer on the road.

Snow Blade Services

Snow plows have been in use for more than 100 years without design improvements to accommodate the requirements for the Transportation Industry. Tractors struggle hooking up to trailers as they lack traction in the snow. Even where snow has been cleared furrows are typically left under the coupling plate making it extremely difficult for tractors to get the traction needed to pull out loaded equipment. This is time consuming and frustrating for everyone as the expectation is that the snow should have been removed during the snow removal process

At WINIX Developments, we asked how we could improve to make it more efficient. The SNOWBLADE was created to solve the problems of a 25 acre very active facility to move more snow, quicker. The SNOWBLADE has been engineered to gather the snow from the edges of the blade into the center and suspend it in motion while travelling which allows for an increased amount of snow cleared with every pass. Due to the extra wide blade (20’ or 26’) the SNOWBLADE is able to reduce the number of times an operator travels down a laneway, which means your equipment is free faster and ready to move. The SNOWBLADE is a purpose-built tool that has proven to be highly effective to get the most efficient results.

SNOWEDGE Snow Removal Services

SNOWEDGE…Snow on trailer roof tops is a serious problem not only for owners but also for truck drivers as the MTO has become more diligent fining snow laden equipment. During the 2017-2018 snow season enforcement officers were seen waiting outside major distribution centers watching for trailers weighed down with snow and ice. While working within the Transportation Industry, Mark Irwin saw a need and began the creation of an innovative tool, the SNOWEDGE, which is able to clear 25 trailers within an hour. This tool can clear 3+feet of snow and up to 4 inches off the trailer roof top, quickly and safely. The SNOWEDGE is revolutionary as it is able to self-transport to any location, remove snow from the trailer roof and then with a quick disconnect relocate the accumulation of snow on the ground to a designated area away from the flow of traffic. Being completely mobile allows us the ability to set up anywhere within a yard to perform this process, and means that you don’t have to designate an area “no parking” for a stationary unit. For many of our customers the cleaning process is set up at their exit lineup, just prior to drivers passing through security. This expedites the exit process, getting equipment back on the road.

Our SNOWEDGE service worked at one client’s yard to successfully clear more than 4,000 trailers during the 2018 winter. Its ability to mate with several styles of machinery and because it is fully mobile, this snow clearing tool makes safety easier for your fleet. The SNOWEDGE’ compact design allows for easy storage and does not require valuable land space to operate. The person operating the unit can disconnect and reconnect the blades from inside the cab, allowing them to stay warm and toasty in the worst weather. The extended 12’ blade is able to reach under the front of trailers to clear away snow, giving drivers easier access to the coupling plate. The SNOWEDGE will get your fleet back into action quickly and safely.
