Snow and ice removal tools

Date posted: 5 September 2011

The last few winters in the UK have seen a significant amount of snow fall and ice form. Although it may look picturesque, snow and ice can be destructive elements and cause us to lose time clearing cars, pathways and driveways.

The snow make look beautiful after it first falls, but it soon becomes a hindrance if not dealt with correctly. House surroundings and workplaces particularly require adequate clearing to be used safely. Luckily, Best at hire offer a range of winter tool hire to help with the snow and ice this winter.

Preparation is key to controlling weather issues - if snow has been forecast in your area, hire a rock salt spreader for your driveway to achieve a balanced spread of salt. Sale spreaders are easily manoeuvrable, so you can treat difficult-to-reach areas. If you need to prepare your workplace from the perils of snow and ice, then hire a large salt spreader to cover a larger area, such as car parks and pavements. Also idea for workplaces grit bin hire, which store your rock salt and grit cleanly, allowing access as and when you require.

If a heavy snow fall has been forecast or has already fallen, a one-man snow plough is the perfect tool for the job. These often offer lightweight, bi-directional blades which pushes the snow the same way with every ‘pass’ of the plough, pushing away unwanted snow swiftly.

For an extremely handy (and impressive) gadget this winter, hire an ice melt sprayer. Spray a special solution to de-ice stairwells, gantries and other places unreachable with a snow plough or ice scraper to easily get rid of unwanted ice.

Tool and equipment hire enables you to use top quality equipment without the purchase price tag. Hiring also means you can return your tools when you have no further use for them - your winter tools won’t require storage the whole year round.

Be smart this winter and hire winter tools to remove the problem snow and ice safely.
