HUSTISFORD, WI -- (Marketwired) -- 10/19/16 -- Clearing snow from underneath semi-trailers is now easier and safer than ever with the Snowger -- the first auger-type attachment designed for distribution centers and trucking facilities.
"The Snowger is far superior than offset angle plows and pushers commonly used to clear snow from underneath semi-trailers," said Elliott Pennock, who came up with the idea for the attachment. "An angle plow or pusher might get the job done, but it's not very efficient. If you're operating a large distribution or trucking facility, efficiency is the name of the game, and the Snowger provides it."
Berlon Industries, a Wisconsin manufacturer of buckets and attachments sold under the Berlon Strong brand, worked with Pennock to perfect the design, and is now exclusively manufacturing the attachment, according to Mike Ebben, president of Berlon Industries.
The Snowger can be attached to a skid steer, compact wheel loader, or tractor loader that has auxiliary hydraulics. The unit comes standard with skid universal mount hook up, while other mounts are available. The attachment's offset mount is for operational mode while its center mount is for transit.
"Distribution facility operators need snow removed fast, safely and efficiently," Pennock said. "Trailer spotters work quickly and need to securely hook up a trailer for positioning. With the Snowger, they can be confident that snow and ice build-up won't jeopardize a proper hook up. Property damage and personal injury risks are also reduced."
The 13" auger is housed in a 16.5-foot-wide body and windrows snow 8 feet away from parked trailers, allowing for quick and easy plowing of the windrowed snow. The attachment is 24 inches high and includes LED lights for optimal visibility and safety. Drive components are shielded from the elements and guard some of the moving parts.
The Snowger also is ideal for moving snow away from docks, buildings or anywhere you are hand shoveling or use of a snow plow is difficult.
The Snowger has its patent pending.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
