At 26,000 lbs, the loaders are worth their weight in gold. Unfortunately they have been given an undeserved bad reputation over the years. In reality, they are the unsung heroes when the snow gets deep. Each winter is different and every storm is unique. We have seen instances where 5 feet of snow has fallen overnight. The loaders wait at the shop and only emerge to assist the smaller Holder snowblowers when these large storms inundate the subdivision.
