Crawley Council choose Meyer DrivePro snow ploughs
Crawley Council choose Meyer DrivePro snow ploughs
Crawley Borough Council has bought two Meyer DrivePro snow plough blades and two grit spreaders to help in its fight against heavy snowfall. The heavy duty equipment, which cost 13,000, will be fitted to the council's Ford Ranger light trucks during periods of heavy snowfall to help maintain access around the town. The ploughing and gritting attachments can be fitted in a very short space of time to the four-wheel drive trucks. They will be able to help maintain access to council facilities and many of the hilly residential streets which are not on West Sussex County Council's main snow clearing routes.
Councillor Bob Lanzer, Leader of the Council, said: "Our staff worked extremely hard over the winter when snow twice seriously affected movement across the town. This equipment will help us to be much more effective should we experience similar conditions in the future."

BMW choose Meyer DrivePro snow ploughs
One of the Land Rover Defenders with the DrivePro snow plough fitted
Kersten have supplied and fitted two Meyer DrivePro snow ploughs with EZ-Mount receiver hitch systems onto two Land Rover Defenders at the famous BMW UK manufacturing plant at Cowley in Oxford.
These machines are going to be used to help keep the factory operational in times of severe weather.
The Meyer DrivePro is an easy-to-use, fully functional steel snowplow operated from the comfort of your vehicle. Unlike other residential snowplows, the DrivePro goes up, down, right or left with the push of a button. The DrivePro attaches or detaches in well under a minute with the pull of one handle; and once attached, you don't need to leave the vehicle to angle the plow.
DrivePro's use Meyer's EZ-Mount Plus mounting systems.
We have also supplied salt/gritting machines and pedestrian snow ploughs for use on pavement areas

Reading, in Berkshire is braced for a winter whiteout with new pavement snow ploughs and stocks of grit doubled this year and has purchased two hand-held ploughs from Mortimer firm Kersten UK, says Julie Spencer's report from Get Reading of 26th November 2010.

With the Met Office predicting snow and plunging temperatures across the country this weekend, the council said it has learned the lessons of last winter and is set for severe weather.

Keeping pavements clear

The borough council has spent 5,000 on hand-held ploughs to keep pavements clear in the town centre and near key bus stops, installed five new grit bins and has doubled its grit supply to 1,200 tonnes.

Lessons learned

Richard Willis, lead councillor for transport and planning at Reading Borough Council, said: "We have looked in detail at the lessons learned from last year's bad weather and are putting measures in place to ensure that we are better prepared this winter."
