BTB 45: NOW THAT’S A SNOW PLOW!

This year, instead of having the Tigercat 620E skidder parked for the winter months, Utah's Barco LLC decided to utilize it as a very powerful snow plow.

The team at Barco LLC, operating in Utah’s beautiful Dixie National Forest, uses a 620E skidder all summer long until the snow gets over three feet deep. Once the snow reaches that point they typically have plenty of wood already decked to haul out. This year instead of having the skidder parked for the winter months, they decided to utilize it as a snow plow, clearing snow for the log trucks, pushing snow up to six feet deep. The plow attachment only takes five minutes to install, making it a very quick transition from skidder to snow plow.
