Snow Ploughs

The snow ploughs from Pronar range from 1.9m – 4m working widths depending on model. Some models are available with 4 working positions. New and ex hire stock available.

Snow Blowers

These tractor snow blower attachments are extremely useful for moving large quantities of snow, well out of your way. Snow blowers allow you to direct where snow is blown so you can avoid large piles directly next to the roads or paths.
Akpil Stratos 2: Built with two augers and a working width of 2.4m you can work effectively to move snow. It can work through snow depths of up to 1.2m.
Current stock price: £8,300 + vat

Orrell Group Machinery and Spectrum Plant have joined forces to work together on a current arboriculture project. We have developed a chipper/transport carrier body for Hooklift trailers.

arboriculture project

We have designed and built this 6m body. It includes a 15m3 chip box which carries roughly 6 ton. As well as a 3m platform for machinery and or log storage. In addition we can also build these with extra stillages for timber storage. Or with fork slots for easy loading and unloading of logs. All projects are built bespoke to the user. This proves a point of how the Hooklift trailers can be of benefit to so many work sectors. As well as our ability to create bespoke bodies.

Spectrum Plant based in Warrington are arboriculture machinery dealers. They bought the Timberwolf 230 VTR chipper and the WorkyQuad SSQ22 loader to position on our hooklift body.
