Use your machine for winter maintenance

Use your machine for winter maintenance!

The great thing about a multi-attachment machine is that it can be utilised all year round.
The Kersten two-wheel tractors can be fitted with snow chains and winter attachments to transform your machine into the ultimate winter companion for paths and car parks. The hydraulic drive is extremely useful for slowing the wheel speed to avoid slipping on the icy surface when using the winter attachments.
The snow sweeper - For light snow fall, the sweeper is a perfect tool and clears access paths quickly. The sweeper will deal with up to 5cm of snow quite easily by angling the brush and wind-rowing it. The gaps in the rows of bristles allow the sweeper to deal with the large volumes of material that need to be moved by the brush. When used on fresh snow the brush can sweep down to the surface dries quickly is therefore less likely to be slippery.
The snow plough - A snow plough attachment can be fitted to the K-series or UBS for dealing with heavier snow drifts. The snow plough is a straight blade with a sprung “break-back” system that allows it to ride over obstacles such as drain covers or speed bumps. The plough can be positioned for ploughing forward or can be angled to the left and right.
The salt spreader - A hydraulic drive salt spreader is available for the K-series machines, which can carry up to 70 litres of salt. The spreader is fitted with a mesh for breaking up large clumps of salt before they go through the machine. A special agitator has been designed to deal with damp salt, using a chain to break up the material. Guards allow the spread width to be adjusted to suit the application.
The snow blower – For deeper drifts of snow the UBS machines can be fitted with a snowblower. This uses a two-stage tooth and fan system to break up the snow and then pull it through the machine. The snow is then blown through a chute by the fan, the chute can be adjusted to place the snow in the desired direction. A snow blower requires at least a few inches of snow before it will work effectively.

Kersten working with F G Adamson at the Driffield show.

Driffield show starts early and is busy from the start, by 9.15 there were serious hire enquiries for the weedbrush and sweeper to clean block paving. The public only thinks of pressure washers and was very pleasantly surprised to find a chemical free way to clear moss and weeds from their properties. Watching people walk by the Kersten Weedo then touch and enquire was great, as they are seeing something new. A quick chat gave them the help and information they needed, all happy and now with new information on block paving drive maintenance. Educating the public who had real concerns on what to a Kersten knowledge empowered person is a simple job.

Putting back kerb appeal is what we are are about in simple terms, making properties look good.

Come 5.15pm the public were going home as you suddenly realised the day was nearly over, now wait till the 6 pm close, derig and off site by 7.30pm, a full 12-hour day.

Kersten Driffield Fitting a Meyer PathPro 1 - 2018 FG Adamson

Fitting a Meyer PathPro 1.8m auto angling snow plough John Deere Gator an easy job. When we arrive with a dealer to a show site the UTV will be onsite and 30seconds later the display is enhanced by the bright and bold Meyer Snowplough.

Showing our plough fitted to a Gator, this gives potential customers’ information that their four wheeler can be used for something else other than transport.

No modifications to the Gator required, just slide the plough bracket into the 2” front receiver, all held in by 1 pin, using the hand winch to lift the plough is simple and cost effective.

Meyer ploughs are designed so that if the blade is at right angles to the Gator the snow will come out or both sides at the same time, a very clever.

Another Meyer feature of the Pathpro plough is AUTO angling, the plough automatically will plough either left or right depending where the snows has resistance.

If you need to plough to right or left then just pin the plough as required.

Finally back to the saying from the Ronseal advert: “ it does what it says on the tin”
