In general, melting is not more expensive than trucking; however, it depends on multiple variables such as the distance to the snow dump site, hourly trucking costs, weight of snow, plus the cost of land for the dump site. Below are the melter models in our fleet and the applications to which they are best suited.
These melters are the most efficient and popular melters in our fleet; highly effective for clearing taxiways, runways, hardstands, airline terminals.
Self propelled melters are an excellent choice for parking lots; lower height (8’5″/7’9″) makes them small enough for use in confined spaces such as rooftop garages.
If you have a tight budget, these melters are for you. Cost effective means to clear parking lots and rooftop garages.
