The City of Arvada's Street Maintenance Division has taken delivery on two of the next generation Snow Fighters. The new units are equipped with clean diesel technology Detroit DD13, 410HP engines, providing enough power to push through deep snow but not bellowing black smoke like the diesel engines of the past. They are also equipped with the next generation of hydraulic controls. Our Operator/Pilots are currently spending time in the simulators to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the new units. Look for all five of the new units out on the streets over the next few weeks just in time for Colorado's snowiest spring months.
