Maintenance team is now ready for the cold and snow!
The St. Louis Center Maintenance Department is ready for the blustery winter months. Battling the snow with a personal snow blower and shovels is no longer an issue. The sidewalks and pathways of the Center will now be cleaned by the Boss Snow Raider.
Thanks to donations raised at the 2021 Fall Dinner Auction and the generosity of Weingartz, snow removal will be easier this year. With 4 wheel drive this machines will help the maintenance department make short time of snow removal. They are estimating it will cut up to 2.5 hours of hard labor each time it snows. This cost effective machine surpassed the hand pushed snow blowers that would back up in heavy or wet snow.
Also, this machine spreads salt as it goes. Salt is more evenly distributed by the salt attachment, making the pathways of the center safer for residents.
