Berlon Auger for Fast Snow Removal in Hard to Reach Places

Berlon Industries is rolling out a new snow auger attachment for fast snow removal in hard to reach places. Dubbed the Snowger, it is designed to sneak under trailers and other areas to safely and quickly remove snow.

The idea came to Elliot Pennock when he noticed how difficult it was to clear snow from under semi-trailers, especially with snow pushers and plows. To solve that problem, Pennock came up with the Snowger, which looks like a box plow with an auger running through it.

“The Snowger is far superior than offset angle plows and pushers that are often used to clear snow from underneath semi-trailers,” said Elliott Pennock, who came up with the idea for the attachment. “An angle plow or pusher might get the job done, but it’s not very efficient. If you’re operating a large distribution or trucking facility, efficiency is the name of the game, and the Snowger provides it.”

Mike Ebben, President/CEO of Berlon Industries comments that while the original design was intended to remove snow from under tractor trailers, “other uses for the Snowger will come up, like for airports, loading docks, and other hard to reach places.”

The Snowger is made to attach to skid steers, compact wheel loaders, and tractor loaders with auxiliary hydraulics. The Snowger comes standard with a universal skid steer mount hookup and has several other mounting options available as well. The unit is has two heavy duty mounts. The offset mount is used for removing snow. The center mount is used when you aren’t operating the unit and need a stable load when traveling greater distances.

With a 13” auger housed in a long 16.5’ wide by 24” high body, the Snowger can windrow snow 8 feet away from an area you are clearing. That means the snow is not only moved out of the way from something like a semi-trailer, it is also ready to be completely moved out of the way with a plow right afterward. The Snowger comes with bright LED lights for increased visibility and safety.

“Distribution facility operators need snow removed fast, safely and efficiently,” Pennock said. “Trailer spotters work quickly and need to securely hook up a trailer for positioning. With the Snowger, they can be confident that snow and ice build-up won’t jeopardize a proper hook up. Property damage and personal injury risks are also reduced.”

Take a look at the Snowger at work.
