    Nice pictures. Do they plug any machines in? How do you like the Komatsu hydrostat? I really liked how it ran for snow.

    That must be one hella' parking lot for that much iron to be sitting in it.

    stuvecorp: No they don't plug the machines in, and I have never had a problem starting my loader or any of the others. I too like the hydrostatic transmission, its very smooth, i think its good for plowing.

    Swampy: Yup just over a million square feet of parking spots, and that doesn't even include the perimeter and interior roads. I did snow removal there after one storm for 4 hrs and put 28 miles on the tri-axle and all snow is hauled to an on site location. Its big!

    I demo/rented a Komatsu 200-5(with a 14' pusher) years ago for a storm and honestly loved the machine, that hydrostatic transmission is awesome. Didn't have too ride the brakes as the machine just slows it self, very good when it's icy. The only thing that I would pick on was the interior, thought it was plastic-y and not as nice as the newer 621's.

    As for plugging in, that was something I militantly have to have. I want the machine to be toasty and ready when it's cold.

    Time for an update of pictures.

    Some pictures of all the equipment on the site before the big blizzard last month. You will see the small tractors w/snow blowers and the buggies that are used on the inside of the mall to clear the walking paths. You can see a video of them in action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F855dInZnAQ

    Now some pictures from the blizzard. We got about 30" of fluffy snow and it all blew around so some parts of the parking lots had 4' of snow! We actually had to shut down for 4hrs in the middle of the night because you could only see about 40ft, so it just wasn't safe to be working.

    Storm is over. The mall actually closed the day after.

    Had to take the snow pushers off the loaders for some parts of the parking lots the snow was so deep.
