October 11, 2022
In the northern part of the U.S., fall is a time to prepare for the snowy season ahead. While collecting leaves and putting down final lawn treatments, be sure you have the right materials and tools for your upcoming winter jobs.
How SiteOne Can Help You Prepare for Winter
SiteOne offers a wide range of deicing materials, application equipment, and tools that will help ensure safety as well as provide a good user experience. One key area that SiteOne has made recent improvements to is the LESCO 50lb Snow/Bulk Spreader and LESCO 80lb Snow/Bulk Spreader, which now feature a moveable full deflector, sawtooth bulk agitator, shockproof winter cover, and reflective decals to help see the spreader at night. These spreaders offer double duty in the warmer months of the year, where they can be used to apply lime. With the simple addition of a bulk agitator, they can also handle organic bulk materials, which are becoming more popular.
Ensure your equipment is properly calibrated to maximize your bottom line. Read and follow your package’s label instructions before application. If spreading LESCO ice melt, SiteOne recommends spreading it with a broadcast spreader. Don’t overapply ice melt; determine how much product you need for the job before spreading. Weather may impact your spreader settings.
Ensure Use of Quality Products and Tools
Customers expect the best from the professionals they hire. You choose quality products and tools when working on your spring jobs- ensure quality year-round. These spreaders are durable and reliable, which is what you need during inclement weather.
