Prioritize Pedestrian Safety with the Ice-Breaker

When it comes to sidewalk ice control and removal, Trackless has you covered. Winter snow and sleet can result in particularly icy sidewalks and walkways, which can make pedestrian and cyclist movements more hazardous. Using an ice-crushing attachment like the Snow Lion Ice-Breaker from Trackless Vehicles can help to break up slippery surfaces and add traction to pedestrian commutes. Besides general pedestrian safety, this attachment can contribute to a community’s accessibility and well-being. Read on to learn more about the importance of ice control and why our Snow Lion Ice-Breaker attachment is the right choice for you!

Why is Ice Control and Removal Important?

  1. Prevention of Accidents: Icy sidewalks pose a significant risk of slips, trips, and falls. Removing or breaking up icy surfaces helps mitigate these risks and ensures the safety of pedestrians.
  2. Accessibility: Removing ice from sidewalks ensures that sidewalks remain accessible to everyone. Ice-covered sidewalks can be particularly challenging for people with mobility issues, making it difficult or impossible for them to navigate safely.
  3. Liability: By breaking up ice frozen to sidewalk surfaces, contractors and municipalities can fulfill their responsibilities to maintain safe walking conditions for pedestrians, mitigating any liability risks.
  4. Community Well-Being: Clear and accessible sidewalks promote community well-being by encouraging outdoor activity and pedestrian traffic. When sidewalks are icy and hazardous, people may be reluctant to venture outside, leading to decreased physical activity and social isolation.
  5. Public Image: Maintaining clear and safe sidewalks reflects positively on municipalities; it demonstrates a commitment to public safety and contributes to the overall attractiveness of a neighbourhood or community.

Advantages of the Snow Lion Ice-Breaker

Our Snow Lion Ice-Breaker attachment offers several advantages for winter sidewalk management:

  1. Durable Construction: Trackless Vehicles is known for producing durable and reliable equipment, and the Snow Lion Ice-Breaker attachment is no exception. Its sturdy construction and high-quality materials ensure longevity and durability, making it a cost-effective investment for municipalities, contractors, and other organizations responsible for winter maintenance.
  2. Effective Ice Removal: The Ice-Breaker is designed to break up ice from roadways, sidewalks, parking lots, and other surfaces effectively. Its robust construction and specialized double-roller design enable it to handle thick layers of ice efficiently, making it a valuable tool for winter maintenance operations.
  3. Reduced Labor and Time: Ice removal tasks can be completed more quickly and with less manual labour with the Ice-Breaker attachment, compared to traditional methods. This helps increase operational efficiency and allows maintenance crews to clear sidewalks and pathways faster, minimizing disruptions and ensuring safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
  4. Enhanced Safety and Accessibility: By quickly and effectively breaking up ice, the Snow Lion Ice-Breaker attachment helps improve safety on sidewalks, bike paths and walkways during winter weather conditions. Breaking up ice and creating more surface traction reduces the risk of pedestrian injuries, contributing to overall public safety and reducing potential liabilities for municipalities. Clearing sidewalks of ice also increases accessibility, which is especially important for community members who may have mobility issues.
  5. Minimal Environmental Impact: The Snow Lion Ice-Breaker attachment reduces ice pack and breaks apart icy surfaces without the use of salt, sand or other deicing materials, reducing environmental impact.
  6. Versatility: The Ice-Breaker is designed to be mounted on the front of the Trackless MT. Operators may choose to boost the versatility of their machine by outfitting their MT with a Rear-Mounted Sidewalk Spreader to disperse salt, sand, or other deicing materials. Alternatively, Trackless offers two sizes of Brine Sprayer attachments that would be an ideal companion to the Ice-Breaker.
