Posted by Melissa Gardner

Jan 31, 2018 4:03:14 PM

Profitability is always on the mind of the snow and ice control business owner.  Plagued by unpredictable weather patterns, high startup and maintenance costs, and an ever decreasing pool of qualified employees, these professionals know the difference an increase in efficiency can make.  See below to find out how the QuickCube Spreader System by BOSS can lend a hand in getting profitability back to black.

  • Reduces salt usage with the ability to track and train operators using cubes as a unit of measurement.

  • Lowers insurance costs as operators do not require a special license. (Please check your local laws)

  • Eliminates the need for an on-site storage shed or remote salt piles – the cubes become your salt pile!
