Road graders become snow plows come winter
I've always called this giant piece of equipment a road grader. I don't recall these being used as snow plows in the southern Ontario town I once called home. I decided to do a Google search for more information.
I learned Cat calls these motor graders and the wing on the side and the blade at the front are custom additions for snow removal.
A good operator can plow a street and leave the roadway clear and yet not plug the entrances to everyone's driveway. This operator was good. Very good.
