A little skid steer tractor with a huge snowplow attatchment. Niles Illinois. Tuesday, March 5th, 2013., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph last year, in northwest suburban Niles Illinois.
Although this little "Skid Steer" construction tractor is quite small and compact, an extra wide oversized plow attatchment can still fit nicely, and perform the snow plowing job at hand quite well.
These little tractors and much larger front end loader tractors, often work side by side whenever a blizzard or lake effect snowstorm may strike the greater Chicagoland area.
These tools are important to help keep large local parking lots both safe and clear of accumulated snowfall.
