Blizzard loader-mounted cold air blower

The Blizzard, a compact version of the AF1 cold air blower, is used for seasonal and winter airfield maintenance operations. With its high velocity wind and its remarkable airflow, the Blizzard clears grass clippings, snow, ice patches, standing water, dust, FODs, and organic material from runways, taxiways, aprons, and airfield signs.

In addition, the Blizzard is the ideal equipment to rapidly remove both fresh and packed snow around airport runway lights. Designed to be front mounted on a wheel loader, this unique attachment is the ideal investment for regional and municipal airports.
