New Snow Removal Equipment
FWACAA plans to purchase one new bi-directional tractor for Smith Field. The bi-directional tractor will be able to plow snow and have a snow blower attachment. Currently there is no piece of equipment capable to blow a large amount of snow at SMD. A bi-directional tractor will allow one person to safely removal all snow from aircraft movement areas with one piece of equipment. We expect the delivery of the tractor this Summer.
