The primary purpose of our Ford pick-up trucks is to plow snow. For the surface area we need to plow and the amount of snow we need to move requires that we use a heavy-duty vehicle. In addition the vehicle must be manufactured and specially prepared by the manufacturer to accommodate the loads placed on the vehicle by snow plowing.
The purchase of a zero emission electric powered utility vehicle would be a beneficial compliment to our existing fleet of heavy-duty vehicles especially when displacing a hydrocarbon vehicle to carry out light duty chores.
