RDO Equipment Co. recently announced a partnership with MUSKOX, becoming the only authorized dealer of the company’s namesake snowblower attachment for skid steers, compact loaders, and compact track loaders.
The MUSKOX 21-78 snowblower attachment offers a new snow management solution to customers operating John Deere compact construction equipment, including those working in general contracting, commercial snow removal, landscaping, and governmental applications.
The snowblower features an upper cutting edge, enabling operators to closely approach surfaces and structures and to back-drag and blow snow simultaneously. The bottom glide plate, or skid plate, spans the full width of the blower, allowing delicate snow clearing on loose surfaces like grass or gravel. Tilted into the down position, the skid plate boosts torque to break up compacted snow and ice. Additionally, a lowered chute design increases visibility and decreases chute plugging.
“MUSKOX joining the team as an RDO partner is a big win for our customers across the Midwest and mountain regions who have to deal with winter snow removal,” said Vice President Adam Gilbertson. “The unique ability to back-drag with a blower attachment mean less equipment switching, less manual labor, and ultimately, safer and more efficient snow and ice removal.”
The Minnesota-made MUSKOX 21-78 will be available at RDO’s Midwest Construction locations this winter. To provide customers a chance to see the snowblower attachment in action, RDO will be hosting socially distanced demo events at stores across the region in November and December:
