Snow has started to fall in many parts of the country. But when the initial excitement of making snow angels and snowmen wears off, property owners will start to worry about how to remove snow from their parking lots and driveways without damaging the sealcoating underneath.

It's your time to shine! Instead of taking a break this winter, why not venture into snow removal business? Snow removal services are a great way to earn some extra cash this winter, so you don't have to worry about your finances for the next three months. 

Ready to remove snow from sidewalks and parking lots this winter? Then here are a few snow removal equipment and supplies to help you get started.

Ice melting chemicals. There are many ice-melting chemicals you can use to remove snow from your customer's driveway or parking lot. These include compounds such as sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, and calcium magnesium acetate.

But whichever product you choose, always make sure that it will not corrode the asphalt sealcoating, and it is pet, child, and plant-friendly.

Mechanical rolling snow pusher. Using a conventional snow shovel is backbreaking, so why not use a mechanical rolling snow pusher? This tool is perfect for new contractors who are on a budget. It is also great for contractors who are working on a small driveway or parking lot.

Electric snow shovel. If a mechanical rolling snow pusher doesn't quite cut it for you, then invest in a motorized snow shovel. And since it is motorized, you don't need to expend a lot of energy pushing the machine. This snow removal equipment is available in corded and cordless versions, so choose one that is convenient for you.

Walk-behind power broom. Removing snow on a vast parking lot can be a piece of cake when you're using a walk-behind power broom. Simply crank it up and push it across the parking lot or driveway to get rid of snow.

If you're planning to purchase a walk-behind power broom for your asphalt maintenance business, then check out the Hydra Walk Behind Asphalt Power Broom.

The Hydra Walk Behind Power Broom is a gas-powered cleaning equipment used to prep asphalt surfaces for crack repair and sealcoating in the spring and summer. But this versatile machine is also a beast when it comes to removing snow from asphalt.
