Don’t Fall Behind When the Fall Snow Falls
By By Mike McClanahan / September 30, 2022

It’s easy to feel fine when fall weather fills your mind with fun and football. But use that fine fall forecast to fix up your fleet for the coming fall snow.

Don’t Get Caught with Your Plows Down

Mid-October is the average date for the Denver area’s first snowfall and so far this year we’ve been blessed with beautiful weather as summer turns to autumn. But the mountains have already seen their first dusting of the white stuff and nearby ski resorts are already planning their opening dates.

If your plows, scrapers, or other snow removal equipment haven’t been inspected and serviced yet, or if you’ve been putting off repairs or additions, fall is your last opportunity to get your winter fleet ready before we’re into the busy season.

So don’t get caught with your plows down when the heavy stuff comes, as it inevitably will.

O.J. Watson Equipment strives to maintain sufficient parts inventories to equip and service the needs of our customers, but supply chain reliability is still subject to pressures beyond our control and that of our vendors. That’s why it’s doubly important to anticipate your fleet’s needs and act early.

Beat the Rush

Our service and repair departments see an uptick in demand as the snow and ice removal season gets closer. Getting your fleet ready to roll before the busy times hit not only makes you ready for winter but helps avoid extended downtime if service and parts backlogs happen. So make sure you’re at the front of the line instead of waiting while the other guys are on the road ahead of you.

O.J. Watson Equipment is Ready When You Are

From pickups to snowblowers, O.J. Watson Equipment can service, repair, and replace snow and ice removal parts and equipment to give you a head start on the coming winter weather. We stock the parts you need to keep your trucks on the road and on the job. Our suppliers are the most trusted brands in the business, and since we build custom trucks, we have more brands and varieties of parts available than other dealers.

If you want to upgrade your existing equipment, our expert fabricating division can build custom racks, cab guards, saddlebags, or any other additions or modifications to make your truck—or entire fleet—a perfect fit for your seasonal needs. We also retrofit and repurpose existing work trucks and can equip any truck with multiple attachments for maximum efficiency and ROI.

Plus, with 20 mechanics on the floor in the Denver shop and 10 more in Greeley, we’re ready to keep your trucks performing at their best with minimal down time.
