Ice Breaker

The Town of Castle Rock, Colo., uses a Volvo ice breaker that helps remove the ice build-up on streets that are north facing, said Paul Colell, fleet service manager.

Before purchasing this piece of equipment, the town used a motor grader and would pop the ice with the blade. Now, the operator can easily break up ice with this piece of equipment and then use a plow to get the ice out of the street. Colell said the machine allows the town to keep up with resident complaints about ice much faster and with less damage to other equipment.
