The Yeti snow remover, developed in Quebec by Michel Couture, president of Mire Equipment and former president of Couture Transport, is fully automatic and cleans roofs of any vehicle or trailer. Its integrated snow blower projects ice or snow 20 feet from the run-up lane into one pile, or into a dump truck or snow-melter. Pay-back is rapid, the company claims, adding that roof damage and accidents are history. It’s distributed by SecuriTrim in Ville de Saint-Georges, PQ.

Named after the legendary Himalayan abominable snowman, the Yeti deals with the very serious implications – fines, demerit points, and possible liability claims – that can easily result from accidents caused by windborne pieces of ice and snow from trailer roofs.

New models have all electrical cables mounted either within the frame or protected under metal sheaths. This eliminates any possibilities for vandalism. Upright supports are bolted instead of welded to the angled legs, making both shipping and installation less awkward, and parts are easily replaceable should an accident occur. An integrated washing system is being designed that would allow a Yeti to be used for cleaning.

The snow remover was designed and built to clean snow and ice off nearly every type of heavy vehicle. The company says engineers and electronic technicians had their hands in every aspect of Yeti’s design. Each one is individually crafted by experienced machinists and technicians.
