The largest winter storm to ever hit Chicago occured in January 1967. It snowed for 2 days, boasting 23 inches of snowfall and winds up to 53 MPH. If a snow storm of this capacity hits our beloved city again, will you be ready for it? The goal of Beverly Companies from the beginning was never to be the largest landscaping and snow removal company, but to be the best to weather whatever storms may come for our customers. Below are just a few of the equipment options we will use this winter to keep our properties safe and operable.

Its handlebar control, hydrostatic drive, and variable speed offer easy maneuverability. With heated hand grips, a headlight for visibility, and adjustable casters, it ensures comfortable and adaptable cleaning for various surfaces and conditions.
Toro Snow Blower
Snow blowers like the Toro Snow Blower, are machines designed to swiftly remove snow from driveways and pathways.

Small Brine Truck
Salt brine, a salt-and-water solution with a lower freezing point, prevents snow and ice from sticking to roads. Applied proactively (anti-icing) before winter storms, it reduces the need for excessive salt while enhancing road safety. Customizable blends improve longevity and minimize corrosion, offering an effective solution for safer winter road conditions without causing slipperiness when used appropriately.

It also has a salt spreader in the back for dual purposes.
Freightliner Salt Truck
A Freightliner salt truck is a specialized vehicle built for winter tasks like snow plowing and salt spreading. It’s a heavy-duty truck with durable construction and specific attachments for efficient snow removal and road salting, making it a reliable choice for clearing snow-covered surfaces during winter weather.
International Salt Truck
