I’m excited about another great Maine winter. Are you ready for snow? And, more importantly, is your snow and ice equipment ready for winter?
What’s that? That problem you had last spring with your plow didn’t magically fix itself over the summer? Then, get over here to Messer Truck Equipment, and we’ll make sure you’re ready to plow!
Most users don’t know what’s gone wrong if something goes awry with their winter equipment – typically, they’ve pressed the On button, and nothing’s happening, and that’s the limit of the diagnosis. Whether it’s a problem with your electric motor or harnesses, hydraulic valves or cylinders, cutting edge, headlights or whatever else, we’ve got you covered. And we’ve got the know-how to fix any problem you run into. Our Fisher-certified technicians and master mechanics will work as quickly as possible to diagnose and fix the issue.
We service Fisher snowplows and sanders for people who make their living plowing in the winter, municipalities, construction and landscaping companies, small-business owners, and even homeowners. We also stock snow pushers (for front-end loaders and backhoes) and accessories. Even if your equipment is part of a large fleet, your mechanic will need access to parts. So we’ll stock the parts you’ll need this winter.
Plan ahead to stay on the road
If you missed our annual Plow Clinic last month, now’s a good time to get your plow or other equipment checked to be sure everything’s in order. Once the first major storm hits, you don’t want to feel panicked if you hook up your equipment and it doesn’t work or it stops in the middle of a job. In other words, avoid the rush – we typically have a line of people needing immediate service as soon as the first storm hits.
Our goal is to limit your downtime as much as possible. Toward that end, we've extended our hours and make repairs our priority during and after storms. We’ll be open 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. now through the winter, and we’ll extend our hours further to meet demand as necessary.
By the way, if your plow fails in the field, there are a couple of ways to get it off the ground so that it can be easily and safely be transported to be fixed. We put together a short video (see below) to show you how.
If you want absolute peace of mind and are ready to upgrade, we have new plows in stock. And a lot of people may not know this, but we do take used Fisher plows in trade toward the purchase of a new one. The value of a used plow depends, of course, on its age and condition. But we want your used Fisher plow!
Happy fall and winter!
