“We ran the buses through and it ran absolutely perfect.”
– Dennis Fletcher, Transportation Manager

With a fleet of school buses and a crew in their 60s, manually clearing rooftop snow to get kids to school was an enormous challenge at Foxborough Public Schools, in Foxborough, MA. It took forever, wore crews out physically, and inevitably left a dangerous strip of snow that couldn’t be reached on the top of the bus roof. The FleetPlow MD-12B made life a whole lot easier for everyone – no more heavy-lifting and raking, plus greater road safety with buses fully cleared of snow before hitting their routes.
