A company in Quebec, Canada, has come up with a new kind of
snow and ice remover for trucks' trailers.
The device, called a "Yeti," features a large, metal
framework that the truck drives slowly through as a three-stage snow blower
goes to work on the trailer roof.
David Russell, marketing director for Mire Equipment, told
"Land Line Now" on XM Satellite Radio that the combination of a metal auger, a rubber
auger and a broom remove ice as well as snow.
Russell said that so far, the company's buyers have
primarily been trucking companies - ones that are willing to pay the device's $58,000
