We have 3 main machine types that are used for thickening the ice pads or ice roads:

Flood pumps

- are very portable and you can use any number of pumps to build larger areas fast. Pads or roads is ideal.

Flood auger

- is highly mobile, being towed behind bombardier or truck. This machine can sneak into lakes that only a snowmobile can get into. This is a great unit for road building.

High Pressure Spray rigs

- are for thicker pad development, they are significantly heaver than the other 2 options but the ice gain per day is phenomenal. Generally used for high capacity drill pads. Excellent for 24hour operation.

Our fleet of equipment is growing every year.
