YFC headed to Fredericton’s “Touch a Truck” May 25

The Fredericton International Airport Authority is excited to be a part of Touch a Truck again this year! This event is always popular, and in addition to sponsoring a class from the Lincoln Elementary School, this year we get to bring the Larue T85 snowblower to the event.

It can clear 4,000 tonnes of snow per hour, and has a combined horsepower of 775. Good thing, too, because this snowblower is the machine that cleared this snowbank on the apron earlier this year:

Dan Hovey helps demonstrate just how much snow we had this winter.

Come join us at Touch a Truck on Sunday, May 25, and you can ask Lester what it took to get that snowbank cleared – or anything else you’d like to know about the snowblower.
