Municipalities can purchase dump bodies, snow plows, spreaders, chippers, vans, as well as other trucks and equipment, with Auto Truck Group’s easy-to-use Municipal Equipment Catalog. The catalog features an array of trucks – from pick-ups to platform beds, complete with the most in-demand upfit packages for the delivery of municipal services.

Government entities in Illinois, including Townships, Counties, Park Districts, Libraries, School Districts, and other non-profit organizations can take advantage of the Suburban Purchasing Cooperative (SPC) program for enhanced purchasing power. Auto Truck Group is a participating vendor (contract #109) in the SPC program. See the 2012 SPC Joint Purchasing Program booklet for program specifics and membership.

Snow and Ice

Written by
Stay ahead of the weather with professional snow plows, spreaders, and pre-wet systems from Auto Truck Group.

Our selection of municipal snow equipment includes standard and “V”plows to fit SUV’s, light pick-ups, ¾ ton, and larger trucks.

Salt/ice control and sand spreaders are available in several models shown to be best-suited for municipal service. We offer models for quick installation – whether on a pick-up trucks or a dump body, as well as a wide choice of controllers.

Pre-wet systems spray deicing salt with a solution of liquid chemical before spreading the salt on the roadway. Pre-wetting the salt helps it work more effectively as a deicing agent for two reasons: First, wet salt clings to the road instead of bouncing off or being swept off by traffic. The result is that less salt is spread, saving money and minimizing the threat to the environment. Second, to be effective as a deicing agent, salt requires moisture. Moisture dissolves the salt, releasing heat and thereby melting the ice and snow, as well as breaking the ice-road bond. When temperatures drop below freezing there is no moisture on the road, and salt alone is ineffective. Pre-wetting the salt, however, ensures that there will be enough moisture to facilitate the melting process.
