Y-Swallow / snowplow


Every year, accidents of soldiers and volunteers frequently occur due to snow removal operations on the roofs.
Although customized snow removal equipments are perfect for installation on concrete buildings there are limited places, such as greenhouses and types of buildings. We also found unusual transportation problems in mountain areas, which mainly hold heavy snow problems. It is important to finish snow removal operations in a quick and easy manner. To solve the problems above, we applied type of ducted fan to our 'Y-Swallow' in order to remove snow properly on time.
