This new breed of snow machine does double duty on Lambert’s airfield as both a snowplow and a jetbroom.

Big machines are needed to clear snow from Lambert’s runways and make sure our airlines can continue to operate when severe weather hits. St. Louis was hit with its first snow storm of the year this week. To conquer the snow, the Airport has a new breed, a new beast, among its fleet of snow removing machines. It’s a MB5 Multi-Tasking Snow Vehicle (Manufactured in Wisconsin). This snow machine is a double-duty workhorse that can do the job of both a snow plow and a jet broom. It’s powered by two 500 Horsepower engines. Lambert has seven of these machines which will be back on the job this weekend when another storm is expected to hit the area.
