Wintry weather 'snow problem' at Firs

AN OXFORDSHIRE Mitsubishi retailer has shown the recent bad weather is ‘snow problem’ by using a plough to clear the way for customers

Wintry weather is 'snow problem' with Firs Garage - Meyer snow plough available for Mitsubishi L200 4x4 pickup

The three-and-a-half-acre site at family-owned Firs Garage, in Hook Norton, near Banbury, was covered in six inches of snow during the recent cold snap.

But partner Dean Wood fitted a Meyer DrivePro snow plough to a Mitsubishi L200 to take on Mother Nature, clearing the area and the surrounding roads.

He said: ‘Without clearing the snow from our site it would have been a mess for our customers.

‘We’ve got the service area as well so it was important to keep it clear.

‘The ploughs are a quick and easy way of turning your normal, everyday vehicle into a snow plough and it’s a joy to drive.’

Each night when snow was forecast, Dean kept an eye on the weather and got up early to clear the the site.

Last year Firs Garage sold a number of the ploughs, which start at £2,895, to Oxfordshire County Council to help them keep the roads clear.
