Note that the truck in this picture was modified to assist snow clearers. Chains have been attached to the wheels to produce better traction on snowy or icy surfaces. Also, a metal skirt has been installed around the wheels, to prevent the snow pushed aside by the plough blade mounted on the front from falling back under the wheels and causing the vehicle to get stuck.
