MARTINS FERRY - Heaps of snow are no obstacle this winter. Staffilino Chevrolet is offering a line of Meyer snow plows to deal with the white stuff.
"We're the only new car dealer in the U.S.A. that's a franchise Meyer snow plow dealer," said Joe Staffilino, owner. He pointed out several features on the showroom model, including lights, tire angling and an EZ Mount system. "It's ready to make you money."
"We're a fully stocked Meyer snow plow dealer," said Brad Delvecchio, sales, adding the business is able to perform warranty and repair work and professional installation. The business has been an authorized Meyer dealer for about one year. The business covers the sales, service and installation of all Meyer products.
"They're the prime brand in snow plows," he said.
Delvecchio added the dealership's parts department carries paint, hydraulic fluid and other fast-moving parts that could fail while plowing a lot or driveway and need replacement.
"If we don't have it, we can order it," he said.
The business has a certified Meyer installer on the premises. A technician attended a two-day course at a Meyer snow plow facility in Cleveland and is able to service a snow plow on any make of truck.
Delvecchio noted the business has done well since sales began.
Several plows are in stock for immediate delivery and one half-ton 4x4 truck is equipped with a plow for demonstration. The products include home plows for private use, adaptable to any small SUV or truck, and commercial plows for dump trucks and sport utility vehicles. The dealership also offers salt spreaders for up to 350 pounds of salt.
He said the dealership offers contractors a quick turnaround and installation.
"We're getting ready for winter," Delvecchio said. "Last year was a good start. This year will be even better."
