Fall is here - winter to follow

Just a cheery note that winter inevitably follows fall. Simard Suspensions in Baie-St-Paul, QC were busy this summer fitting out winter road maintenance vehicles, including this Freightliner plow/spreader.
A model 114SD, it seems to have most of the required bells and whistles, including a sizeable grit/sand/salt spreader body, also built by Simard and a heavy plow frame forward. Note the hatch in the hood, allowing for limited service without having to de-mount the plow to tilt the hood.
The under body scraper is not one I've seen before. Simard is licensed to install Everest snow plows. Everest (of Ayer's Cliff, QC) is now part of Wasau-Everest (of Wisconsin), which includes Frink and several other companies including Sno-Go so the under body unit may be a Wasau.
