Dean Leonetti Jr. turns his front yard into an equipment showroom with a snow sculpture of a Takeuchi TL220.
By the time the record-breaking snowfall that began in the Philadelphia area on the evening of Feb. 9 was over, most people were happy to dig out their cars, clear their driveways and sidewalks and hope that it didn’t ever snow like that again. A few of the more enterprising folks made snowmen and snow forts with the kids.
But Dean Leonetti Jr., skid steer/trencher specialist of Eagle Power and Equipment, headquartered in Montgomeryville, Pa., took advantage of the unprecedented quantity of snow in his front yard to put a shout out for the industry. With the assistance of Darrell Kirban, Kirban Customs Inc., Kintnersville, Pa., his daughter Devyn and Leonetti’s daughter, Bella, Leonetti turned his front yard into an equipment showroom with a snow sculpture of a Takeuchi TL220.
The highly detailed replica was made entirely of snow, no cheating allowed, and was complete down to a “cab” that could be sat in and a bucket full of, what else, snow. With the extended forecast around Leonetti’s home calling for temperatures staying well within the 30s, Leonetti can expect to enjoy the new addition to his yard for quite some time.
