BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Our Snowplow spotlight series continues with Plowtron and Plowdypus.

Plowtron is driven by Chadwick Morse on Route 66 in Randolph and Route 12 from Randolph to Bethel. Kids in Bethel Elementary’s fourth-grade class chose the name. The principal said kids in each class came up with a name and then everyone voted on their favorite. Morse says he enjoys the many challenges that come along with winter maintenance.

Plowdypus is driven by Johnathon Hayes, who says he loves his truck’s name. He operates out of the same location as his father. The plow was named by the Open Fields School in Thetford Hill. The kids came up with 10 names, including Plower Power, but landed on Plowdypus. We’re told there are only about 20 kids in the whole school and they were very excited to meet their truck.

The plow naming contest was organized by VTrans last year.
