M-B; Companies,, Inc. When it comes to airport snow removal, the MB3 is in a class all by itself. The MB3 is a versatile custom cab forward airport chassis designed for front mounted plows, front mounted brooms, tow brooms, underbody scrapers, de-icing systems, and other attachments. A snow removal workhorse, the MB3 axles are designed for sharp steering cramp angles to provide smaller turning circles and maximum maneuverability.
