Yes Zamboni's use a different plug, as the J1772 standard is quite common now days it would make sense if they used J1772.....the chargers I've seen on a Zamboni looks to be wall mounted and give off quite a bit of heat, I'm thinking it may have the "charger" on the wall vs charger in the car like our Leafs and other devices that use J1772.
But it's entirely possible... Maybe Red Green retrofitted the charger to be an OBC and made the hardwire connection into a J1772 outlet. You can buy those on Amazon cheaply. Unlikely, but possible.
I suspect this is the case (although it probably wasn't R.G who did it)
I peered thru the vent holes when I took the pictures and did see a control board with flashing lights etc. feeding what looked like lead acid packs somewhat like a forklift.
By the time I got back the Zamboni had left , maybe off to the local DCFC for a top-up?
Not a real big town here so I expectations are high to someday meet the owner and investigate further.
I just couldn't resist to post this as I got a good laugh out of it
