Yea the village road department has 2 of them here. And this year they decided not to use them to save money on fuel and labor. So they just sit in the garage.:confused:

The village of depew has one of them and one v plow machine on tracks. Too bad they hit some concrete thing Wednesday morning with the v and F it up bad :dizzy: Tore and bent the hell out of the frame. I guess its going to cost $12,000 to fix.

My city has 3 or 4 of them for throughout town. A couple of years ago one of the guys at DPW went off the sidewalk and rolled it on it's side. They righted it with a loader and it drove away. They also have a boom mower on the front of it during the summer months to cut back the sides of the roads. They do move some snow.

If my town had one of those tool cats they would have that thing so messed up. I would give it about an hour before they are on the phone with the dealer

I hear you.
The town I grew up in had several Bombardier tracked machines(JW's) and they would run those up the snowbanks and over on their heads all the time.Enough so they had to wear helmets.lol
The Bobcat Toolcat also has a blower.No photos yet.The town has I think a Trackless also..

The village of Williamsville and Kenmore plow ALL the town walks.
I forgot one of my customers had a sidewalk & pushed snow up on it a few times. Williamsville had no problem blasting through the piles I made.
Back when I lived in Kenmore I couldn't believe how fast they clean the walks with their V, even after the road plows pushed everything up there.
The towns have sidewalk laws requiring you to keep them clear, The towns do it as a "courtesy" when the machines go down your on your own...

Another Bone head story.....One of the DPW guys(Old Friend) was running a newer style Bombardier(SW) track machine with a vee across the causeway and was moving right along(approx 40mph) when the nose dove down and the cutting edges of the vee caught between two manhole covers,stopped the machine instantly threw him out the windsheld(Not wearing seat belts) He landed about 15' in front of the machine in the street with a cut up face...Live and learn...
