That is kinda cool, but it needs some sort of enclosure to protect me from the elements

I would think it would have trouble pulling when it runs low of salt. Plowing and pulling someone may be too much for it with a low weight.

Awesome unit, but for $1500.00 I would rather put that towards a used quad. I don't see a weedeater engine moving the weight oif the machine, salt, pulling a rider on the sulky and plowing snow!

400 in Use

Company Rep onsite at the show said they had 40 demos in use all last winter and they performed very well. They used the feedback they got to come up with the final retail product.......

I told them I would demo one and if I was happy with it after the first full season I would buy one....lol..... sorry...no demos this season... lol

Guess I won't be the first on the block with this machine....

Demoed where, Mexico City. Tough winter last year. Mucha gracius gringo.


Think about it. You will need some horsepower to move a 12 inch snow with that plow.
Nice concept though

For all of you landscapers on here. Have you ever been riding along on rocket wheels behind a mower and clipped a root or rock even walking for that matter? Of course you have. Now put a sharp edge on that mower and a bunch of sand. I dont care if that thing has a trip edge or not. My ribs are sore just looking at that thing.

That looks like a good way to get a nut shot when you hit a bump.

i was thinking the same thing, except it would not be your ribs that would be sore. it would be your face as you go over the bars and slide to a stop.
