    I saw this for sale last year.
    I said "WOW" that is the biggest hand controlled blower that I have ever seen.Don't know much about it.Just wish I had a reason to justify it.

    That has to be a modified picture... the snow is not even coming out of the chute in the correct spot....

    No, it is real,

    The chute rotates to either just blow out or into the truck loader/windrow chute.
    Isnt it bizarre?

    That is the way most big blowers work,either just blowing it to one side or use the chute to load trucks or in confined areas.

    For being so big, it does not look like it clears a large path though....

    How about this snowblower...

    That hemi would look good in my family room.lol
    I am pretty sure if I remember correctly that it would cut a 48" path.

    Yeah. I think they are made for Switzerland or some of those countries that get a lot of snow.

    What in the world

    That my friends is a 1958 Rolba Snowblaster, Model R40.
    the engine is a 35 HP Volkswagen industrial unit.the unit can clear a path 48 inches wide and can throw the snow about 100 feet.(depending on the snow of course), it is 8 feet to the top of the chute and weighs 2000 pounds.

    I do have some snowblowers that I collect in various stages of repair and this is one that was on a site that I belong to for collecting these items.
