    I was in Denver this past weekend and stopped by a local snow plow outfitter. Found this awesome blower in their yard. I'm willing to bet this thing could chew up a lot of snow, fast.

    Never seen a walk behind that big before, they have it painted in really nice colours. Where would they need something like that? It probably costs more then a pick up!

    I watched the video of those things in action and I'm not impressed. A Honda HS1132 will outperform either one of those machines hands down. Those things are all show and no go. :dizzy:

    Honestly, it looks ridiculous to me! They weigh in at almost 3000lbs!!! And they look like they tend to ride up over the snow on the first pass instead of digging into it.

    I could see the sidewalk cracking under the weight of one of those, and it sure aint going into the back of your pickup!

    How easy do you think the diesel engine will be to start in the Winter? Sounds like lots of prep to keep it ready...

    I will admit that it would be cool to tell your peirs here that you have one, but I don't think it's all that practical...

    Just my opinion! payup

    I watched the video and I can't figure out why you'd want something that big with out a cab.

    I watched almost all the videos on thier site (Snow Envy) and actually they are pretty cool. They have some mega snow throwers they make and move some massive amounts of snow.

    that stuff also looked like hardpacked snow and it was like 4-5 foot deep. It was not the best way to demo a product. Using it at resorts for thier large open areas like its designed for i bet kicks royal butt.
