    That thing is awsome!! Can you program it like those vacums to plow on its own? You could be on to something real big here. What did it cost yo do build something like that? Thing is fast and does the job too

    All I know is it cost alot and took sometime. It 1st had tracks on it but it brake the drive all the time. it is about 900 pounds. He can control it from the garage computer are remote. He was talking about making it programable but to much liability. It could go right threw a house.

    He needs to build some ground clearance into it. Also the plow needs to angle more. What happens in Jan. when the sides of the side walks are 12" high with snow, nowhere to push snow out of the way. It's a neat idea but..... needs some work.

    That is sweet. Could put a guy in the passengers seat while plowing and he could do the sidewalks while your plowing

    the reason it works so good is because of all the weight of the batteries.

    I agree the plow needs a little more angle, it looks pretty beefy for sure.

    can I get it in a V?

    does it need Timbern's?

    does it have down pressure?

    can i use it instead of a halfton?

    how will it react to Fluid Film?

    Can I put 30's on it with straight pipes?

    That thing is awesome! You could do the walks all from the comfort of your truck! A lot bigger than I thought it would be but it was very impressive. Bring that thing to Elgin some time!
