    Well, Im back and it was an interesting day. Met people from all around the world who do snow. Europe sure has some amazing equipment, and so are the price tags. So we stop at the Canadian pavilion and while I am listening to a guest speaker, I notice this huge picture of a loader and blower at work. I could not believe my eyes, it was our equipment. Someone must have taken the picture this past December, it was pretty cool.

    I'm looking at the pic and the snow flying through the air , looks to me like its NOT coming from your blowers stack.

    But congrats on the pic.

    Cool catch Paul! But is that event competing with "Entre Neige" in any way?

    im not sure what the technical term is, but to throw the snow farther they use the holysh*t chute.

    congrats on the pic, many of our dreams right there.

    Ya it's meant to be like that to cast the snow. Instead of passing through a great big long chute with lots of friction and bends and turns it simply flies out of a small chute right off the imperlor. This is often used at snow dumps where blowers are strictly used for casting they don't even have a big long chute to load trucks.... Lucky Neige has both options prsport

    I thought about it, but really what am I going to do with a pic that big.

    Not really, there were booths from all around the world, and its really geared to dots and munis, my show is greared to the contactor.
    Thats exactly why I went, signed on 15 new exhibitors. My goal is to have more than 75 this year.
    Thats right, when we stack and there is space we blow right out the side, the drum around the impeller rotates, so you can blow left or right. <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/YSAd3HjE5tI&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/YSAd3HjE5tI&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>
