    Looks very ineffective on snow more than a dusting.

    First time I've ever seen something like that. Why use those instead of a plow?

    Maybe for brick surfaces (like the one they are parked on)??

    Nice setup, a mini airport rig...
    They use brooms anything less than 3" without any issues...
    Now how does it work on road debris and leaves?

    Watched the video, it works good. One of the problems I see though is the snow piling on top of the broom, then spilling off when you raise it. Maybe you could put some type of piece to roll the snow ahead(when pushing) or behind(when pulling). Like this, side view, \_____/ Should keep most off it off.

    If that broom turned like a plow it would be even better. Looks like it does a good job but to speed it up it needs to turn.

    im not feeling it, looks like it takes forever to plow a small driveway with all the runoff, i cant even imagine trying to use the broom in wet snow, it struggled in the powder.

    Unity Race Way used to have a Fisher Speed Caster with an 8' broom on it in the Summer. They used it to sweep up speedy dry that they put on the track when there was liquid on the track.

    Those look pretty sweet. They look like they have their niches (brick drives/maybe sports tracks or fields when it snows).

    I think it looks pretty damn cool. Obviously it isn't meant to replace a snowplow as many here seem to think by the negative comments. I think it certainly has it's niche and I would'nt mind having one myself!
