    hmmm... can you put a plow on it? because that would be just awesome for sidewalks.. plow and salt all in one. Plus, if its got a motor, and probably cost as much as way too much... why cant it hold more then 125 lbs? Sweet contraption either way

    Forgot to ask, does it steer, or is it like a snow blower... looks like you can ride on it so i'd think it would steer but i don't see how

    Check out pic #2. You can see the pivot point. It's right underneath the front of the motor, just to the left of that white tube.

    It is articulated, it pivots in the middle much like a wheel loader. It has a 6hp Kawasaki Engine and a Hydrostatic Transmission. You just hop on the back and away you go! It holds two and a half bags of Salt/Peladow, but it pulls a 300lb guy in addition to the salt! It has a stainless frame, and seems to be commercial quality so far. wesport

    My guys talked me into purchasing it for some condo sidewalks, they also talked me into buying the Polaris ATV we just got. It is set up with a plow and salter. I was just going to use the salt spreader on the Polaris, but this was way cooler and I figured that I would be the first guy on plowsite with one so I couldn't resist! :p

    I think it probably cost more than most of my plow trucks, but I will get the exact figure and let you know... :dizzy: payup

    .....it holds 2 bags of how many kg's??? I'm guessing that would be 2 salt bags of 40kg each? Let us know how productive the machine is, then mabe I'll get one!xysport

    Hey Nice Pic

    Hey Nice Pic

    Not nice to use others work as you own :(

    But I would guess you would know that since you are using an image I shot back a few weeks ago at the show in Toronto.... guess that happens when a member posts a photo.... others just grab it and post as they see fit.... just venting... guess I am suffering from snow fall overload this season...
