    snow removal surplus

    The item in the picture is referred to as a "snow pump". The airport runway vehicles are usually designed to do several jobs and carry motorised brooms and snow plows for runway service.

    grisi24, a few years ago i got the fun job of cutting what was left of a shopping cart out of one of those. Buddy was loading dump trucks at a shopping center and found one in the pile. Took like 9 hours to get it out and fix what broke.

    FWIW, those tires aren't 90%, from what I can see they are actually only about 20%. They appear to be 48" GoodYear Radials, which normally have 1.5" tread depth or so when new... But it does seem to be in really nice shape.

    when you have a/c it help keep the steam / moisture build up off the windows in the winter.

    when you turn on defrost setting it provides heat. but also turns on the a/c to remove moisture.

    pop the hood on your ride and turn on the defrost. then watch the a/c pump cycle on and off like normal.

    this is why vehicles with no a/c have a much harder time keeping the windows dry in the winter on the inside.
