    The village dpw where I live uses a piece of machinery that has the front end of a snowblower that brings the snow onto a conveyor belt and into dump trucks behind it for snow removal. Does anyone have any pics of anything similar to this?

    does it have scoops that help corral the snow onto the conveyor?

    Probably an Athey belt loader, I don't think they are made anymore. Penn-Hazle Equipment appears to have some used ones, try this link:


    Update: Athey was bought out by Leeboy, try this link:
