    Ok the long awaited video, I believe this one does it much more justice than the snow dragon tv one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9omfXqijZFg A test for you equipment enthusiast, what is that loading the melter. :drinkup:

    Sweet! I've been waiting for you to post a video of that thing in action. Are you satisfied with it's performance? It looked like it was working really well, just want to hear your opinion.

    Looked like it was working well with the light fluffy snow, the water was sure pouring out of it. I've never seen a loader like that before.

    Fermec it is, model 660 B. I thought it would have been a bigger challenge
    50 gallons an hour :drinkup:

    You just don't know who you are dealing with there Niege. Lol

    Looks like you can fill that melter up pretty quick. do you have to wait on it, or just keep loading?

    Awesome video. Having been on their web-site before, i assume that's the smaller version? It looks like it's built on a car trailer.

    Clearly, you know your stuff, LOL. :drinkup: As for the melter, it should handle two buckets a minuet. Tomorrow I will try it out, for 1 hour, and count the loads. I also have to measure the bucket to have a good idea of the size. Will keep you posted.

    The Massey awnser was right as well, I would have taken Kobelco as well. Both those were Fermecs as well.
