    I would love to see that thing in action. If you've got any pics or a video please share. I see those machines on the news whenever NYC gets hit with a monster storm and I've always been intrigued.

    I use to load a 100 ton unit at EWR....with an old as skunk Fiat-Allis front loader..The trick to those jammies is to load as fast as you can to keep it full... otherwise you get steamed out and cant see squat...:eek:

    100 Ton is no joke! The 40 ton is a bit more user friendly, for solo missions.

    What do you think that 350 ton is worth an hour?:confused: Every snow state should have 1.

    I am looking at buying one for an account I have as opposed to hauling. Any price or info you can give me. Is it built per order or do they keep stock. What will you be charging per hour. Mine will be for a contract but I am talking to other companies about them using me for their snow removal. They burn like 40-60 gallons of diesel an hour I read on one site.

    Our 40 ton machine burns about 60 gallons per hour. At that pace you would be melting 40 tons of snow. The machine we have now retails for around $200,000. usa. We lease our machine monthly with a 4 month min. We purchased a Trecan machine and are very pleased with it. Email me for more info joel_yz@hotmail.com
