    Yep that is cool! Was the truck empty when the video started? 2 minutes to fill one truck man that's fast! What's a load like that weigh?

    thats a waste of time and fuel. Much faster with a loader.

    I agree an expierenced operator can load much faster and just as much snow. Also when blowing into truck if temps are not corect you cna have a heck of time getting it out.

    have to agree, seems slow, and not all that much. I remeber a video or pictures of someone loading a truck with just a bobcat, but with hydraulic dumping bucket, now that put a good load on compared to size of loader loading the truck.

    besides that, any good size loader could do that faster and same amount. as for temperature, I guess thats depending on exhaust heated box or not.

    The city uses the same thing here. I was stuck behind one the other day, seemed pretty fast to me. plus in a tight spot like a road, trafic keeps moving (slowly) and the dumps line up one behind the other. Just a nice drive down the street.

    Wrong. He's getting more into the truck and 2 minutes to load isn't "slow" by any means.

    You need to keep in mind, a guy who is running an operation with equipment like that probably knows a thing or two about efficiency.

    I would think that a guy like Neige wouldn't use a blower to load trucks if it wasn't fast enough,you could never get that amount of snow in a truck with a loader,the city uses that kind of blower on a loader they have each shift anywhere from 8-12 tandems and 2 triaxles and the blower is waiting so I think it would be the way to go.

    There is no way he loaded a tandom in 2 minutes with that blower. I use to work for a county and that is not possible. no way.

    I'm sure paul knows a little bit more about snow removal than most here.. The volume of snow in that truck as well as working in a tighter area is way faster than a loader.

    Two minutes loading a truck that way is believable, that's how our city gets clear of the snow, a grader blades the snow out of the parking ares and into a huge windrow in the middle of the street, whatever way works though.

    What are you talking about, do you have any idea or experience. It is the most efficient use of time and fuel.
    How can he get just as much snow in. Blown snow gets super compressed, almost 18 tons in there. If I used a loader bucket, maybe 10 tons.
    The snow just slides out real fast and clean.
