    Wondering what you guys think of this thing for pushing snow. Found it at RB auctions in Manchester, NH. It has blizzard controls and a Blizzard 8611pp that is being sold with it. It's is super clean, no rust anywhere on it. Four bran new tires, LED lights all over it, new upholstery. This thing is a Beast.

    Looks like an airplane tug. I think it's sweet but for how much?

    Not sure. Looked it up online says it's top speed 18mph. It's 4x4x4 all wheel steer, crab steer, Perkins diesel and weighs 13,000 pounds.

    Looks like it would do a decent job at least in Shamrocks pictures

    That kicks all kinds of tail. At 13.000 lbs and the ability to pull an airliner, that should push good.

    Did you buy it?

    No did not buy the tug. I was the one selling at the RB auction in New Hampshire. It sold for $6,000 and the Blizzard 8611 Power Plow sold for $1,500.
    The person who bought the tug did not buy the plow that went with it. It was a good auction to buy some good used plowing equipment at cheap prices..
