    I was bored and surfing google pics for plow trucks and found this. Could be fun, looks like they took a fisher head gear and hydros, and then mounted the blower on it.

    i've seen blowers but not an a minute mount like that. I woudl think it'd be way to heavy for the motor and pump. very cool tho

    Yeah, I'm gonna bet that's a spoof or has some seriously jacked up motors to lift extra weight.

    Probably move some snow, though...

    My neighbor down the road has one of those on an excursion... on a Fisher MM2 headgear setup and he also has a SS X-blade to for the really light storms! Pretty sweet setup!

    i think it would be good for driveways but way too slow for commercial lots.

    Saw on in the UP of Michigan

    I saw one of these for the first time in the UP of Michigan. Went on a snowmobile trip and rented a cabin. The owner woke me up with the motor on the blower. Two passes on a narrow twisting drive about 1/4 mile to his three rentals and down to his house by the lake near Munising. Seemed to work well for the driveway since there was no areas to push the snow in his situation.

    I would spent the money on a v plow before buying that thing .Windy day and power snow your lot wouldnt even look done.

    that is wierd that you found that picture, that is my uncles landscape buisness and they use that on 56 drivways that they manage. It works amazing just pull straight in a couple times and its done.. they have alot of drifting up near houses and garages where a plow just cant really handle it and the blower just eats right through it. In the picture the blower is about 7 yrs old and now its about 10 or 11 and it still works great.

    A friend of mine bought one for doing condo driveways. It works perfectly as you can do one driveway in 2 passes instead of having to hand-blow them where plowing just isn't feasable. It was a requirement of the association contract he got, and there are 50-some odd driveways. Blowing by hand would be a nightmare.

    Its a slick setup, but downfalls I see are 1) slow for anything but a short, tight driveway, like a condo. 2) the unit itself has a motor on the front that drives the auger, and you have to put an external gas tank in the bed of your truck, then run rubber line from the tank to the motor somehow.

    They have electric start and remote chute angle, so you don't have to leave the truck. It bolts right up to an existing plow mount, and raises/lowers with the plow lift.

    I looked at one of those for my road - ended up with a v plow instead - mostly because the blower was a> too expensive, b> too slow, c> hard to get parts for, d>too many stories of the thing working great for 100 yds and dying. I've got 4 miles of road and about 300" of snow to move each season - much as I like the idea of it, it seemed like too much trouble.

    I agree, it might be nice for driveways and drifts, but anyone who would clear a parking lot with that would have to be nuts.
