did you see that on the first page of the connecticut section today? we could make it a form of vandalism. pay him to go out making snow on peoples driveways at night, and then they call and need plowing:D .

Looks interesting.

How many inches of snow can it make in an hour? Approminately how many gallons of water do it use in an hour?

I think that it would be neat to build it but before I thought that it need a small compressor, but I found out that you would need a really large compressor that delivers at least 12 CFM @ 90 PSI. Looking in catalog and I see some selling for $800 for just a compressor. Who would want to spend that much money? So what I am saying is, forget it.

It uses the pressure washer AND the air compressor. If I had those I'd try it to build a 1\4 or 1\2 pipe in the back yard for the snowboard. Since its not snowing here, I could charge the local snowboarders to come play for some extra dough ;-) Nah, I'll just drive north & pay for a lift ticket like every other time.

I have the pressure washer and compressor. I may also have some thime this weekend, and I will try and build such a thing. If it works out, I will post some pics. I am tired of seeing everyone else and their digital camera's, so I will get me one of those as well.

That was to funny watching Geoff Fox just get wet. The only area in the state that night that was above freezing was NH.
I bought all the plumbing pieces yesterday for under 10.00
I will assemble today, and see if I can get the thing to work.

yes it did work, but I need to get my larger gas powered compressor back from a job to really get the snow flying. And it has been rather warm, and actually to humid since tues morning.
