    That's pretty cool...but listen to the blower that's running at the 13 second mark...doesn't it sound like the piston is ready to fly right through the side of that thing? If nothing else that machine is low on oil.

    (You could make a killer snow fort with those bricks...my kids would love it)

    So we should invest in some of those giant ice tongs? When homeowners buy one of these they are going to want someone to take away those pesky blocks of snow.

    Seems kind of pointless to me. What good is making the payments on a bunch of robots, while still paying your shovelers to haul the snow bricks around.

    Why does all the equipment and such I ever see come out of Japan seem to have some goofy ass looking happy face on it?

    Snow Forts

    Could make some really cool snow houses, but I would not pay $8,000 for it.

    lol that thing is about as pointless as it gets.
    for $8K you might as well just install a heated drive way or an even cheaper option , heated mats .

    Maybe you could use them instead of Mafia Blocks for storing your salt?

    Hey, why do I have a salt island in the middle of a lake....???

    Its probly a good machine if you have kids & always build snow forts as a tradition. But still very expensive.:confused:
