My new snow blower - video

Some of you may remember that I asked for advice on which snowblower
to purchase.

I made my decision, purchased a unit and put a video of it on youtube.

I think you'll agree that I made a wise decision.

I lived in the high country of Colorado for 13 years. Normal snowfall
through the winter season was 300 inches. I bought a snow plow for my
1967 Bronco Cost me $750.00 installed. Worked very good. When I moved
back to civilization sold the plow for $500.00 So that was a good
investment. WW
My snow removal. Except for the sidewalks :)

Golly Wiggly! I'm glad I live in Alabamastan where we don't need those
infernal contraptions. :cool:
I have a snow shovel hanging in my garage. It's useful for sweeping up
sawdust. I was going to hang it over the mantle as a reminder of Vermont
Winters, but SWMBO vetoed the idea.

Paid itself in the first winter '2008' I bought it. In good snow months I
can make $400/week minus fuel (about $100). That's an extra $5k in my
pocket a year. The Cummins diesel plus Allison tranny rox! 500+ foot-lbs
torque @ 2500rpm :)

I noticed the nice truck. We have the rare paralyzing snow storm down
here every now and then and all the transplanted Yankees laugh their
butts off at the tiny amount of snow it takes to bring Birmingham to
its knees. It's a weird place where there may be snow one day and 80°
temps the next day. The old saying around these here parts is, "If ya
don't like the weather, stick around, it'll change." :cool:

Yes, I do! ;-) Last Winter they cancelled work on the forecast of snow. It
didn't snow overnight so I didn't bother to check the web site before going
in. There were only two of us there. I bugged out at 10:00. It did snow
some about 4:00; all gone the next day.

I did, Auburn area. One of us is confused. ;-)
Have you been by The Swine Research Unit? I drove by there years ago
and the foul air choked me and almost stalled out my car. :cool:

catch it around 5 minute mark.

But seriously, it is so cold here that most people have stopped
wearing shorts!

When I was stationed in Alaska in the Coast Guard we had 2 machines
similar to that for clearing the roads and runways.

Each machine had a 12 cylinder diesel to run the truck and another 12
cylinder diesel to run the thrower.

One husky survived being thrown by the machine (broken hip), another
did not fair so well and had to be put down.

Man, I wish I had one of those last year here in North West Alabama. I
woke up one morning and there was 1/8" of snow on the driveway!! I
had to wait until 11:00AM for it all to melt so I could get down the
driveway hill.
I survived The Blizzard Of 93 in Birmingham, I never lost power because
I was downtown a few blocks from UAB and I sat up there in my second
story lair watching the National Guard Hummvees rattle up and down the
city streets and James Span the weatherman jumping up and down like an
excited chimp on the 24 hour TV weather disaster broadcast. A lot of
people lost power but I was cozy with the only problem being the phone
was out so I couldn't get on The Internet (dialup back then).

Isn't it potentially dangerous to allow pigs to be scientists? They could
eventually achieve world domination, and we'd all have to bow down before
our porcine overlords...
The put cop uniforms on them, like back in the Hippie days. :cool:

Evidently not. I haven't smelled anything particularly bad since I moved
here. Though I did move here from Vermont. The cows and politicians smell so
bad there that a square mile pigsty would smell sweet.
