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

Humor aside, I'm not sure about the forward visibility of that - plus I'm
surprised there's even the need for the blowers; we get some pretty harsh
winters up here in northern MN, and a bobcat on its own copes just fine.
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

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." 8-)

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.

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.
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
