I had the opportunity to operate one of these at work back in the late 60's. When I started looking for my first snowblower, in 1983, I did not look for another one of these.
These things were a bear to operate, and as long as a small car it seemed. No power steering, nothing between the augers and those hidden curbs, not much directional control, and the chute adjustment required quite a bit of muscle since it was always rusting. No hand warmers, no beverage warmer, and the one I used was an absolute pig to start.
I much preferred the Bombardier sidewalk snow plow.
Work fascinates me.
I can watch somebody work for hours...
