That's the way to do driveways where a plow isn't a good option. I wonder if the chutes and deflectors are remote controlled.

Remember, when repairing critical items...expensive is cheap, and cheap is expensive.

Not sure but the control panel has a double power window switch so I’m thinking they rotate.

They look like single stage blowers still want it though

Thumbs down snow etc.

Yes, its a pair of single stage snow casters welded together with a center mounted worm to spur gear drive.

They are going to find out it is not going to work well and bog down in snow pack as the solid cross augers have to have a rotation speed of 500 RPM or greater to cast snow like they are supposed to.

I gotta say "NO". As slow as you'd have to go for that to work you wouldn't need a truck. Maybe a tractor or two.

I would offer $400.00 for the whole thing and take it apart and set it up with one cross auger and a 31 horse V twin Yamaha.and mount it on the three point hitch of a john Deere series 1 mule.

Hopefully at $6K it comes with the truck but I'd like to know what they used for power for the blower ??

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
