What the h-e-l-l is that thing???
I've never seen anything like that. EVER.
It's a whole other engineering take on how to throw snow.
Who made it and where was it manufactured???
I have no idea if it deals with snow efficiently or not, but it is definitely unique, and I imagine somewhat rare.
Definitely offbeat......
It's a good thing if it runs 'cause parts would likely be unobtainium.
Can't be more a couple more of these in existence......most probably long gone to scrapper heaven...

They are rare, but we see them here...rare, yet common enough that we just created a Bobcat subforum here! Because several people requested one.

I have been scanning Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse NY craigslist for years, mostly just for fun, looking at old snowblowers, and I probably see four or five a year for sale just in Western NY.

Not as rare as the ancient Craftsman/Homko's..we see about one of those a year here on this forum.
