this blower has now become a vehicle

I saw this for sale, owner had this made at a shop, gave me something to think about. I'm curious to know how well this would work and would it be legal since it now a motor vehicle. Could be compared to a lawn tractor so maybe ok to turn around in the street? Power steering on the tractor's blower in a must. Someone here may have gotten the idea of making this and trying it? Sure gave me a chuckle.

Depending on the weight of the operator, it may remove too much weight from the bucket.

That's great!

Although I think if ever there was a vehicle that needed heated seats, it would be that one.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

That will destroy the snowblower transmission very quickly..(no matter what transmission type)
Snowblowers arent designed for towing!
cute idea, but not realistic in practice.

I have a Gravely Convertible. The call it a convertible because with a pull of a pin off the front or removal of 4 bolts it converts to a snowblower, lawnmower, brush hog, rototiller, power broom, water pump, generator, post hole auger, shredder chipper, a multitude of attachments. Because it also has a mower, it has a choice of a riding sulky or a steering sulky. As a lark, and curiosity, I tried both sulkies. It was not a good experience. The Gravely has enough weight for traction, heavy front end, enough power and gearing to pull you, just boring to sit, and steering was a nuisance. It was not fun.

When using the Gravely with the sulky...NEVER turn and go up a hill at the same time......the handlebars will hit you in the crotch every time. Ask how I know.
