"sno-ver kill"

I don't know whether or not this video has already made the rounds in this forum, but I couldn't stop watching it until it ended, and then I still wanted to see more:

nice build but I think I would have used at least a 13hp motor for the blower

Very cool, a lot of time and effort went into that build. I could have done without the irritating music though.

Very creative and appears to be well done. I have to say, personally, if all the creator has to plow is the driveway sure seems to be a lot of effort to create this for so little usage. If on the other hand it was done just for the personal challenge, then person lived up to the task.

Kept him out of "trouble" those 9 months.

My thoughts...

1) That's a lot of auger in front of him and I'd have to believe his vision is somewhat blocked. I could see a camera in front being an add-on tweak. Maybe re-purpose a back-up camera somehow.

2) I assume he has a long drive and deals with a lot of snow yearly. Besides a LOT of time on his hands and an ultimate garage to do the work at.

3) Couldn't help but notice he had a walk-behind 2 stage on stand-by in the last part of the video. Must be for more precise cleaning in tight spots per #1 and #2 above.

Awesome machine though. Mad Scientist type stuff.
