The article says "Chomper" used to be an electric snowblower, maybe it is based on the Ariens Amp 24?

Now...Now... Let's go easy on the millennials. I remember my grandfather having the same argument with my father when he bought his first snow blower. "Errrrr... what do you need a new fangled snow blower for? That's for rich spoiled lazy folks. Shovel works just as good and you get more exercise". Embrace technology...it's not going away.

Cant see a snow blower ever not being a hands on tool. Too many variables. But who knows.

Look at Mr. Fancy Freezn with a shovel! In *my* day, we used our hands! And when he was a boy, my dad had to use his feet!

I applaud the guy for making this. Maybe we'll get to see more videos, if we ever get any decent snow around here! Though I'll admit that the idea of a programmed version running autonomously makes me a bit nervous. But with cameras, and being controlled by an operator, that seems pretty cool.

We all do things to make our lives more pleasant and comfortable. Getting a snowblower. Or getting a snowblower with more power, heated grips, etc. Or getting your snowblower to stay outside in the cold by itself, while you stay warm!
