Never underestimate the imagination and ingenuity of a man with lots of tools and time on his hands.

Neither of the videos play for me. I have seen a home built blower that looks to use something like a Bob Cat chassis with a auger made from a truck axel and powered by a 454 Chevy engine. It's got massive power and throws snow like a banshee.
I'm assuming the first one is probably something like a 215ci aluminum Olds engine. Even that would be hard IMO on a 2 wheel tractor unit but who knows?
