New and improved Electric Snow Blower !!!!

Check this out, just stumbled on this video of a guy that converted his snow blower.



Don't want to give out the punch line on this one. Have a look and can discuss afterwards.

Cringe moment ...

I'm pretty sure that guy's dead by now. I actually watched that video a couple months ago. It has got to be one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. I showed it to some electrician buddies of mine. They were not too pleased with his setup. Personally, I love having the extension cord following you up and down the driveway. ✂️

I like the idea myself. Plenty of power just hate the cord. Maybe install an inverter on the machine. No cord. No ethanol problem

Water.. 240v.. multiple connections.. what could go wrong.
No larger than an area he had all he needs is a large snow shovel to push the snow out of the way.
The guy likes to tinker it looks like.. No harm there.. but no way would I get within 15 foot of that thing

I feel the same about corded electric lawn mowers... pretty dumb.

Lots of torque might be better geared higher.

He could have tossed a predator on that for way less than what he spent on wiring and boxes.
Notice he had electric vehicles as well.... probably uses an electric grill to Barbeque lol.. petroleum free household there.

"My spa is shot... Think I will pull that nasty gasoline engine off the snowblower and put the spa motor on it!! "

lol nasty gasoline engine with that 220 V cable around water and snow, not sure I would stand next to him.

Maybe he should run his electric mower in the middle of his pool ??? just for fun and excitement !!!
