You guys are funny. Some folks don't want to be out in the elements. I'm not one of them. I can see a lot of applications for either one of these. You're away from home and wifey doesn't do the snow removal. You can operate the equipment from a laptop while at your desk, on the bus/train. Same situation for those aging family members.

How about that huge storm in buffalo, 3 to 4 inches an hour. Send that baby out every couple of hours to stay ahead of the game.

I don't think there was enough snow on the ground for the blower.

You're probably correct. Just saw it tossing it a few feet and made my judgment w/o really looking. It would be pretty nice. The plow... Nah
You're correct. I don't like blowing snow. But that remote control blower is gonna cost... How much? Several grand? My driveway is 30' long and one car wide. Ain't buying it. Now if I was really rich and had a'big ol' driveway I'd probably have a big ol' 4wd tractor w/heated cab and a humongus front end loader. Get er done.

Ha. I'm envisioning a Roomba snow blower. It's out at 5 am and I'm waking to a clear driveway.

The Robot snow-blower does a better job than my son who is a high-school senior this year. I bet it would cost as much as an automobile meaning many thousands of dollars since it would have to have some sort of binocular camera system on it as well as a sophisticated obstacle avoidance system and possibly GPS to guide it in the area where your driveway actually is. You would not want it to grind up and toss the neighbors kid or cat or dog or venture out into the street to get hit by a Snow Plow.
