The only thing worse than "End Of Driveway", is "No End Of Driveway".

I think the main reason that there is little need for such elaborate measures nowadays is the power of today's engines and the sheer quantity of snow removal fleets. It's a lot easier to power through a foot or two of snow than it is to let it pile up because there is limited availability of machines and lack of speed for the ones that were available.

Agreed, you'll note in the first video you posted, that there was a measure of justifying the expense of these machines to the taxpayers.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
