Smile Cool machines we wish we could get!

We've got some realy great machines here in the U.S. and Canada, but there's no denying that other countries outside North America get a lot of snow, and have some machines for handling it that we here just plain drool over and wish we could get.

So, knowing that once you get on something like Youtube, you just can't stop, or for those auction and sale site finds from elsewhere, as a break from moving snow and fixing stuff, post 'em up here for our viewing pleasure.

Here's a couple from Japan where they obviously get a lot of snow and have some really cool machines for handling it.



I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Those are sure some neat machines but I'm very happy I don't have to deal with all that snow. Thanks for the vids.

Wow the height of that bucket in that first video was very impressive. Just eating it up.

Wonder what that little colorful bag contains hanging from the back of the machine in front of the operator....

The bag probably contains snacks and some type of beverage. I'm thinking some Bonito flakes and to drink, Suntory Bikkle or Skal Premium Mango soda.

Would love to have the yanmar. Hope I never have enough snow here to warrant having one.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

+1 on the bag containing the guy's lunch / snacks / etc.

I really liked the headlight aimed where the chute is throwing so he can see what he is burying.

Toro 3650 (primary)
Toro 2450 (recent purchase)
Toro PowerLite (3hp)
Craftsman 3/20 (also recent, will likely flip)
Toro 1800 electric (gone)
Shovels (and aspirin)

Cost of those Blowers would be like buying a car, and where does one keep it? I am guessing it would need at least 1 ft. or more to blow.

Nice thread.

Value added info poast: first vid, 44hp Fujii diesel, second, Yanmar 15hp diesel.

They'll happily deal with even a few inches, which can be erased Very Quickly.

Look Ma, no hands:


And the incredible Yanmar 4440, pictured in my intro thread:


Turbo'd:



Ooo-haa.

Cool operators panel on that Yanmar 4440. I guess I could figure it out, but I'm kinda use to the rabbit and turtle symbols we use over here in North America.
I usually set it to rabbit for the deep stuff.
