This afternoon I was sitting here at the computer, when I heard a sound that sounded like an airplane coming down the street. So, being nosy, I jumped to my feet to see what it was. Our Borough Department finally decided to breakout the old toy that they bought numerous years ago, but haven't had to use it much lately. I didn't think they even had it anymore, but low and behold, here it is. I ran back in the house to grab the camera and snap some pictures for you all to see.

After taking the pictures, I ran back in the house and told Kathy that I want one of them, as that would cut my snow removal time in half. I remember telling her that around 1:30, and seeing how I just came to about twenty minutes ago, I'm assuming she didn't like the idea!

We have one of those and it has not been used in probably 10 years! It gets put on the wheel loader when used. Manhole covers do a good job of tearing that snow blower up too.

I want to build one of those (just one auger) and put it on the three point of the Bolens, and switch to a plow for the front.   :thumbs:

Wow, I saw something just like that recently.  It was in a city and they were blowing it into the back of a dumptruck.  

 

It's too bad when you have to truck the snow away, but there's just no room.

 

Great photographs.  Thanks for them.

I don't ever want to see enough snow to warrant owning one of those,

Last time I saw them using that blower, they were filling triaxle dumps.  I guess it didn't take long to fill that dump. :D

From the looks of the pics, he might start grabbing people off the sidewalk for more weight. I think he's giving 'er all the down pressure he's got to offer......

You would almost think that the blower would have enough weight on its own. :smilewink:  :rolling:

Thanks Troy, appreciate the reporting.
Do you think a RF will hold one?

You're right Scott. The front wheels of the backhoe were off the ground the whole way down the street. He basically left the blower ride against the curb.

No problem Alan! With my Dad's car trailer hooked to the back of the tractor, and my truck parked on top, it should be more than enough weight to keep the rear end on the ground. I use one of the auction tractors that you got me last year!
