Is that a steering wheel or implement lift. Either way I bet it took a real man to operate. Don

This is not a snow blower as you may think. 

This heavy duty machine is actually a Cat [Scott] BS removal tool.

Those of you that know Cat will understand why the machine has such a large capacity, and while you may think its overbuilt,  its barely adequate.  :poke:   :beer:

If that is like the one they had in the Transportation Museum in California in the early seventies, it's a two man operation, one guy stands on the platform and lifts and lowers, while another drives. The one they had required the tires be deflated while the wheel was lifted, slide on the spike band and inflate the tires. They also had clamps tha went around the band and wheel.

It is made to move snow and keep the roads clear

It's a little front heavy and takes a strong operator to steer

Not much for hydraulics like modern day stuff

But it was built to use and is made extra tough

Just needs a fuel truck twice a day to fill the tanks up I fear

Can't see much, go by "sound"!   Wonder how far it threw and what damage THAT bunch of snow could do to things, heh!

Is that a Beer keg on top front?  Maybe operator looked at that all day as an incentive to do good job and also the snow in area kept it cold until he could stop and have one at end of day. :smilewink:

Wonder how far it threw and what damage . . .

Can you imagine what that would do with a mail box?
