    Saw a pic of a large snowblower mounted on a large grain combine. Was the width of the tires and about 7-8 ft tall with cross augers mounted about a foot apart and a large blower in the bottom middle. Looked like it could eat some really deep drifts.

    Iv'e seen the blower at Flint Bishop, definately different. It's on the front of a tug, hydraulic powered, he pulls a trailer with the power unit on it, big ass hyd hoses routed up to the blower.

    Guess my recent pair of re-powered blowers can't compete with those outfits! As soon as I'm done with breakfast have to get out there and give one of them some running time on the driveway! repower.png

    Dang it! Wondered why they made all that nasty noise when I put them in gear!

    Actually I took them like that to show both sides in the same picture. Used the on on the left this morning and that new Briggs sure runs smoother than the old flat head Tecumseh that was on that one when new.
