    Snow removal, Upstate NY style.



    well this is what upstate NY folks think of for snow removal...

    only kidding...

    Thanks to Grizz (Jim Capozzi), I now have this at chez bulken to help with the snew removal.





    8 hp electric start and it even 'runs' itself. My teenage son Adam has claimed it as his own, and unless I need to run it to get out of the driveway in the morning, so far at least, he has claimed it as his own.

    It looks like you have been needing that this winter. Stay warm.

    That is one serious snow clearing machine!

    Dispite having the reputation of snow capital of the US, Buffalo actually gets less snow fall than Ned's part of the state. In Buffalo we almost never have to worry about shoveling our roofs. In the Syracuse area, that tends to be more common.
    We create with our hands in wood what our mind sees in thought.

    Actually I've only had to shovel the roof once in the past 8 years.

    that industrial snowblower was up in Oswego, where last winter they had 140" fall in less than a week in one stretch.

    Children....those are merely toys...one step above a shovel. This 3000 hp machine, designed to make a path 10'-6" wide, 14' high is a snow moving machine for the railroad. It even has a smaller arm mounted 4 by 6 snowblower to move around switches and stuff.

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    That one was on me... I just left it on 'downwind'...


    Travis, that's one cool machine, but I think I'd really love that bobcat... since it can do so many more things too...
