I know some of you guys have some property and have to move snow around. Here's an impressive, not-approved-by-the-local-authorities marketing video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnSNUDe ... e=youtu.be

:shock: :D

That flex and bounce is pretty amazing. Its stiffness is somewhat temperature dependent, but from the train track demonstration, it looks like that urethane is an excellent blade choice for summertime snowplowing.

True! I'll keep that in mind when I'm shopping for my new snowplow... :rofl:

Saw this on YouTube and thought it was impressive enough I should share it. Very impressive durability test of a snowblower. I don't think getting too close to the hedge would slow it down much.

:rofl: I want one of those.
A few years back, I was bucketing snow from a big pile on one of our street corners. I had a big bucket on our loader, and was just zoned in, going back and forth, when all the sudden a small car was sticking out of my bucket. In a moment of panic, I thought I had overlooked a parked car. Turned out, it was a typical "out of province ski bum abandoned beater" (we get a few of those every year), that was snowed over and then buried in the snow pile. :shock:
