Snowblower of the Gods
We have mixed feelings about snowblowing; one one hand, we love firing up a piece of heavy machinery and blasting snow into our neighbors yard, but on the other hand, we're rarely thrilled to wake up at 5am to deal with nine inches of snow just so we can get to work.
But if there ever was a snowblower that would get us fired up every time we started it, this is it. Recently featured over at Popular Science, this monster is equipped with a V-8 engine (stripped off a Chevy) that gives the snow throwing blades a speed of 6000 rpm. The fact that it looks like something Mad Max would use to clear his walk only adds to the effect.
Check out the article and all the rest of the details over at Popular Science.
