I would sure hate to be on the receiving end. Especially if it picked up a rock or chink of ice. :oops: Also, I wonder how much fuel per hour it uses and how big his tank is? i wonder about the strangest things at times.

Hi,
Really good snow removal. I posted it for a bit, but noticed it was already here. Hope you are all doing ok with the snow. :)

Sounded to me like the RPM's dropped a lot as soon as he got in the deep stuff. Would love to have it for a day. Grump

Probably does not have a governor, so just like in a car or truck you have to adjsut for the load manually.

I know it's cold out but how about engine cooling? If that's a radiator right at your knees, how hot or cold is the fan (if there is one?) blowing on you? Or is it a run for a short while and then let it cool for a long while?

I have watched ti several times, and it appears that the engine is mounted with the output shaft (clutch end) to the front, and the radiator next to the operator, but watching the movement of loose snow around it as much as possible, the air appears to be moving from the radiator over then engine, not toward the operator. My reasons for thinking that is when the airborne snow would come towards the unit it would immediately blow away rather than coming back toward the operator.
