THIS is What We Need....

It's the Oshkosh Truck H-Series snow-thrower. This is a shot of one at the Oshkosh airport, a few thousand feet from where the behemoths are made. It can travel at speeds up to 35 miles an hour while throwing snow (more than a ton a second) 200 feet.

Leave to the 'sconnies to make something like this.

(Hat tip to Dad29 for the story idea.)


  1. Monster rotary plows rock! Which reminds me ... when you're done with it, winter-addled NYC would like to borrow it. We could loft the snow over the buried cars lining the street, and pelt houses and pedestrians with the discarded beverage containers and the occasional brickbat the thing picks up.

  2. Borrow it, hell.

    They'll pay $1K/hour plus expenses.
