Slick as You-Know-What Paul... but Oh my neck would hurt so bad the next morning!!! :rolleyes: Not that it doesn't anyway! ;)

Let's see... doing my math here... at my average per push rate and number of clients and pushes per year in my town divided into the cost of the street-registerable cab tractor and this blower... and adjusting for fuel, taxes, fees, registration, insurance, maintenance, neck pain meds and, of course, my net hourly take-home pay rate of $1.57 per hour... I end up breaking even in the year 2075. :eek:

Oh well... maybe in some other lifetime!!! :mrgreen:

Doug you need a machine like the one shown. From what I can see the seat turns around like on a TLB. That way you can take neck problems out of the equation. :mrgreen:

Actually I just looked at the picture again. Not only does the seat spin around 180 but it looks like the steering wheel and controls do to. That is sweet.

Nope I looked real close at the picture and just got finished looking at the video. It looks like a NH TV140. Gotta look it up. Also that machine is articulated. :mrgreen:

Actually take a good look at that website. Those guys make more that just that snow blower.

That have an inverted one that you drive foward instead of backing up to move the snow. It looks pretty cool too.
