Here at JLS, we move alot of snow every winter season. BUT.... what we do seems a little mundane compared to this BIG BOY! Check out the videos below of the new rotary plow, named Unit 30, that is part of the $100-million renovation of the cog railway that travels from Manitou Springs to the summit of Pikes Peak.
The new snowblower has the capability of cutting through snow drifts up to 10-feet tall and 20-feet wide.
It was produced by Zaugg in Eggiwil, Switzerland. The blower's 47.2-inch diameter cutting reels can cut through 4,200 tons of snow per hour and has the ability to blow snow 50 to 100 feet off the line.
Landscape and snow removal companies see this as a giant toy that would be way-fun to drive. One can dream, yes?
WINTER IS COMING! Are you ready?
