1971 Walter Snow Fighter
Walter plow opening road in upstate NY after the St. Valentines Day Storm of 2007. When you see the snow come over the center of the "V", it's 6' deep at that point. The truck is a 1971 Walter with a Frink V and 14' wings. 300HP Cummins & Allison Automatic.
Walter Snow Fighter video and slides
NEW 2-9-2013: This Walters is safe from the scrap pile, for now. To my understanding, the transmission is broken. The owner has an interest in rebuilding it. Should it be sold, I have asked the courtesy of an early notice and will contact those of you who have expressed interest in this machine. Thanks!
This is believed to be a 1953 Walters Snow Fighter. A retired county snow plow, it still serves to keep the road and parking lot clear at the small, north Idaho Ski area, Bald Mountain, near Pierce.
Not big on driver comfort, but very low geared and all wheel drive with a locked dif, it still can push the snow.
Walter was the granddady company of the modern equipment maker FMC. The Snow Fighter has a following of dedicated collectors.
With the melody sung by the DD 453, who can blame them!

1963 Oshkosh M4819 plowing my road to my back field. The last part of the video I headed out across 2' + of virgin snow. Could have easily kept going.
