Biggest Snowfall vs Train Snowblower (HD, 1080p)
On this particular mission, the snowblower's progress is hindered due to
the considerable height of the snow wall. The snowblower actually derailed
a couple of times on this strip, which meant a heavy crane had to be
brought in so that the train could be put back on tracks - a very difficult
and costful operation. Filmed on the Romanian railways, during winter '12.
100 Pumpkins vs Snowblower
http://ventrac.com/snow :: What happens when 100 pumpkins go through a
snowblower? We wanted to find out too. We took our Ventrac 4500 with a
KX523 snowblower and put it to the test. We launched chunks of pumpkins
over 40 feet.
We didn't have our snow blower in float mode the whole time, or we probably
would have gotten better pumpkin pickup off the ground. We ran a clean-up
pass in float mode and it cleaned the ground pretty well.

Note - Thank you for all the enthusiastic comments. For those of you
concerned about this being a waste of ‘food’, these were carving
pumpkins, and not food grade. That said, we at Ventrac are deeply
concerned about global food production and hunger related issues. Ventrac
makes significant annual contributions to organizations that are committed
to helping feed those in need, both in the USA and abroad.
