Nice replication! You’re brave for taking it on to start with, but your vision and persistence is really paying off! 

Haha ! Yeah its been one of the more challenging builds I've worked on.  I'm making parts for a friend too so double of everything.

Neat project and very nice work so far.

When I lived in the Sierras there were a bunch of snowplows and snow blowers around, the more common were just Ford, International etc dump trucks with plows, but there were some big Oshkosh plows that came out when it started snowing really hard. When the big plows couldn't keep up the snow blowers came out. That was a good indicator to me that it was time to stay home. 🙂

Thanks , I'd imagine the snow removal crews would be very busy working in the Sierra!  Thats typically what happens around here too, one area drifts really heavy, and out comes the blower..or the monster V blade Walter that lives nearby .

Haha staying home when the big trucks come out to play  ! I'm conflicted because I'd love to see it clearing roads , yet know the amount of work it demands ...guess we'll see

After many tries wrapping an auger,  a tech at work made a suggestion that seemed worth trying. I was using a punch size similar to drive shaft diameter.  He suggested going up a few sizes to allow blades to rotate more...I owe him a cold beer

Now to flip the blade pitch and make the other side and start the bottom auger . I ended up gluing them like a W or M depending way it spins, creating a drift buster ..really makes the machine look more rugged now just glue repeat 20201126_100656.thumb.jpg.58eec57738aa20a873a3da1917843c16.jpg
