V8 Engine Snowblower

at 12:03 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Insane Equipment, What Were They Thinking

 

When building something is there any reason to go half way? We don’t think so and that must have been the thought when the V8 Snowblower was being created! Actually the machine was built when the creator had a spare V8 engine with no immediate use. There are lots of very well though of features such as the handlebars that have engine coolant running through them to keep the operators hands warm, the radiator that blows warm air onto the legs of the operator and the pipes that take the exhaust above the operators head. It may look crazy but in some ways it is quite practical. :)

"Perhaps as a point of interest, some folks have asked ‘why?’… We like to think of this unit as the answer to the question no one else asked! If you live in a northern climate that receives copious amounts of snow, you just may be a little more sympathetic to the justification of this project. Like the old adage states, "Necessity is the mother of all invention." Do you own a snow blower? if you do, let me ask you this. Ever have it freeze up? Won’t start even with the electric starter cranking for so long it begins to act like an external glow plug? If, you were lucky enough to get the one lung motor to fire, did the drive belts slip and burn? Ever wish that mass produced machine had a little more strength to push and blow the snow a little farther?(Say nothing about choking on rising exhaust fumes) Did you ever have cold hands and legs while holding this thing for the time it takes to complete your task? We did too. Fortunately we can answer a full hearted ‘No’ to the last 5 questions… "
