  • Snow removal equipment

    Well, it's that time of year, snow is here, so I thought it would be appropraite to post some of my snow removal equipment.
    The first 2 pictures are of a tractor made in Germany that is used as a sidewalk plow in winter and as a lawnmower in summer. Another future project will be to make a mower attachment for it.
    The next 2 pictures are of a sidewalk plow previously made in Quebec.
    It is the smallest of my models as the size was based on the tracks I purchased at the local hobby shop. Maybe I will make tracks from wood, then I can build a larger model.
    The next 2 photos are of a road grader used for plowing our roads.
    The wing moves up and down and swings out when down, as per the full scale one.
    It is kept in the up position by a small chain and hooks.
    The plow turns left and right and moves up and down.
    All 3 of these models are my own design, and all have detailed interiors and exterior.

    The next 3 are from a plan my wife bought from Wildwood Design.
    This front end loader has been modified to include an opening cover to show a detailed engine, all hydraulic lift cyliders have been made from aluminium tubing and most of the parts are bolted together for a more realistic look. as well the bucket is removeable, as per the full scale version.
    This gives me the option of making a plow or a snowblower attachment.
    I have several plans from Wildwood and they are excellent, very easy to understand, and all parts are shown.

    Thanks
    Nick

                            A gift to be cherished, and a reminder that life goes on despite a tragic loss. How lucky the little boy is to have such caring people in his life....

                            Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

                            Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...
