WOW - Hopefully there are no Acorns in the way..

I couldnt believe how it spooled up like a turbine!

What are you using for the blade? I have to repair one for a friend and I was planning on making a durable aluminim one but these seem nice.

LOL Too funny.

This is the information I have posted on my website. http://www.rayman4449.dynip.com/Rotary_snow_plow.htm You can find it through the Locomotives link on my homepage.

The motors are from Ryobi 9.6v drills. The rest of the info is there as to exactly where I ordered the impellers and the part number. They are actually vacuum cleaner impellers and these are off a Eureka.

I built it before I had a lathe so I used bolts for the shafts which aren't perfectly straight.

It is a bit wide but that was actually the intent was to be able to clear a wider path. Fortunately I don't have any tunnels or cuts.

Unfortunately, the two times I've really tested it I either 1) didn't have enough motive power to push it or 2) was fighting a layer of ice on the layout which is what kept stalling the consist in the second series of videos on the main layout.

I think the best application in deeper snow would be to use a single rotary first then follow up with the dual to finish the job. Not sure if I will build a single rotary or not. I really like the ones I've seen in action.

Let me know if you need more information.

That's great Will! Do you have an MTH eninge to start messing around with it?

Believe it or not they really do keep you cool in the summer. I still prefer it to your summertime portable fan, but to each his own.





Of course we all know yours is battery powered.

I was disappointed I couldn't make it to the Battery Steam-up this year too, I hear they rented a big balloon to help guide folks to the house when they got close.
