    Well, we received almost 7'' of snow today! I went out to film my last snowplow video for this year! But next winter, be prepared for the ULTIMATE SNOWBLOWER!

    Feel free to leave comments... and by the way, i can make some if you want one!

    Cheer!

    Thanks, i'm kind of old school as far as music goes! The snow was falling faster than i could plow it, and it was very heavy... like snowman or snowball fight snow! The snowblower will be a great challenge!

    If the servo keeps stripping could you push the rod farther out of the middle and move the servo back. Should reduce stress on it. may be add a servo saver too.. it might be to weak to move the blade though

    Do you guys have suggestions for the motor size/kv and ESC i should use for the blower? I thought of using the traxxas titan775(Stock SUMMIT motor). I know i will need a lot of torque to throw the snow... Will it be ok?

    That is what we are here for
    It looks awesome! How much snow can it plow before it gets to heavy?

    I don't know exactly how much snow it can push... I would say, as much as my truck can push... and my truck can push alot of weight! But i know, for sure, i can go in 7'' of snow without problem, and make my way through!

    Yesterday, i re-worked the location of the snow thrower chute! It looks much better, and it will be more balanced!
    i also decided to go with the Titan775. I will use a 9T rc dirtbike sprocket on the auger motor and 26
    T rc dirtbike sprocket on the auger shaft. I will link all this with rc dirtbike chain!Next step, putting the turning plate for the snow chute!
