CPR Jet Truck Melts Snow off Plow 400840
This machine of the Canadian Pacific Railway has an airplane jet engine
mounted on a flat-bed truck. It is primarily used to thaw frozen switches
in the winter time. Here it is at Lake Louise thawing snow left on
snowplow 400840 after the latter had been used to punch through avalanches
in the Kicking Horse Pass near Partridge and Cathedral sidings the night
before. The snow could not be left to melt on its own on the plow because
it was suffering from an air leak affecting its pneumatic mechanism moving
the wings in and out. Melted snow which refroze in the mechanism could
disable it. Normally the procedure shown here is not performed.
The hot Exhaust from the jet engine
can be steered to a degree by the movable air funnel placed behind it. The
engine produces 140 decibels of noise. If one is standing beside it one
must wear double ear protection: plugs and ear muffs. If one only has ear
plugs one can only come to within 100 feet of it as the noise level is
already at 120 decibels at that point. The crewman told me that this is
the only operating unit on the CPR. A second unit exists in Calgary, but
is not operational at this time.

2/10/2013 (Day After Blizzard Nemo)
This was a tricky chase! I didn't know where to start... I heard this plow
extra was on its way to Brunswick on the scanner. When we got to Brunswick,
they said on the scanner they were going back west. That worried me a bit
because when I heard that, we were still on the Interstate and didn't know
if we'd make it in time. We made it to Grant Road with a few minutes to
spare. After Grant Road, it got a bit harder becasue I am not too familiar
with the Brunswick/Freeport area. The traffic was slow through there which
made it harder to keep up, too. We caught up to it again at Mill Road and
had seconds to spare! After that, we went to Intervale Road where we met
the Empty Oil Train.
*Note: Mill Road was shaky becasue we made it as soon as the crossing
At Intervale Road, the Empty Oil Train took the mainline and passed the
snow plow that was on the siding. The plow came through after the oil train
The second location is Mill Road in North Yarmouth, ME and the third is
Intervale Road in New Gloucester, ME.
*Thank you to my dad for driving me around and helping take some video
while I took photos. He took the video at Mill Road and Intervale Road
(Locations at 0:50 & 1:20 in the video) while I took pictures
Four truck to get one car out of snow. read description
This video isn't all that great , except for the end were almost an
accident happens. For the most part this video shows how not to pull out a
car out of muddy snow. Basically my friend Ed asked me if my brother, with
his land rover and I could pull him out of the snow. We never got a chance
to use his land rover because every time when we would get ready to use it
some truck would stop by and offer his help. After a few tries the trucks
would notice there getting stuck also and take off. The funny thing was
that another truck would show up immediately after wanting to help us out.
In the end the 4th truck got us out thanks to the 3rd trucks hard work. The
best part was that we never got the land rover dirty except when we got
ATV Plowing 3 Feet of Snow: Kawasaki Prairie 400
I noticed there are a lot of videos of people plowing 2 inches of snow...
So I just had to contribute. Fast forward to 4:10 if you're impatient.

It had a hard time pushing the snow straight but when I got to a point
where I could tilt the plow, get up some speed, and push the snow to the
side it had no trouble. With this amount of snow over a large area I first
clear out some space on one side so I can move around and then I make two
complete sweeps over the area. In the first sweep my rows go from the
outside edge into the middle row with the plow tilted to the outside
(counter-intuitive but it works). The second sweep goes the expected
direction, from the middle row to the outer edges with the plow still
tilted outward. Using this method you don't have to stop or reverse once
you get in the groove. Unfortunately the camera battery ran out before I
could get that far, but you get the idea.
