    I know a hand specialist, orthopedic surgeon, every cotton harbest season, he sees at least three cases of people operating cotton strippers, get their hands caught in the stripping machinery trying to clear a jam. At best, it degloves the hand, and at worst, it takes the hand.

    If the Russians hacked Clinton's email then she is guilty of a felony for exposing classified information to a hostile government.

    Must be a Southern thing. I checked with DNR and Michigan doesn't even have a season on 'em.

    Guys, here in Pure Appalachia, just in this county where I grew up, every year some farmer would lose an leg or arm in the corn-binder later the corn-picker. Problem was, they were old machines, and driven from a PTO on the tractor. When it would jam, there would remain a serious amount of torque on the driveshaft and through the entire mechanism. Farmer Freddie would try to kick the obstruction out of the way and when the strain was released, he had not quite removed his foot from the operating area of the mechanism and the auger or the armss would grab his foot and draw him further in until the cutter did its work, after which the tension was off the shaft and mechanism. But the leg was still off the farmer.

    Modern machiery, which causes the tension to release on the PTO shaft when stopped has done a lot, but there are some who still don't take the time to go to "neutral " on the PTO as well as the drive.

    Come on over in a few weeks and try to SHOVEL the stuff. High moisture content makes it all the more special. Heck...I'll even pay your (indoor) range fees if you clear the three car drive and the sidewalk!

    To elucidate...there are snow "throwers" which are a single stage with an auger or paddle type drum with rubber fins driven by a 3 or 4 hp gasoline engine. This type scoops the white debris into the enclosure and blasts it out a chute which can be changed directionally.

    The snow "blower" is the same as above, but has an additional impeller at the chute openning to the nozzle, otherwise known as the finger chopper, and this apparatus provides greater impetus to blast the white debris farther along...sometimes onto the neighboring property or driveway. These machines are equipped with 5hp and above and many are self propelled on tracks instead of wheels. They can be equipped with shields to keep the frozen white debris from coating the operator in liberal fashion. Stepping up from this one, are the ones that are mounted on the front of tractors for those really looonnggg driveways.

    The blowers are preferred by those people who choose to live in the places even we call the Frozen White North where they can enjoy several feet at a sitting and yards of it over the entire season. Especially prized are those areas which are blessed with the wonderful phenomonen called "lake effect snow".
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    Czechbikr, Is this what you're talking about? To be honest however, I think this might be a little more then 5 horsepower…

    I see gun control as waiting in an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!

    ^ There is one of those on display at the RR museum in Breckenridge, CO. Awesome piece of machinery. But isn't that a bit of overkill for your driveway?
