Default 3D Printed Snow Blower

I'm trying to get my project kickstarted. It is a 1/10th scale 3d printed snow blower. It is powered by a standard 540 sized motor and uses standard RC servos to raise and lower the whole snow blower. Also a servo is used to turn the shoot that directs the snow. It can plow through 14 x 5 inches of powdered snow in one pass!

Top notch work! Always wanted to build one myself. You have quite the setup there. Hope you reach your goal.

I have re-launched the 3d Printed Snow Blower kickstarter! Being so much closer to winter this should make it now!

Nice Blizzard looks good with the blower on there! Does the design work well ? I've keeping up on another forum about this mod. Guy is currently designing his own "Blizzard" vehicle powered by two 540 motors..quite curious to see his working prototype when complete
