While the majority of us think back to the past couple of weeks, and have nightmares about removing 20 inches of snow, some winter states and countries deal with the kind of snow that requires really major equipment to clear the roads and rails. We’ve collected some clips of extreme snow removal, which should make cleaning a couple of inches off your car seem like a walk in the park.
In the first video above, you’ll see a BNSF Train snow blower clear a mountain of snow off the tracks in Nebraska using a rotary blower . It is a long clip, but well worth the watch.
Turn your volume down before watching this next one! For some reason, this jet engine snow blower has been put to work to clear a road. The noise is absolutely deafening.
