Now that would be handy if you lived in areas of interior BC where getting a foot of snow a day is common. Or you just may want to put that in your stable, that would really chew through 4' of snow!

I was just researching double auger blowers, there were a few early on and still a few made today, mt trackless for example. The second auger is not much more affective than just a hood extension, as long as you have the horsepower to keep the main auger chewing the snow. When you get to the really wide stuff that's when they help to shuttle deeper drifts to the output. Still an awesome looking machine, almost as cool as turbine throwers seen on unimogs!

Yeah, that dual auger will eat it up!

Question.....Is there a difference between a snow blower and a snow thrower, and I have hear folks call them snow chucker's?

To me they are all the same machine.....
A snow blower is two stage and has an impeller that blows the snow as it is fed with the auger.A thrower is single stage and the auger picks up the snow and throws it.

There are also a few paddle wheel type machines they call throwers but they simply toss snow no auger or impeller just an impeller looking wheel that has a housing around it and exits a shuts. Cool looking machines, will throw the whatever in one piece lol!

Yes I have seen those machines, or that same design anyway. Don't remember the brand right off but was at a county fair in NW Iowa. One mean looking machine. More for loading silage than snow but would work for both. Along the same line they made a manure spreader that had the beater in a vertical position. Box was the size of grain straight truck. Takes some big HP to run them.
