Fantastic video, best I've seen of a plow in action moving the snow so easily. You certainly had the "right" type of snow.

Thanks! The plow works much better with a lump of lead inside it. My local Zimo dealer recons that the DCC decoder is increasing the power to the motor when it needs it.

Other than skiers, garden railway folk must be the only people wishing for snow.....:)
Nice video.

Very nice video! We also have much snow here in Sweden at least in this year. I have just bought a Bachmann 4-6-0 "Annie" Rio Grande Southern decorated loco from a member here a couple of weeks ago. I will also buy a big plow like yours to Anni.

I found that I had to use 2 Aristo SD45 to plow my snow and each engine was 17 pounds. Also had a brick and lead weight in the plow.
