A rotary snow plow is a piece of railroad snow fighting equipment. It is characterized by the large circular set of blades on its front end that rotate as a unit to cut through the snow on the track ahead of it. The precursor to the rotary snowplow was the wedge snowplow.

They probably had this running overtime this year. We had an awesome amount of rain.

1:37 "This machine is so capable of carving a path through the white stuff that the railroads don't bother using it for ordinary snowfalls." What?! Doesn't that make it very incapable?

1:45 "This beast only sees service roughly once a decade." How do you justify the cost of buying, and maintaining this machine when it barely gets used? I don't get it.
One thing he got wrong, it is not a slug, but a snail. The UP (sliver one) was built by the UP in 1958, and was built from the "rail up" and was a "kit bash" of sorts. On the old SP (black ones" used to be steam powered, and now receive power from the "snail" which is a locomotive with an engine, but no traction motors. They then have traction motors turning a worm gear, that turns the blade. The one thing they use to keep the traction motors cool -- snow -- they take buckets of snow and pack them too cool them down.

1937? I would like to see one of these pushed by Steam Locomotives then. That would be interesting to see.

This is NOT a rotary. Instead, it's a man eating monster! This is a great video and thanks for sharing it!!!
I'm sure I've had a nightmare or two about this monster chasing me at a snail's pace! lol

Hey Discovery!!! Your opening still is a photo I took in February 1993 - I see that it's been cropped to not show my name nor was I asked permission to use it. Please take it off!

всем привет! как дела?
It's so effective they only us it once a decade. What kind of fucked up logic is that? It's either too slow, too expensive to run, or something, but not too effective to be used...

Another life saving machine that cannot be moved by wind, solar, or electric power!
You activists need to realize that our world has to be tamed (not conquered)by fossil fuels. Yes we can use those lightweight other forms of powers when called for but they cannot get the job done right at a quick pace like oil, coal, and diesel can.
