    Buy this twin turbo v12 snowblower mated to a Unimog truck

    It's a Mercedes Unimog.. made into the most beastly snowblower you've probably ever seen.
    Sorry can't post pics, I don't know how to from ebay now that they don't let you save the pic or copy the location. Here's the ebay link. You have 9 days to decide...

    I'd bet it's not far off from the BIN.. Without all the extras this thing has these will usually go anywhere from the mid twenties for a crappy one to 40k+ from what I've seen.

    I'd worry about the engine for the blower.

    I was fondling some used XC skis the other day. I really should pull the trigger on some this year.

    That is awesome. Did you see the price though?! 250k Euros!

    Do you think the "turdo" part was a freudian slip foreshadowing failure?

    No need to buy these, I'll gladly pay taxes and let the great government of Oregon do the job. Need more tax for these things...I'll gladly pay more.

    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas
