Guy Builds Flamethrower to Remove Snow: Overkill Much?

Shoveling snow is really bad for your back. It’s also the cause of heart attacks for many people every year. Screw that. You wanna remove snow? You need fire. A guy from Grassy, Missouri recently built himself a flamethrower for quick snow removal. Hmmm. I wonder why they don’t sell this at Home Depot.

This baby will clean up the snow super fast and I’m sure it keeps him toasty warm. This builder says that ever since he was a kid he always wanted a flamethrower, and now that he’s older he made one out of spare parts, making his dream come true. It runs off a diesel and oil mix and is powered by CO2. He’s a simple man who hates snow and loves fire. This flamethrower burns five gallons of diesel in about ten minutes and has quick change tips to fan the spray or stream it for long distances of up to fifty feet.

Pretty sweet. Now I want to see him create a Mad Max flamethrower snow plow so he can look like a comet barreling down the street. I love the smell of burning asphalt on a winter morning!
