    Looks like a side car on the bike making it look funny and hiding the blade mount.

    I don't know how well it works, but I recognize that look on his face - impending hypothermia.

    Note the proper spiked Micha-Goosian rear tire. Traction, eh?

    Then there are these monstrosities. I followed one of these TowPlows this morning for a few miles on I-80. Long and wide. It will plow a swath 25 feet wide at highway speeds. During it's quick conversion from a trailer to a plow (or visa-versa) it looks like it's jackknifing- technically it is but it really looks freaky the first time you see it happen. Impressive machines. Iowa DOT purchased 3 of them.

    How does that thing work?
    Do the wheels on the trailer plow turn together by remote truck driver control?
    Looks like a good idea as a second truck & driver are not needed.

    I had to Google the thing after I saw it. The wheels on the trailer turn 30 degrees. Pretty quickly too. When it does it looks like bad things are about to happen. Yes, it is remote control from a console that looks more like a cockpit.

    This looks like an excellent device for "street sweeping" when the revolution comes.
