Prototype:

The modern diesel-powered snow throwers were built by the company Beilhack in Bavaria, which today operates under the name Aebi-Schmidt-Holding. The martial-sounding name „Beilhack“ has a long tradition in snow plowing business and somehow fits in with the machines with their pre-cut- ting propellers and sharp rebar sheets. The clearing capacity is about 13,000 tons of snow per hour. The advantage of the Beilhack snow throwers lies in their easy handling. So no additional trac-
tion vehicle is needed for the operation. An equally great advantage is that the snow thrower can change direction on its own since the complete body can be rotated 180 degrees. Well over a dozen snow-goers in this performance class have been discontinued since the product launch in the 1980‘s.
