I found only 120 volts snowblowers on the market,
it's too weak for our Canadian winters.
Those snowblowers are toys!

I needed:
a snow blower that need almost no maintenance
a snow blower that doesn't smell gas in the garage.
a snow blower powerful enough for 15 inches of snow.
a snow blower that doesn't make any pollution.

So I made "The Green Storm" a 240V snowblower, a real snow eater!
