Here in NY we have had less than good weather for snowmobiling. So I made a homemade snowgun. Im trying to get a small track together, the snow is falling as we speak! [:D] Here are some pics

I'll keep you updated, I'm trying not to run it for to long at a time because im on a well. But its very tempting to do some long overnight runs. As of now it puts down about 3 inches an hour over about a 15 by 30 foot area. Well see how it turns out.

well it looks like its off to a great start! would have been really cool to be able to have done a lil ground work first and you could have your own snowx track. lol got any close neighbors to bother? Thats got to be loud?

We did that a few years back the only down side to making your own snow is if you don't shoot it high and fine enough then it will be a big chuck of ice when your done. We bolted a twelve foot extension on the roof of the house and then shoot it in the yard. Hope yours works out. An old cat with steel ice cleats or some studs in your track will shread it up nicely. Looks good!

Thankfully I live in the country and dont have any houses close to me. It does make a nice hissing sound though. It is coming out nice, It is all semi wet snow with some poweder. Its all about having something to nuculize the water.[:D]

Well, the gun its self costs about 50 - 60 dollars to make. The most expensive parts of it are the preassure washer and the air compressor (I allready had these). I acually got the ideal from snowguns.com <real good forum on making snow. Go to that site, you will learn everything you need to know about it. Let me know if you want me to explain it here.
