It turns out I was not the only one to have the electric snow thrower idea... not even close. I just had the idea about 30 years after General Electric. The electric snow thrower I built, The 600-lb. Cordless Electric Snow Shovel, is now disassembled. This is because, by chance in the summer of 1998, I wound up with another electric tractor, a GE ElecTrak E-15. (Thanks Miriam Aubrey and Dick Slade!) And Rob Vasichek sold me a snow-thrower attachment for short money (thanks, Rob!). The snow thrower is about 44" wide.
