Did you find a lot of slush build up on the towel? I built a smaller version and had to clear the towel almost every pass.

QuestionMan says:

"IF" you do a version two, you can build your own box/tube frame, bring in some heavier components that could handle the weight and before you know it, you'll have built a Zamboni 🙂 I hope you got some solid snapshots of that "buckin' bronc"! Make great photo for your workspace.

Make custom goal light bruh

Eric Schultz says:

This whole thing is awesome. Huge fan of the rink and the zamboni and all of the projects you do.

I saw the amount of land you had in a previous video. If it were me, I'd do a golf course on it.

Craig MacDaniel says:

How much of the tank do you use for a full resurface? Close to the whole tank?

Cyrious says:

Jeff Forbes says:

Brilliant! Do all the fans throw snowballs at you when you roll by?

Atlantic Film says:

Honestly, I was expecting an axle to break under the additional load, not the frame…

Michael Garcia says:

Nice Project! Way to bounce back and staying positive from that frame bending in half, I would have been bent out of shape myself from that.
