The Snow Dragon is a large mobile machine that can melt snow at a rate of between 450 cubic yards and 600 cubic yards per hour, writes John Myers. It uses less fuel than would the number of trucks needed to haul the snow away, making it more eco-friendly. In addition, it cleans the snow before discharging it as water into a sewer manhole, keeping "muck" out of storm-drain systems.
