Patent Number: 6,305,105

Title: Snow removal apparatus

Abstract: An apparatus for disposing of snow that is deposited on a surface. The apparatus includes a removal mechanism that removes the snow from the surface and guides the snow into the apparatus. A first chamber is connected to the removal mechanism. The first chamber has a first aperture that permits fluid to be injected into the snow to aid in melting the snow. A second chamber is connected to the first chamber. The second chamber has an agitating device that moves the snow and separates the snow into a slurry to further melt the snow. A third chamber is connected to the second chamber and is configured to store the melted snow. A disposal mechanism is provided that removes the excess snow from the third chamber. Snow is removed from the surface by the removal mechanism and is melted as it moves through the first chamber, the second chamber, and the third chamber.
