Useless Fact #2

The current Zamboni configuration has it's roots in the 1968 Model HD resurfacer. That was the first machine to use a vertical screw auger to bring snow into the tank, allowing for the faster forward dumping tank.

Previous models used a chain drive system with the snow carried in small buckets and dumping them into the tank, which had to be shoveled out after resurfacing!
