Stuff that Weighs More than Me: Zaaaammmmboniiiii!

Zamboni Ice Resurfacer 552

Stats:

Length (Snow Tank Up): 5.03 m (198 in.)
Height (Snow Tank Up): 3.91 m (154 in.)
Overall Width: 2.13 m (84 in.)
Weight (Empty): 4423 kg (9750 lb.)
Weight (Full of Water): 5148 kg (11350 lb.)

An interesting note. At the Vancouver Olympics, when they tried to go with a resurfacer that is smaller and lighter than this Zamboni, not one, but TWO had a breakdown on the same day.

Conclusions:
1. When you want the job done right, don’t pick a lightweight.
2. Empty or full, a Zamboni weighs more than me.
