I’m Surprised A Minnesotan Didn’t Think of This

Yes! You too can have a glass-like ice skating surface in your backyard for $30,000: Vt. Man Creates the Backyard Zamboni.

EAST MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) – Damian Renzello has been searching for smooth ice for years. Now he has created the ultimate outdoor backyard dream machine for ice lovers – the backyard Zamboni.

Renzello, who invented the Porta-Rinx, a backyard portable ice skating rink kit, and the Bambini, a pull-behind ice resurfacing unit, now has the solution for sale.

He has mounted a snow blower on the front of a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle, added an ice scraper blade underneath and mounted a water tank connected to pipes and hoses that lays down a film of water to create a glass-like finish to outdoor ice.

Called the Bambini Revolution, the machine will sell for about $30,000 to outdoor ice skating enthusiasts.

And that’s not all!

And he notes the Bambini is an all-purpose machine. It can serve as a snowblower to clear a driveway, it can mow a lawn in summer and it can spread liquid fertilizer from its tank.

I can see Mr. Renzello in a late-night infomercial hawking his invention with some hyped-up fawning blonde: The Bambini Revolution! Not only is it a complete land maintenece machine, it also walks the dog, picks up the groceries, vacuums the carpet and washes the dishes! Now how much would you pay?
