Scrippers 2000 handle tow - Saftronics solft start drive, 10 HP, no haul rope or splice handle, includes handles and concrete anchors.  A frame for the top terminal was slightly damaged when removed, may need repairing.  $18,500.  Also available brand new Tube Pro tubes still in the box (about 60), $80 each.  CO, August 2014.  


Sabina Drives - We have 4x T6800 series Sabina 75 HP DC drives - 480 VAC 3 phase input.  300 VDC Field, 500 VDC armature output.  One was being used in one of our chairlifts up until 3 months ago (has a stuck field economizer relay) I've been told that 2 others should work but were only ever purchased to keep as spares. One of the 4 is a parts unit that is missing fans and mainboard.  We have several books (see pictures) with wiring diagrams, specs, etc.  There is also 2 extra mainboards included, one is a 6801 and one is an 801 series mainboard.  As well we have a bunch of extra contactors, capacitors, breakers FET's, relays, fuses and small parts etc that go along with, many are NOS never installed including 12 voltage level detector/tach/overspeed Sabina boards and 4 current unbalance/phase loss boards.  All told theres about a pallet worth of stuff we're selling, should fit fine in the bed of a small truck.  Can deliver if necessary, we'd prefer not to ship due to risk of damage but if necessary we can strap to a pallet and drop at our local depot for $100 + freight.  Asking $1200 OBO + Shipping out of all of it or trade for 200 HP 480VAC VFD.



  Fincor 100 HP DC drive -  6 SCR, Analog DC drive.  It powered a 100 HP motor, has a few modification that were made, but functioned when it was removed.  I don't have all the drawings for it, but they are still available from Emerson (who bought Fincor).  It has a breaker on the incoming power, but the operator on the front of the enclosure is missing (handle broke). July 2014, ND


mSnow ramp with a Twin Tow and an air bag - Located in Utah, this set up is in very good condition and the Twin Tow needs a minor repair.  It has been indoors since 2011 and wasn't a good fit for this company.  Now is the time to save money for a great new indoor or outdoor feature.  June 2014



AIRBAG, BagJump model is BANTAM EXT, size is roughly 30'x30'x12' in height, purchased new from Austria, Action Sports, in 2011.  It is in excellent shape.  Purchased new for $32,000 plus shipping.  NH, Asking $22,000.  May 15, 2014


Complete tubing hill operation - located in Homer, Alaska, William is packing it up and doing other things.  I have a O'connor lift complete it is set up for three phase power and is very complete in every aspect, I have 60 very good snow tubes and many extra inertubes to go along with this set up.
I have a P.B. 200 D that needs belting for tracks, great running gear, plus I have a P.B. 100 D and it runs great.  3-14


Terrain Park Features


Contact us if you would like to post needed equipment or would like to sell your equipment on our website. 

CHS Snowmakers is looking for investors to open and operate a tubing hill and small terrain park in the Denver Metro Area.  Several locations to pick from with several million people in the Metro Area.  Snowmaking temperatures from November to March, snowfall averages 50" and snowmaking snow will last several weeks in the Denver Area even when temperatures reach 70 F.  Contact us for further details. Update 9/07 - We found potential sites but have encountered other legal issues with those sites.  If we find a good location we will post it here.
