Beech just put out they're really upping their pumping capacity this year.

Faster refill rates should mean more firepower overnight, fewer slowdowns to refill the pond during prolonged cold (fingers crossed!) and generally more snow faster.

Just their new fanguns alone can move almost 2,000 gallons per minute at startup.

Always wondered why on the large fan guns only a percentage of nozzles would be working(even in optimal conditions)I guess moving water was their weak link. Should be interesting this year.
