How much does a professional Zamboni cost?

As the sizes and options of the Zamboni machines vary greatly according to each ice arena's individual needs, so does the price. The Model 100 (a small tractor pulled unit) may be in the neighborhood of $10,000.00 or more and the full-sized machines can be up to or in the low six figures.

Also question is, how much does a Olympia Zamboni cost?

But there is a movement toward the battery-powered machines. The only drawback is the price. An electric-powered Olympia ice resurfacer, for example, costs about $160,000, compared to $90,000 for a propane or natural gas-fueled machine.

Beside above, do you need a special license to drive a Zamboni? You might be surprised to learn that operating a Zamboni requires no special license or certification, according to Ahearn, who also works as a welder and mechanic at the United Center. He said that most ice rinks that need a driver will likely show you everything you need to know.

Simply so, how much does a professional Zamboni driver make?

The average ice resurfacer driver makes $13 per hour or about $31,000 per year. Pay depends on what size arena you work at and the quality of ice you generate. If you love ice and don't mind getting cold at work you should consider a job as an ice resurfacer. It's cool to work with big machines and frozen water.

Can you drive a Zamboni on the street?

In the only previous Zamboni DWI case (to my knowledge), a New Jersey judge dismissed the charge against that defendant after ruling that a Zamboni is not a "motor vehicle." He based this on his findings that a Zamboni can't be used on streets or highways and can't carry passengers.
