           The traction motor, snow blower motor, and most other of the GE
   accessory motors, when turned off coast slowwly to a stop.  In these 
   the armature connections are left floating when turned off.  This is a 
   of (hopefully) low friction braking.  I am very careful when snowblowing
   because the blower takes forever to stop and I worry about kids and 

Could one modify the snowblower motor to have braking when turned off?
That would make it a lot safer.
