how much snow do you get and how big are the storms? lots of deals on used iron solutions
On average, 6 inches .. a big snow fall around here is 8 inches. According to yearly averages, my area gets an average of 35 inches of snow fall a year. Although, it can vary greatly (i.e. 2010 where it was snow on top of snow well over a foot). Those storms are rare though. Last year, we had no snow.
Is the driveway open on the sides, or are there bushes, trees or a fence? 6 feet wide is pretty narrow, If you have a couple of storms close together, plowing may get things tight fast due to berms.
A blower on your little Deere may be the way to go if you have obstacles to the sides, as I would have a hard time getting my wife on board with a $15,000 Deere for just our driveway, no matter how long it was...
First snow is here .. about 3 inches and tons of rain/slush on top here at my house in northern Baltimore. I ended up buying a John Deere 1026 with a few attachments to use around the property and in the vineyard. I went with a read blade so I could use it in the summer pulling soil in the vineyard, etc.
I did all 730 feet in about 15 minutes with the setup .. two passes and I was done.
