Inverted snowblower Pictures and Info

Over the past few years more interest has been expressed with snow removal using large snowblowers. I thought I'd start a thread where we can post pictures and information related to this topic.
To get things started: I've added the Kubota M100X with a Normand inverted snowblower.

Thats a nice set up, if you dont mind me asking what does something like that run as well as how many drives are you able to do with that?

It's in the $60k range. As for the number of drives, this is dedicated to a specific condo project that has 130 drives.

We are putting on a Kubota L5030 cab machine (50hp). We have 140 drives to do in a development we are doing. Eventually we will have 225 to do. We are planning on doing streets with GMC Youkon and Cat 252B speed with snow tires and 10' plow.

Good to see guys posting and hopefully sharing experiences with this type of equipment.
While the inverted blowers seem to be popular in Canada, the US appears fairly new. I've owned both skid loader and the PXPL Pronovost, so hopefully we can all help each other with ideas.

Not inverted, but one of the best most efficient snowblowers out! Small pick of our TV145 in the shop.

I'll have pictures of our tractor tomorrow when we go and pick it up. Steve from Fargo Snow called me today and said that Normand had a mfg delay and our blower (n92-280) wouldnt be in until dec. 15. He told me Paul (Neige) had a few Shoule units available so he will send me one of those here soon.

Until then here's what we got:
erskine 2410x hiflo unit on our rc100:

protouch, is that Erskine brand new? If not, how do you like it? I've got a old erskine on hand and they work great! The main reason for going inverted over skid is to save time with larger snow falls. That was probably the one downfall of our skids and blowers, deep or really wet snow...

the blower was new last fall. It worked well for us in the hoa we service. the lighter snowfalls it was a bit quicker to just have the trucks drag out the short drives (~20') but anything 4" or more we used this. It worked really well and we have not had any issues with it. It helped us out by blowing back piles to give us more space at this location where there are few areas to stack snow that we cleared off the streets.

this year, we bought a boss 9' skid plow that we are putting boss wings on to drag out the lighter snowfalls and the blower will be on hand for heavier snow and pushing back piles at the same hoa.

the tractor+inv. blower will be servicing a route of about 130 standard residential drives within a 2 mile distance.

Very nice blowerman, you are going to love the years you get out of that setup. Looks like you do not have defrosting lines in you side and rear windows, I would have some installed the Kubota is notorius for fogging up during snow.
