    Guy's have a condo building that wants parking spots cleaned. The problem is they are between two buildings so I can't back the truck up and push it in. Any ideas on what I could use? the blowers seem to be taking to long I actually heard someone say they used a backpack blower?

    Need some advice!

    could use a tractor with a blade if you have access to one, or a large size snowblower. How bout a garden tractor with a snowblower! wesport

    drive forward up to the curb, drop your blade and back up. then push the snow where you want it. A pic would deff make this easier.

    I find that a skidloader with a 100 inch snow bucket works the best.
