    Looking for feedback on using a tractor with 3pt hitch rear blower to blow back snow piles from snow dump areas in apartments and townhouse complexes.
    Specifically thinking of using a 40-50hp tractor with cab.

    Thanks

    I have done that a couple times with my 47 HP Montana tractor. Plan on going through shear bolts - debris in the pile or really hard snowbanks are tough on the blower. I have a loader on the front so I would knock down the pile if it was too hard.

    Ya thought that might be a problem. Might have to blow the snow each snow fall after trucks plow lots.
