    My neighbours complain about my truck when I leave at 2am.

    How close together are these houses? Where in Toronto are you or are you outside Toronto?

    They had some in Newmarket. Did you phone there? You could do those in 3 hours no problem.

    You can do them in 3hrs. or less. Make sure you have spare parts for that blower as you will beat the hell out of that thing! ( Paddles, scraper bar, and belts )
