    I had to blow back a couple of my piles today so I figured I'd take a couple quick videos. The piles in the first 2 videos were about 6 1/2 feet tall.

    Cool vid...that thing throws the snow pretty good. I cant imagine a "non" HF skid blower being very productive. Is that all you use the blower for (blowing back piles)? Or does it regularly run during storms?

    Looks like a great snow blower but I think things would go faster with a bucket on there.

    The blower is a lot and i mean a lot faster for moving piles. I can have that whole pile gone in about 5-10 mins with the blower. I also don't have to worry about finding places to dump. That pile is kind of deceiving in the video. It's a lot bigger than it looks. It's about 6 1/2 feet high, goes about 8 feet off the lot and is about 20 feet wide.

    Dayspring, I'm not trying to piss you off but as Cleansweep007 said, a big bucket would go faster. You head straight into the pile with the bucket 6-8" off the ground so you drive forward over snow and not grass and push back the pile 10-15'. You don't want wheel spin so you may have to take 1/2 bucket cuts. You're done in half the time. Only if there is no curb to go over, and I don't see one. If that snow was lighter and fresher then maybe you could blow it faster, but not when it's frozen and been sitting a while.
