    Was this supposed to be an answer to another post on another thread? If so, let us know and we can delete this one after you move it. Let us know.

    If not, I've got a simular setup, only bigger. JD 20 HP diesel Yanmar with heated cab, 54" power angle blade, or 48" 2 stage blower with hydraulic motor to turn the chute. This setup is works great to clean up small areas, sidewalks and small driveways.

    4 minutes, with that equipment ??

    Don't think so.

    10 minutes "feels" closer.

    There's a lot of variables in that one. It depends on how much snow there is, and if it's wet & heavy or just powder.

    Just out of curiosity... why the 4-minute time frame?

    I can do it with my 9HP 26" Craftsman in 8-11 minutes depending on snow conditions. . . just trying to up production & wondering if anyone is running that kind of time with the equipment I mentioned earlier.

    I use this set up last year for 30 residantials, need an average of 4 hours to visit them once with few stair to shovel. This years i bought a 13 hp 45" MTD blower steerable.

    It can handle those 22 new costomers i added.
    i have two more 13/33 in backed up and i don't think i'll need them. i went throught 2 storms and 5 regular snow event whitout stress.

    I use a corolla 4wd to tow a 4X6.5 trailer.very cheap on gas and maintenance.
