    Today a guy showed up at work to move some snow piles back with a Volvo front end loader. Only this loader had a quick attach/detach hydraulic drive snow blower mounted in place of the bucket. He would start out by lifting the blower and blow the top 3-4 feet of snow off of the pile and then lower it and finish the piles off. It was a treat to watch, I only wish that I had my camera. Does anyone have some pictures of loader mounted snow blowers they can post?
