    I didn't read your post correctly at first. I was thinking you were just doing the roads.

    or 5' bucket on bc and 7' plow on truck. That is if you go hourly and give a low bid to get the work.

    I will say s185 with blower attachment & snow bucket.
    Pickup with Blizzard 8611LP.
    I'm guessing the skid does all the drives and plow cleans up streets? 4Hrs?

    We got a whole family of snowmen on PS now...

    You using the push-pull blowers in Wi???

    We looked into one for one specific association... too spendy for one, but we would love to try this out someday. How do you like it? I know those foreigners to our north swear by them for drives.

    Ditto... and how does it do on those very light 1-2" snowfalls?

    PS. Snowman55... sorry, but your thread is kinda getting hijacked with this blower mention.

    With 138 units less than 6 hours total. We did 122 unit place last season wthout roads in 4 hours or under most times, that includes cleanup after town plowed roads with one skid (larger than is speced, but single speed).
