    well i think i am going to bite the bullet and buy a snowman rear plow SC7 with the 45 degree wings. Brand new to my doorstep $3464. I plan on helping a bobcat with a 8 ft push/pull protech to do 130 driveways. Assuming the pull plow and cat were pulling the drives out and another cat and plow cleaning up the streets after them, How long do you think 130 drives can be done in. Im just curious and thought I would bounce it off yall. Its going on my ram 2500 w/810.

    Two year ago we used a ranger with a 720 to pull out 121 townhome (small) drives at a complex and this year we use a sub who has a Blazer with a 7 foot Meyer. Both are about the same timing and having the small truck really helped with these types of driveways. We can pull them in under 3 hours with ease. I think it was even faster, but 3 hours at the max.

    The shovelers can take care of all of the units in about the same time (3 people). The roadways take an hour.

    I don't know about rear blades, but I don't know how they can be that much faster on driveways that you would never back into anyway.

    These driveways were just a bit bigger then one car btw.

    Hope that is somewhat relevant.

    Good idea MnM for your area in hazlet, with not many looped drivways! The only reason i would not do it because we have no snow, wait until next year!:waving:

    Im getting it to do ,as said before, 130 driveways in a HOA I do. they are double drives maybe 25 x 25. I want to be able to finish these drives faster than it has taken us in the past. I dont care if it snows or not (ACTUALLY I REALLY DO) I want to be able to service these people better than before, not like i havent been doing a good job, they went through 4 companies before me and this is my 3 year. sorry im rambling just mad cause its raining
