    My airport snowblower is similar to that 8600. Accept mine has paddle assist. Blows snow well.

    Thanks. Trying to load pictures. Think I can get it here in Alaska for 5,000 if I pick up a New Holland tv140.

    They have been around a long time. Will blow most anything if you have hp to run it. If you have traction, you can blow frozen piles without breaking them up first. Probably want at least 150 hp minimum on it. Very durable unit. Originally built in S Dakota.

    Interesting they take more hp than the average blower. Tv140 is 140 hp and 100 at pt. Appreciate the info. Thanks.

    Your TV140 is a hydrostat correct? That helps a bunch, but those twin fans capacity will take hp.

    Yes, the tv140 is hydrostat. Not mine yet. Can't seem to drum up much info on the tractor.
