    I bought a 4wd John Deere 1420 front mount with a snow blower and cab with heater. I was wondering if any other contractors have had the good luck i had with these on town homes as we did this past year? We do a 28 unit complex that took 6 hours with 10 Men before we bought this unit and after we purchased this unit the same place takes 2 to 2 1/2 hours with only 3 men.

    What's the question?

    71 views is not a lot. GV is probably 60 of them

    If other contactors used them and how they worked for them?

    My church uses one for the sidewalks and also clears the handicap spots with it. They only have a sweeper on the front so I can't say much of the blower. Sorry. We had a good 4 inches on the walks along with a slushy mix in the handicap spots. Needless to say it did EXCELLENT!
