    We are a smaller company in Omaha Nebraska. We do a few commercials, residential streets, and a couple neighborhood associations. Is there any piece of equipment out there other than a bobcat w/snow blower attachment($20k) that can cut down on time spent on these associations...they are all 40-60 driveways each, very labor intensive when just using 2 stages and shovels. Was looking for a way to cut down on laborers needed. Don't know if there is something out there that others are using...

    Thanks for your help.

    Toolcat. or another option is a small tractor with a reversible box blade on the loader in front and snow blower on back.

    Im not trying to be condending here BUT.
    There are mind numbing options out there from 21" single stage blowers to large loaders with adjustable width blades and everything in between. What works best in your situation is up to you. We don't know your budget, annual snowfall, client base, etc. As a professional operating a business it is your job to know the tools out there that will best suit your situation to best service your clients. Spend some time researching what's out there, use the search feature on here, educate yourself, you and your clients will be the better for it.

    Doesn't sound like they want heavy equieny or plows?

    Snowblower mounted on a p/u maybe?

    FYI. Toolcat run a reversible box blade on the front. I was planning on this and was pissed when I found out the hard way. It doesn't pivot enough

    Utility tractor with front mount blower. Or look at a wacker wl 30. Small wheel loader with small foot print, front mount blower, bucket, broom ect. Or get a blade on the skid loader. Hydralics are a man best friend.
