    After this last storm with the wind we had, one of our paths was covered in deep snow. Not sure if the inverted could handle it, but it proved me wrong.http://youtu.be/7_vFeVadcKU

    That did a great job of moving the snow fast

    Throws snow good.

    Not sure I understand the concept of backing up until the tractor loses traction then lower blower and drive over the snow again. I know there must be a good reason I just need some education that's all.

    I am disappointed no one commented on the size of that bucket for that size loader.

    I should have grabbed a picture of the bucket a friend has on his 304K Deere. The proportions are about the same, bucket is 1/2 the size of the loader.

    At the farm we have a light material bucket for loading feed. a 2.5ish yard bucket on a skid steer looks equally ridiculous.

    It look like it blows the snow good but doesn't clean down to pavement or was that a gravel path

    The better picture would have been the one of you trying to use it ;)

    You are definitely right it was not the best tool for the job at hand. It would have been far simpler and quicker to have used a standard blower. I used the inverted only because it was nearby. I filmed it to show how much snow it can handle.

    Its understandable, everyone has been having a busy winter so far.

    It may he my mistake but I recently started researching to set up a tractor for next year. Isn't there a inverted blower that switches so you can use it by simply backing up into the snow? If so how do they work?

    Bi directional snowblowers... Lots of you tube videos. They are pricey...

    If you have a good route for your machine diffinitly faster, this is the first winter for me with a snowblower on toolcat I like it. Now if I could figure out a business case for one of those ag tractors.
