    New blower on our L175. Blowing some drifts. Found out it DOES NOT work the best on the very wet stuff..... lol. But it works good for relocating the fluffy stuff!

    Is that a high flow blower or standard flow?

    Its a standard flow skid & blower. Quick-Attach/erskine brand. 6' blower. (74" out-out) Just got 8"-9" of heavy wet stuff. It then got cold and sucked some moisture from the snow. It was only blowing about 6' when it was wet and heavy. Had a bad feeling in my stomach from dropping $5k on this thing only to blow it a little bit. But once the snow dried up..... it is my new favorite winter attachment! I was clearing walks today that had 4-5' drifts, and drives too. I got quite a few calls from people seeing it in action, and picked up 1 full time account from seeing how well it left the drive looking afterwards.... I see more blowers in my future!

    How's your l-175 holding up? I'm looking at a 08 with 500 hrs

    Still working great. Starting to get a little surface rust from all the years of the plowing but it is still a great machine. If you found one for only $500 and its in decent shape and they're not asking an arm and a leg for it I would recommended it.
