    Just curious what you guys may be using for your snow removal equipment.

    I run with 4 3/4 trucks with Hininker plows, 2 straights, & 2 V plows. Small commercial and some driveways.

    2 New Holland Boomer tractors with front mount snow blowers. They do all residential driveways and walks. 52 inch blowers.

    2 walk behind honda blowers. Used at churchs and some businesses with muplti level walk-up and steps.

    2 walk behind toro blowers. They are with the plow trucks - easy to throw into truck when needed to clean off sidewalks around the building - such as banks, small commercial accounts.

    I then sub out the big stuff to 2 different guys. One guy uses a cat loader with 12' pusher and skid, the other guy uses two john deere tractors with snow buckets.

    That is my operation - what is yours.

    1 3/4ton chevy 2500hd, 2 shovels, spreader, and 2toro sonwblowers go in the back of that and do about 25 or so driveways with that. and then I hired someone else with a 3/4ton ford who does my commercial lots, about 5. Takes about 6-8 hours to get all of them odne.
