    I was out tonight tidying up some sidewalks. We had rain today followed by flurries so it put down a crusty layer of snow that needed to be cleaned up.

    That's awesome.
    Is your sweeper excessively heavy?

    when we get some real snow, i would like to see what that can do with 3 - 4 inches on the ground. and maybe even 6 - 8 inches. not that we like to have that much accumulate on sidewalks, just curious.

    Yeah, it's the heaviest attachment that I have. I can hook the plow and blower up by myself but not the the sweeper.

    I don't think I'd even attempt to sweep that much snow. I have a 66" plow that I like to use whenever we get more than a few inches.

    Just curious on how or if you could run the broom over the parking block/ bumpers,,,i have been thinking about getting broom for skid steer or my front mower.

    I've never tried it but I don't think the broom would enjoy it. There's not a lot of clearance to make it over a bumper without hitting the frame. Maybe it would be different with a skid steer broom but I can't say for sure.

    What make/model of front mount do you have?
