Skid loader Snow Blowers? Anyone?

    I have been thinking about getting a blower for my skid loader for a few years now.

    I was planning on using it on a few HOA's we plow for keeping the drifting at bay, and was thinking of using it to blow fresh snow piles back as well.

    I know the drifting problem would be solved with the blower, but the snow piles are what worry me.

    I was thinking of using the blwer a day or two after an event, hopefully before the snow gets to compacted.

    Does anyone use a skid loader blower for pile removal?

    We use a NH lx985 hi flo with an erskine 2400x to blow piles from the roof of our parking garage. It does ok but the wet and packed snow slows it down some. I think it will handle snow drifts without any trouble.

    I thought about having a second skid loader there to break up the pile before it I run it throught the blower.

    The City here does it like that when they blow load it out.

    I think you'll need hi-flow hydraulics to move the piles back. But low-flow would probably work for removing drifts.

    Why doesn't my PM work? If someone answers that question I'll answer the blower questions. <br>We (I) have three skiddy blowers and many years using them in all conditions.
