    We have a few large apartments and I want to get them done faster. Would it work to wind row all the snow to the middle. Then take our skid with a blower and and blow the snow in a dump truck and dump it on site. Would this work and would it save me time

    a lot of cities do this but they have big FEL mounted snow blowers that fill tri-xales and grain dumps. it is just as fast as loading it but that is with the huge equipment. if you have a skid steer, why not put a large light materials bucket and just load the truck that way? plus i think you need a hi-flow skid to run the blowers with the tall shoots

    Sounds like a lot of gas. Not a good idea.

    How about: angle plow to the sides and then square up and make your piles disappear with the blower. I use one of ours to do that if needed, you can turn a big pile into something small rather quickly if done right after you plow. Don't wait because when it's solid ice, not going to happen.
    Otherwise the previous posts are correct, it would take to much time.
