    HI All,

    I have a Bobcat 763 highflow and an erskine snow blower. My driveway is blacktop, 8 foot wide and 1200 feet long. I also have a small parking area and I have a driveway by the house that is decorative pavers and not blacktop.

    Last year I used a walk behind snowblower on the pavers because i was a afraid of damaging them with the Bobcat. For the rest, I used the dirt bucket. I tried the erskine blower a few times but I didn't like how the snow exiting the chute made it hard to see the edge of the blower . It just didn't have good visibility.

    For this year, I'm thinking I should buy a plow blade. I want something that isn't going to damage the blacktop and if possible would also work on the pavers without damaging them.

    What would you guys recommend for a brand/model of plow? Do you prefer the plows with the chain lifts and why?

    Thanks so much for the help!

    Just get a plastic edge for your blower.
    A plow with rubber or plastic edges works great on pavers too.
