    I have had a few customers ask about clearing the sidewalks and walkways also when we come and plow the drive. We have a couple of large blowers, but with the salt spreader on we need a small unit that can be lifted off the truck (2 people) , what is a good reliable small unit (under 100#) that would do the job.
    Thank You.

    I have had excellent luck with the small TORO's that used the rubber scraper/paddles. we have used the comm. for years, keep up with the maint. and they should work perfectly.

    why not use ramps and unload a larger one from the bed of a pickup?

    I sorta fit 2 32" huge commercial simplicities in my long bed ford... tailgate stays down, even with a high rise cap on the back, they fit in there :)

    If what you're saying is that you want something you can lift over the side of the bed then I wish you luck. I have a 5HP that my mother uses and it would be a bit much to get it over the side and on the ground just because it is too bulky.

    I wish you luck though, if anyone can help you they will definately be found here.

    WE use toro powerlites they can be lifted with one arm, but throw snow very fair.
