    What are some quality snow blowers some of you guys use for commercial sidewalks, or do most of you use ATVs?

    I like the little Toro's. 2-cyc, Light and Beats shoveling.

    I just picked up a Toro CCR 3650 (it was a 2006 model off the showroom floor) and used it for the first time yesterday. I did a residential walkway and driveway. That thing can throw some snow, and so much quicker than trying to unload a 2 stage thrower and muscle it around. I don't know how much good this machine will do on larger storms, say 12"+ but it is a great little machine.

    If I would let the snow build that high. I would be screwed and fired.

    I use an Airens 522ec single stage 5 h.p. with a 22" cut, it is amazing how well it works.

    That looks dead nuts on like a Toro. The same unit we use. Is it a 2-cyc mix or gas only?
    The Toro is a 5hp Tecumseh
