    How far can a snowpusher push 2" of snow. It would be a Volvo L20B 54HP AWD Articulated Loader with a 10' pusher. I might have a 2 Acre lot but the snow has to go in the back, its about a 400' push. Yes I know wet snow and dry snow are completely different animals, just looking for basic info here.

    400 foot might be a bit much, but go for it. If its flat you should be okay as long as you dont take full bits besides the first one. How much does that loader wiegh?

    I think its just under 10k lbs, the pushing is downhill. The spec is one price for the season, so saving time is key to making money.

    Any way to angle the pusher so you just make a hug pile and then use the loader to move it?

    You seem tobe concerned that it may nto be able to push a snowbank all the way to the end of the lot so I figured you could just make a big pile in a central location and then move it with the loader instead of pushing.
