    I know this is everyones little secret, but i need some help. We will be using a 12' box and a 20' box on case machines this season for a mall project. How much area per hour can i expect to clear at a 3" snow fall. If a truck can do 60,000sq ft is it twice that or 4 times that? Anything would help:bluebounc :bluebounc

    I figure 50,000sqft for a truck with Blizzard 810, the 10' box 1.4 acres,and 20' box 4 acres. I use this for 2" trigger with no obstructions. Hope this helps

    There are allot of variables as I am sure you know. I think a 12 foot should get you about 2.5 acres per hour and a 20 about5-6.
