    Hi everyone. I have a 04 Cat 226B with a standard flow @ little under 16GPM. I recently purchase a used Erskine/ quick attach snowblower 72" rated at 10-16 GPM. I bought it from a guy who had the same machine than me but a little older who was pushing a little less flow...15GPM. I have seen videos of his machine and it will be good enough for doing my laneway. I don't plan on opening a commercial business.. Just for my own use. My question is will I need snow tires? I have a bran new set of utility tires on there now...so the rubber is soft and new. I have an asphalt laneway. Any feedback is well appreciated. Thank you
