    i thought about that but i have no use for a tractor during the regular season. i was thinking maybe a plow with a rubber cutting edge?

    Broom works better

    Any plow can still catch a paver

    yeah i thought so, ive never seen or used a rubber edge. any thoughts on solid broom manufacturers that sell a 36 or 38?

    I just saw a new Toro walk behind sweeper in a magazine, you should check it out on Toro's website.

    I doubt it, Toro doesn't make fragile stuff.

    We have 2 Arians. I THINK we have a toro too. Can't remember.

    Is it a mile straight or half on each side
