    just saw a threat about power brooms, got me thinking.

    I do alot of sand sweeping in the spring, and to prep curbs for bobcat sweeper, we use this (See pic). does a great job and is really quick.

    Another problem is sidewalks in the winter, and snow removal. any1 ever use one of these and know how much snow it can actually move? im thinking like 1-4 inches or so.

    depends on the snow. WET/HEAVY about 1" at max LIGHT/FLUFFY 2 or 3" max

    We use these machines all the time for walks.... They work great

    I would get a curb brush for your pick up bobcat broom.

    Or get a echo power broom. Great for getting in the corners of a parking lot and around parking barriers.

    We just started using one this year! Seems to work great for the smaller stuff. I have yet to haul it out for anything over 2"-3". Much faster then a shovel for the small amounts and if it is over the 2"-3" mark we just bring the snowblower! Give it a try on your next smaller snowfall and I am sure you will be happy with it!
