    I've always been interested in the idea, but the $7000 cost was a little hard to swallow. How far does it blow the snow? How often does the shear pin break? How much does it weigh?

    The one I looked at had a 16HP engine attached to it and it weighed a whole lot more that a big HD plow.

    Hanson makes those truck mounted snow blowers.I have never seen one in use but the new model is supposed to be improved with more Horse Power. There was some talk that the engine wasnt big enough.The new engines are 27 hp.They have a little video on the website it looks like it works well but slow speeds.The Spec sheet says its only 800 pounds thats a lot less then i expected...

    Bruce is one of the guys Dwayne is the other. I have seen the blowers in action they look like they work pretty good. They are nice to have if you have to do a bunch of city lots. Last year was crazy for placing snow.
    Last year I did 2 driveways before he did 1 but i guess it all depends on who is driving and what the driveways are like. Plus i think a 3/4 ton is to small to handle a thing like that. You should have much better luck with a f350.
    Personally i would buy a tractor with a snowblower instead of something like this. But then again it all comes down to the situation.

    cheers
