    I just got a contract for a 54 UNIT condo assoc. What have you guys found to work the best for you? I usually do commercial lots and have helped other guys by back dragging drives w/my V plow(pain), but I am leaning towards backplows. Have considerd using mowers w/blowers, ATV etc. What would you use?

    any chance you have a skid steer? or maybe a friend who has an extra one? if not than it seems as a back plow would work well for that, i have never used one but seen some of the movies people put up on this site. i dont think a snowblower would be fast enough to make $ unless you have a 3 point tractor. just what my thoughts are

    I think I can find a skid steer. Are they really that much quicker?

    I run two Boomer's - utility tractors with front mount snow blower for all residential/commericial housing or condo units. If the snow is wet and heavy and I can't blow - then the skids and then the trucks with plows -
