    Hey guys, I’m here in Central Mass, my brother and I used to do 65 driveways with an L6060 normand setup and a 1996 Cummins boss V and Daniels pull plow.

    I'm looking at purchasing a new Houle inverted blower for my fleet. I have always run Normand, however Houle does look very well engineered. Anyone have any reviews on it good or bad? How is it dealing with heavy, wet snow, and snow at end of a driveway? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

    A friend is considering buying a used Sicard 2200H loader mount blower. Does anyone have experience with this model? Thought would be to use it for snow relocating on his larger accounts and as a sub for others. I know it can load trucks faster than a loader but wasn't sure how the single...
