    Looking at a community that has 3 sections where we would be responsbible for driveways. These are 2 car drives but some are joined with the neighboring house ( Duplex ). Trying to figure out what the most effectient piece of equipment is. Just back drag with SS plow? Kage to back drag and then box to pile? Back blade on tractor? Snowblower on SS or Walk behind SS? Some home made contraption to pull the snow to the street? I know someone has tried everything and come up with a best practice!! 2 Inch trigger and concrete drives so they dont want steel edge...

    Tractor with an inverted blower would be ideal and I'm sure alot of people would say the same

    Send a letter to all the old gentlemen in the facilities and tell them that you will supply Viagra to them, if they clear their own driveways to the street. Then you can just push the piles down the road.

    A 60 HP hydrostatic tractor with a Normand inverted blower would be best.
    This would require that you purchase a tractor. If you already own a skid steer max 65 HP then a Metal Pless ReverseMaxx with poly cutting edges would be great. This plow has hydraulic wings that are 30 inches long and the moldboard is seven feet wide and 26 inches high. There is no angulation on this plow, and should you ever need steel cutting edges, this plow is ready to receive them.
    Hope this helps
