I have a bunch of narrow residentials. This past winter i had to break out the tractor and blower for many of them due to the amount of snow we got. 3 weeks of looking over my shoulder and i decided to get rid of the tractor and blower and bought a skid steer. I still need to pick up a blower for it but stumbled into an 84" snoVac nearly new for about the same price of a skid steer blower. Just wondered if anyone has any experience with them? I think it would be the cats ass for many of my properties......

Lots of guys got pickup truck blowers. Since you already invested in the skid it's a tough call.

But if this truck blower will work as good or better than a skid without dragging a trailer around and sometimes having to back down half mile dead end roads it might be a smart move.......

Sometime you got to here more about your situation. I was thinking you might be roading the skid. If you got to drag it on a trailer most definitely not. Create nothing but a PITA for yourself not to mention the time you will loose loading and unloading.

How much time do you have?

I dont think 38 hp would have enough power for banks or heavy snow .
Hence the question regarding time.

If the OP wants a blower that is going to be efficient with his time, he better start looking for an airport blower.

I have access to a Unimog if **** gets real. These are strictly vacation homes with a 6" threshold. No real hurry to get them done.....
