    Was wondering if anyone out there used there back pack blower for snow blowing. I found it to work well and was good for blowing off cars, walkways, driveways and garbage can tops. Cleaned areas well and reduced the need for ice control materials.

    I tried using a redmax 7000 blower last winter. It only works if the snow is very light. A backpack blower really cannot direct snow in one direction if it is over 1 inch deep or wet. In my opinion a toro 2 cycle works much better.

    We employe the use of several Sthil (spelling) BR4oo's, they work great, have had them for many years, we use them for clearing snow from railroad switches, the snow we see is typicaly very cold and light.
