Backpack blower

This morning we went out and had to clear about an inch of dry powder, so instead of shoveling we used backpack blowers. I was kinda doubtful about how effective it would be, but it worked wonders. since it was just powder it blew right off and left the walks DRY! this was very nice b/c we didn't have to salt the wlks when we were done. anyways just wondering if anyone else has tried this.

We started using them last year and have worked in snow up to 3 inches if it is real light. The only downfall is the noise. I have some commercial lots that are close to residential areas and I had to quit using them in the early A.M hours. Now we don't use them on any residential areas until after 7:00 A.M. One thing to watch is the throttle cables, we had problems with them freezing because of the blowing snow melting from engine heat and refreezing.

We used our backpack a few times when we had light powder, worked great until my guy forgot to secure the blower in the truck, went around a corner, and the machine smashed into a thousand pieces :realmad:
