    im looking to buy a used snowblower to use on sidewalks for heavy snowfall, also to use on a bank side walk which is fairly large(dont have exact square footage yet) that im getting subbed to do for my local boss dealer. im trying to decide what hp and what cutting width blower to go with. ive found a couple nice 5 hp 24" cuts for good prices but im just wondering if they would be too small to do a largere side walk, but it would be nice because they are lighter.. also looked at a 10 hp 32 " tracked blower but personally think that would be a little overkill and heavy to keep loading in and out of truck even with ramps... what size would you choose?
