New guy here. 6 miles up a goat trail and only 2 are county maintained. Yes, I have 4 miles of 4x4 single track road to plow. It also ascends about 1000'.
I use a k5 with a Meyer. I'm here to snoop for tips as the road gets pretty skinny this time of year. This is our third winter here and this year I'll finally get a piece of machinery to work more push outs.
Thanks for having me.

Yup! That's why I'm here lol. Snooping to see what other folks are doing. We got allot more snow this year and it's been ruff. Normally I wouldn't sweat it, but I recently rejoined the work force and I'll be needing off the mountain on a daily basis. Last two years we just stock up and ride er out. Last resort is skimadoo down to my buddies house 4 miles away on the county road and use my shuttle rig.

Just remember that blowers are generally slow. I’ve never operated a skid steer blower, but my Belos has more hydraulic horsepower than a hi-flow skidsteer and I figure walking speed, or less if the snow is deeper than a foot.

Would a skid steer be metter than a tractor, grader, or municipal machine for what you need in the summer?

Yeah speed is a factor. I can plow after a light snow 6"or less, in about 2 hours. For now I'm stuck with updating my push outs this summer and keeping my fingers crossed. Every year I learn something new lol
