I don't know what type of contract you have, but if you stay on top of it, you won't be moving as much snow those long distances.
When I plowed alleys, I'd windrow wherever I could and scoop to the next available spot to dump. I'd try not to bury the driveways, but sometimes it's unavoidable.
Get a clear path open so they get their cars off the streets then go back and clean up.

Theres no contract bc im the maintenance man for the community so its my responsibility to plow the streets in the community. This willl be my first full winter here i started in march of this year n we didnt get much snow so i didnt do much. So this winter might be a **** show but i feel with all your guys advice n help it shouldn’t be too bad lol

Yesterday was a Monday for sure. Mounted the controller for the rear hydraulics back on the door. Of course the switch is in the down position, battery dead.
Tractor is pulled to front of stall,with the loader resting on the loading dock.
Nearly impossible to get to the battery. Post on the starter doesn't get enough juice to turn over.
Even if the stupid new fangled "smart" battery charger would charge the totally dead battery.
Just walked away from that, on to other things .
So didn't get the tractor home, which puts several other projects behind schedule.
We had 2 clean ups for yesterday , only got one done,because of messing with the tractor. And having to be greeters at our church for the community Veteran's service.
The wind is howling already this morning, and rain in the forecast.
Those 2 last clean ups for today may not happen. Rain for the rest of the week.
Didn't intend this to be a rant.
So.
Got a couple things in the mail yesterday.
This Nylint throughbred farms truck.
Very nice shape,Rare to find them with the dome intact.
This one needs a new windshield, that came in the mail yesterday too.

My new 9620 came yesterday too. I'll have tore attach the decals before I re list it.

Would a wide out be better than a V for this.
I think so as I once had a commercial property that needed the snow moved away from the buildings (commercial condos with garage and entry doors) that ran parallel to the street and away from the street as the parking lot abutted the sidewalk that ran along the street. I plowed it with a straight blade,v plow and xls. The xls was by far the most efficient. It amazes me that in my area they are just starting to gain popularity. I ran a v plow for 15yrs before switching to the xls 10 yrs ago.
