    Hello everyone,I am new to the mountain retired and want to remove my own snow off my driveway 600' long 10+' wide and a slight hill is it better to push it or blow it? Bobcat or 4x4 tractor this is in Truckee Ca. We can get up to 10' a year and yes the last couple of years next to none, but you know my first year there it will nail me good. Just though I would ask you pro guys for some guidance!!
    Thanks, looking forward to your reply's

    Will this be a dedicated piece of equipment or will you have other uses for it?

    Unless you have ample space to push the windrows back I would use a Blower, a 4x4 tractor may be a better option since it can be used in the summer more than a skid in mountainous areas.
    Do some searching on here, there's all kinds of info regarding blowers on tractors and skids.

    Your only limited to your wallet. I personally would want something with heat.
