    Hi all,
    I am new to this forum, and operate a property maintenance company and we are doing snow removal for my main client. We have been shoveling the apartments, and was wondering if anyone has ever tried a gas powered leaf blower? Temps out here in Big Sky country are pretty cold and most of the snow is very powdery and light (not like my former home on the shores of Lake Michigan).wesport
    Thanks in advance for your responses.

    Big Sky,
    the leaf blower will work fine, depending on the wind. A power broom will also work well. Both depends on the depth and the wind.

    They work great in my opinion.

    Get ready for a bunch of noise complaints though from people in the apartments.

    has to be very light snow for it to work well IMO, i used that for the first storm of the year last year as i wasn't ready for it with my actual snow equipment :cry:
