    Well...I am now in the market to add either a snow blower or put a plow on my atv. One of my new accounts wants 600' of sidewalk cleared. Just curious what yall think would be better....plow on atv or snowblower?
    The sidewalk in questions is 6' wide

    Hands down ATV w/plow. It will save you tons of time.

    I have a 4' blade on the front of a Plolaris 700 Twin. I attach a 175lb. pull behind spreader to salt the walks.
    I choose it hands down over a blower.
    The only down side is that they aren't very agile.

    I use a 10HP Husqvarna Snowblower for walks and anything I can't get at with my plow. Nice unit.

    I've owned both. I think the blower does a real pretty job, but the ATV is way faster and more fun. Also cost 10 times more. My 700 had a five foot plow that wasnt big enough. Nothing could stop it. If time is a big deal I'd recommend the ATV, but the blower will pile snow real high, if you need to by the end of the winter you should still be able to throw it up over the snowbanks, where as the ATV might eventually run out of places to put the snow. Some people think snowblowers are more dangerous, but they are not, because you can't roll one over doing donuts in the street ;>
