    Does anyone use these for their operations?

    I am looking a t a lot where I have to blow the snow from the lot into the holding pond.(4 acres)

    I found a 90hp 1999 unit with about a 6' blower on the front.

    How far will this throw the snow?
    Any issues that consistently come up?
    Is this the right application for this unit?

    I thought a tractor with a blade and blower but these can be very expensive with nothing to do in the summer time...

    Any help would be great.

    I have a 2003 MT5T, the Trackless Blower isn't the best out there, a Normand will throw more snow and is much more bullet proof. I also use a Case Maxxum 110 with a Normand 8' blower. For what I think you want to do a Tractor with at least 100 PTO HP would be required, and I would look at a blower with a movable drum, this will allow you to blow a lot more snow further.
