    Would this be at all feasible? Obviously this would only work if your accounts were all close by. I was thinking about something like a Farmall 706, 806, 826 (JDs are way too much $$$) or similar with a 5-6' snowblower on the back. A snowblower would get rid of the problem of running out of space to put snow. If one could get his hands on a hydro model, that would be even better.

    Thanks for any opinions.

    We use JD X series garden tractors with blowers on the front to clear most all drives and walks in town. These work very well on walks and there is less chance for lawn damage compared to plows and skid loaders. Only wish I had cabs on mine to keep me warm and dry!
