    They do about 200 driveways with these and a truck to do the road. When the snow is fluffy they work great, The wet snow a Little tougher,it pushes the snow towards the garage doors and mound up.

    I can vouch for that snow equipped grasshopper. That machine is the best bang for your buck when it comes to sidewalks and small areas.

    Even my blower will push stuff up to garage doors. I've started going in and back dragging with the blower, which works pretty good on gravel driveways, and pull it back to where I can get in and blow it into a bank to leave everything nice and clean.

    Some asphalt driveways close to my shop I will just go grab my bucket to do them, people think their asphalt should be black in winter ha ha!

    those red ones look like a Toro. I used to run one in High School a long time ago. HATED THOSE THINGS SO MUCH. rear wheel steer, real light in the back end. One had a plow, one had a blower. The blower was super heavy and when lifted up, you'd lose steering. had to steer with the split brakes. They always got stuck, cold as hell in the cab, all around miserable. They sucked at mowing too for all the same reasons. I remember the discharge chute on the blower I ran would clog up about every 3 minutes. I spent more time off the machine clearing that than I did moving snow. I'd say at best, they'd work for a sidewalk.
