Very much true in my case. I have a very good walk behind thrower but haven't used it since I bought my ATV plow as it is really a lot quicker to get the job done. I've kept the thrower in the event we start getting too much snow but that hasn't happened where I live. Additionally, I have almost a perfect setup to get the snow off my driveway. One side of the driveway has an area that slopes down away from the driveway where I load up most of the scraped snow. It then also melts away from the driveway so no concerns about melt/freeze cycles causing ice on the driveway.... atv is faster and more fun.
You run he blower with the skid steer?? What drives the auger?I bought this last November. I didn't like how my snowplow guy was plowing the parking lots at my storage buildings. It blows about 50'. Had to make a door and side curtains on the cab of my skidsteer. Took a couple snowstorms to get the hang of it. No more piles of snow. I do the drive at my house mostly with the bucket.
You're giving up much to easy, build ramped piles and build, build, build. My piles have been 15'-20' tall most seasons.Plows dont cut it where i live. The only way to move snow is with a snowblower..otherwise the piles become too high and we run out of room to push/pile..
Was thinking the same, but on cold days atv plow is much faster. Plow does a good job plus I have the power pivot and makes it even faster.A snowblower does a nice neat job and can get large amounts of snow out of the way. I find when using the plow it never cleans the driveway. Sold the atv plow and got a snowblower.
