 Equipment for Snow Removal

My family recently purchased a five acre home in the country. The main road by our place runs east to west. We have a grove of trees protecting the house to the north and the west. Our driveway faces due north. It appears that snow removal could be a problem. The grove starts very close to the road. Across the road to the north is a large field. The driveway enters with trees on the left and right. My driveway is approximately 100 yard long and is protected.

My question is what do I need to buy to take care of snow removal this winter.

 Equipment for Snow Removal

Although it has been a while since I had to deal with snow. I have probably shovelled more than my fair share. We shovelled more than 35 ft a winter through my childhood. I guess for everyone to try and steer you right we need to ask a few questions.
What type of snow do you get? Wet? Dry? Ice?
- In the north the snow would not blow easily as it was wet.
What is your average snow fall?
- If you snow falls are 18" + of wet it is a little hard to blow unless the blower is attached to a locomotive.
Do you have any other uses for a tractor?

 Equipment for Snow Removal

One the main skill in snow removal is figuring out where to put it. With a plow, snow comes off the blade ends in banks that end up freezing and become hard to move. In places that get lots of snow, snow just can't continue to be pushed off the side of the drive or the drive gets very narrow by spring unless a lot of loader time is spent stacking snow or trying to push it back.

Snow blowers, except for the heavy wet falls mentioned by Peters, blow the stuff 20'- 30' into the yard and greatly reduces the problem of where to put it. However, I do think that blowers may have an advantage over plows in falls closer to 3í. At least my 3ph blower will chew itís way through 3í+ banks where a plow may have difficulty even taking it in several passes. At those depths, the going is very slow with a blower. With a plow, high banks probably are best cut through with a loader. The going is pretty slow with a loader too.

It might be good to note that the working ground speeds of blowers are much slower than plows for moderate falls. Somebody with a plow that has space to work with can afford to spend time using the stuff around and may still finish before a blower. Trees along a drive can greatly complicate plowing since the banks may not be able to be pushed back into the trees and the plow may not push snow ahead of the blade far enough to clear a tree line.

 Equipment for Snow Removal

Where I live, we usually don't have lots of snow. There are exceptions, but we generally get anything from a dusting to 6". There were Winters when the jet stream, planet alignment or whatever acted to give us decent snows. Every once in a great while, we end up with a rogue storm that dumps 24" or more. This past Winter, I had to skip breakfast and head out with the tractor so I could scrape the driveway before the snow melted.

With that as a reference, I have been doing quite well with a 3PH scraper blade. For lesser snowfalls, it's easy to cock the blade to one side and drive forward, throwing the snow to the side. For large snows, it works better to rotate the blade to the rear and back into the snow. About 6 or 8 years ago, we had a number of good snowfalls back-to-back. I kept pushing the snow back away from the driveway, and ended up with what acted like ramps to skid the snow off of and into the lawn. The driveway looked as wide as an interstate highway.

The most recent tractor (B7500HST) has a FEL which will be handy for the occasional deep snow, or to get downward pressure to scrape off packed snow. I am thinking the rear blade will remain the weapon of choice though...........chim

100 yards, this will require a Walters. There's a guy in NY who may have an extra http://www.roodness.com/waltinfo.html.

What ever you get make sure it got a cab and heat.
