 Blower or blade B7500

I am considering buying a B7500 or B2710. I will have to clean my 1.5 acre yard out about 3 to 4 times on the average year. I am used to using a blade. Will any of these tractors be heavy enough to push much snow with a front blade or would a blower be better. (I know it's way more money for blower) I will be buying the tractor with a loader as well. Maybe the loader would be good enough?

 Blower or blade B7500

Loaders don't plow snow deeper than a few inches very well. However, I wouldn't want to go through a winter without one. Loaders are good at pushing back banks and stacking snow. It also works OK for small spring snows after the gravel drive thaws. I just float the lift with the bucket angeled up enough so the edge doesn't catch. It takes off the top snow and packs down the rest without tearing up the gravel.

Snow blowers are difficult to use on unfrozen gravel. If you float them, the skids dig in and you end up blowing as much gravel as snow. If you try to hold them up with the 3ph, you end up blowing nothing or digging in at each bump and dip. Maybe I'll try putting some rubber wheels on the skids next winter. Blades have the same trouble with on unfrozen gravel.

Anyway, the loader gets me by early and late until the drive freezes. I sure wouldn't want to replace the loader with a front blade.

I think traction is more of a problem than power for snow plowing. Most any blade suitable for a tractor should be able to plow provided there's enough traction. Tires affect traction, and so does weight. Tire chains also are an option. I did OK pushing banks back using 4wd, turf tires and around 4000lbs. I never needed chains, but I might have if I was plowing, rather than blowing, the heavy stuff. Power, size and weight mostly affects how fast something can be done, not whether it can be done.

Ernie, I do alot of custom snow removal and my choice is a blower, the only way I'd ever use a blade again is if the blower was broke down. With a blower you move the snow once, no dinking around with a loader to make room for next snow fall. If you try to move snow with frozen rain on top of it you will see how quick a blade becomes almost useless. Tractor will slide off sideways unless you can take a small bite at a time, my blower has gone through snow that would have been next to impossible to do with blade.

Thanks guys for the advise. I think I will just spring for a three point hitch mount blower and crank my neck. They are about half the cost of the front mounts. When I win the lottery I'll get the front one.
