4wd tractor with loader works nice, have one at work. bobcats get stuck too easy. but talking 7 or 8 grand for a decent used one.

Wow ...Woh. Nice Pics. Wish we had snow.
You must have had some higher winds to make drifts like that!
How much did you get done? Was it heavier stuff ,dry powder on top?
How many HP is that blower? Looks fairly large, gets the job done, slow going though.

when ever we get bad wind it either blows off the roof and in that spot or from the other way and in that spot. the blower is getting pretty wore out. its about 10hp 29x20.

I paid 7,000 dollars for a ATV and extra for plow and winch but it sure beats using a snowblower or shovel. You can easily use the ATV for other fun actives or work.

By the time I was done the snow was piled about 5 feet high or more. I was running out of spots to put it.

i never put one on my atv for a few reasons but primarily they live in the shed outback sometimes its a pain to even get them out let alone go through drifts. i dont have room in the garage for either. its 30x40 and i have 4 cars, my workbench/tools, all kinds of crap. i think if i finally get sick of the blower i would find a decent brand old used plow for the yukon. for as much as i used it wouldnt beat it up too much.

So is the snow storm gone now Justin, and fairly cold again?
I just looked at Buffalo weather, looks like it'* going back to more snow by Wed and 31F.
Our 7 day forecast is all rain, but snow in z Mountains. I am waiting for a day off & a blue sky day to ride the PA North again for a photo shoot. Blue sky days are rare in Feb, could be a while..

supposed to get to 30 or so today but back down in the teens again tomorrow. i live in orleans county. its kind of between lake ontario and lake erie, so if buffalo is getting it we do, but if the wind is from the north we get it from lake ontario and they dont. good place to be if you like snow i guess

..Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 4 am EST Thursday...

* locations...Niagara...Orleans...Erie...Genesee...W yoming... Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties.

* Timing...through late tonight. The heaviest snow will fall late this afternoon and evening...and will impact the evening commute.

* Hazards...snow.

* Accumulations...storm totals of 4 to 6 inches.

Oh my..another potential 6 inches.
Well look at the bright side..
It is a good opportunity to get the camera snapin some more pics!
Suddenly a snowmobile is sounding like basic transportation! Drive safe, take it easy there!
Look forward to more pictures, ever tried night shots, while the snow is falling?
