There are snow blower in home depot.. haven't seen a snowplow machine on
the marketing.. is it possible to build one? If not, why??
What about having something like a snow pusher thing attached in the front
of a lawn mower or similar (perhaps more powerful need) machine.. Will it
In additional to my question... the idea is to use something like this
"Garant snowplow". If you have used one of this before, you will know all
the snow goes on the side while you push forward.
When I was a kid (late in the Ice Age), we had a walk-behind snowplow. As I
recall, the blade (fixed position of about 30 degrees to one side) was
about 2 feet wide and the engine was 5HP.
It was OK for the first snow - except for the wide apron in front of the
garage: too far to push. When additional snow fell, the snow piles blocked
the way for pushing additional snow. A snowblower is much better.
I saw a guy on TV using a leaf-mulcher to blow snow! You know the kind:
Hangs on your shoulder, sucks up leaves, grinds them to mush, and blows them
in a bag (no bag for snow).
There was something awfully unsettling about what he was doing, but it
seemed to work.

==========================Plows honestly work very well for the first few snowfalls of the year,
after which it is very easy to end up in a situation where you have no
place to push any more or new snow...
Been there done that.... Give me my snowblower any day of the
week.... or better yet I should just move South ...
