I live in the country, all open with nearly a mile of cropland all around me. My driveway is elevated so the wind blows it clean most of the time but around the buildings I get substantial drifting.
Most of the area is gravel with a concrete pad in front of the garage and buildings.
Current snow removal equipment,
1025R w/ Mauser cab, 54 Quick hitch blower, 5' rear blade w/shoes.
318 no cab 54" front blade.
I use the 1025R to blow the drifts and the rear blade to touch up where the blower rides upon the snow.
The 318 I use for sidewalks and the concrete pads.
I don't use the skid loader because any place I can pile the snow it either puts rock in the fields and lawn, if the ground isn't froze it tears up the lawn, or the piles make the drifting worse the next time it blows.
When the drifts get really deep it takes forever to get through them with the blower and although it only takes me 15 minutes with the 318 with no cab it gets cold, I'm getting older and more of a weenie LOL!
I don't really use the 318 for too many other things the rest of the year so it just sits around in the way.
All of the videos I see of the SB 1154 blowing snow looks like it blows more snow than my 54 front mount.
So what I'm thinking is sell the 54 front mount blower, the 318 and all it's attachments.
Buy a rear mount blower and either a blade for my quick hitch or a loader for my 1025R.
Backing up is not a problem I drive a dump truck and can use the mirrors on the cab to back up. I don't have many obstacles to avoid.
