    New Video: 47" Snowblower in Action Removing very light coating of snow with my 1025R

    Just posted...There has been a lot of talk about if this machine can remove a very thin coating of snow? We don't always get this type of snow to try it on and I think my 1025R did a really great job. I don't have it set to the absolute lowest setting but if you are thinking about this setup please watch my video and see what you think of it's performance. Feel free to comment or subscribe also I work with a lot of different things around the house and farm that might interest you to watch. Best wishes.

    They (both the 47 and 54 blower) can do a good job on a light snowfall, they just aren't the most efficient.
    It won't blow it as far, and it's a bit slower.
    Even last night with our 3" I would have loved to have a back blade. Windrow it all to the edge then blow it away!

    Oh well... can't part with the $700 for the EA one, and I really want the versatility of how adjustable that is vs a cheap tractor supply or runnings version.

    My 47" on the X738 does a great job on any amount of snow and I do have it set at its lowest setting (asphalt). The 1-4" stuff no problem just let it rip and fly thru the snow. or use a leaf blower on the 1" stuff! I prefer the snow blower because of the heated cab! No blowing back in your face either. Nice video Silver Cymbal.. Zildjians?

    This is true **IF** you have a paved driveway as you can keep the scraper blade all the way down. Our neighbor uses his walk-behind even with 1" of snow and it scrapes it down to bare pavement. That way there is never piles of snow along the sides. When using a tractor mounted blower you sometimes just have to go faster to get the snow scooped up into the auger.

    With gravel it's a completely different story as it's nearly impossible to use the blower on a couple inches of snow without collecting a lot of gravel in the process.

    I also second the leaf blower. When you have those 1-2" fluffy talcum powder-like snows nothing beats a leaf blower (other than maybe a tractor mounted broom but even the broom cannot clean off the cars and walkways like the leaf blower can). :-)

    That little bit of snow would not bother me. As long as we can walk and drive out easy. The effort to use the tractor does not seem worth it to me. But for you guys that want to go out and play with the snow ... have at it.

    The JD can be a toy but donít tell the wife that.

    The thing is, if you get a lot of those "little" snows, it adds up. If you never move it, then it all gets compacted and turns into ice and can get rutted.
    This makes it difficult to move the big snows when they happen. Also takes longer to clear off and dry out come spring.

    My process is that if it's paved/concrete, then it should be cleared of snow.
    Gravel gets a base packed down to save from pushing/blowing rock.
    Grass gets a layer to protect it and reduce winterkill

    Yes it did a good job,but a blade would be faster for lighter snows and save wear and tear on the blower.Maybe a back blade with the blower combo as Cutty72 suggested.
