    That looks like it does a great job. I used to plow at a school system that used them on their sidewalks. How much do those things run roughly, if you don't mind me asking?

    GREAT video!! I love how it gets all the way down to the surface!

    Every now and then I'll see an old power broom for a walk behind Gravely (of which I own two). One of these days I might pick one up. For now though, for the small snowfalls that seem to be the norm around here these days, I'll just use my little single-stage Toro snow blower. If we ever get any real measurable snow, I'll break out my tractor. I haven't had to (or gotten to? ) get the tractor out for the last 3 seasons.

    Thanks for posting the vids. We all talk so much about plows and snowblowers and FELs for snow removal, I think the brooms are an often forgotten option.

    When I worked for Wending Creek Farms (John Regis) we used brooms quite often. He had single lane paved lanes running all throughout the farms so he could ride around and see everything - miles of them. The brooms worked very well up to 3”. He demanded the roads always been totally clear. Even in a decent plowable snow we still finished up with the brooms.

    I was thinking about sweeping snow today. It make me think of my late father in law, a great guy who was taken way too young. He would always sweep the driveway when there was about 3” or less of snow. The driveway is about 175’ and gravel/grass. Made me smile thinking of him out there doing it. For heavier snows, the neighbor came over with his big Massey Ferguson MFWD with FEL.

    I never think of the broom for the deck or front steps. Could have used it for my deck yesterday instead of the shovel.

    I used it again today when I got home to clear a couple more inches. I will be doing some testing Friday night as it is calling for up to 10”. And then will definitely have to drive backwards and try out the new Frontiers SB1154
