    How much snow can she Throw?

    So we are in the midst of a major Snow Storm here in CT. Just wondering how much snow the 54 incher can handle at a time? Were are forecasted to get 18+ inches. About 8-10 on the ground now. I figure it could handle all at once ... however for the fun factor i may do it twice. Thoughts?

    It depends. Last January when we got 28 inches I was able to plow right through it taking full swaths with my 2720. I just went slow and allowed the blower to take in the snow at its own pace. The main shortcoming on the 54" blower is the height of the housing. It doesn't take very deep snow before it comes right back over the top and you start to tunnel. For the width of the blower it should have a taller housing. My old 33" MTD walk-behind has a taller housing than the JD 54" blower.

    That's another area where rear blowers seemed to have an advantage.

    I have yet to find too much snow for a blower. I clear my sidewalk wich can have a 4' pile. It may take 2 passes, the first on raised cutting through mid bank, then backing up letting to top remainder fall in and clearing that plus what was left under the blower on the first pass.

    I've found over the years, if I go out when 8-14" and then when so is over I can save time. Usually 5-8 hrs compared to doing every thing at the end of the snow storm.

    Either way when I use the 47" have never found anytime it wouldn't handle.

    So enjoy the seat time .

    I usually go every 8" because it will go over the top of the blower if it gets much heavier. I enjoy being inside the cab and running the machine. why an edge cutter on only one side? Have fun and be safe.

    After the late December blizzards we had, I had drifts almost hood height on my 2320, and nondrift areas were about 18". Took a full pass no issues with the 54". That's the nice thing about HST, you can just crawl through it.

    Around the dog kennel I plowed a path through the area that I had earlier blown snow into. That was like concrete and about 4' tall. There were a few times when I had to get off and knock the top down with a shovel as the blower tunneled under, and even with it raised the top was over the top of the spout! With it so hard, it just wouldn't fall on its own.

    Only time it has struggled is when we got our "January thaw" and temps were in the high 30s. I wanted to clear the slush off the road before it froze, even at WOT it only tossed it about 15', and it plugged the blower housing a couple times. But that was REALLY wet snow.
