We had a nasty snowfall last Wed., heavy wet snow. Of course the brakes went on the F-350 so had to use the 2305. Back blade wasn't much good because there was close to a foot of snow by the time I got around to using the tractor. So it was push with the bucket till it filled then go dump. Took me about 6 hrs. to do our drive and the two contracts I have. I've wanted a blower for sometime, so broke down and bought a Frontier SB1154 today. Cost me $2200, but it's going to be worth it time wise, at least I hope it will be faster. Would have been nice to get a front blower, but I can't justify $4700... Dealer also had a front plow for $1700 but I figured the best setup for me will be the rear blower with FEL. Besides that blade stuck out a long way and I'm not so sure that I wouldn't lose traction in the wet heavy stuff... Comments most welcome.
