how big a driveway we talking about here? why scrape it to the dirt?? this guarrantees very short equipment life and possibility of property damage (car headlights.. windows.. siding etc...) or even worst! injuries! rocks fly alot farther than the snow sometimes...

E350. I hardly ever recall discussion on Orange Tracks. ~most~ of the tracked threads always seem to be on Big Reds

Ariens tracked models only go back as far as 2008, as far as I know.
All the tracked models are listed here:

(mixed in with non-tracked models)

E350, wanting to scrape a dirt driveway is not a good idea (JMHO).
If you want to "scrape" the snow, you need a solid and even surface to begin with.

Maybe an older Gravely would work better.....?

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
