Red face Walk behind portable Snow PLOW

Hope nobody mind - but I research a snow blower on youtube and came across two portable Snow Plows - figure I post the information here and ask if anybody know of either brand - and how much to buy or rent one of these ?

That last one resembles a lighter version of a Gravely.

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.

Neat but not neater than the plow attachment for some Yamahas that you can get, why settle for one or the other when you could have both .

Only advantage would be in smaller amounts of snow..One to tree inches and wet slushy snow.
I would like to find a plow blade for my 1964 wheel horse tractor..like this:


(not my photo)

To use in slush, or small amounts of snow..three inches or less.
In those conditions, a 2-stage snowblower isnt as efficient at throwing snow.
But a plow is no good starting at about 8" or more, because it might not be able to push that much snow, and you have to move the snow to the edge of your driveway, and it can build up fast..while a snowblower just throws the snow out into the yard.

Powered plow blade compared to single-stage snowblower: Plow is an advantage: never.
because a single-stage can also handle small amounts of snow and slush..and do it better than a plow.

Powered plow blade compared to 2-stage snowblower: Plow is an advantage: only with a few inches of snow, and wet slushy snow.

Thanks for the reply. I was under the impression a two stage could handle small amounts of snow ok if one kept the speed up to load up the impeller?

I'm kind of surprised that no one hasn't come up with a blade attachment for a two-stage blower

Some one has:

Slush Plow | Snow Blower Accessories | Snow Blower Attachment for removing Slush and Sleet
