Tractor with a plow and blower attachment?

Saw this on Christmas Eve. Older fella that lives down the street from my parents. I'm at a loss as to why he would want a plow in front of his blower.

i've never seen a blower and plow attached to a tractor maybe the plow was just sitting there and he parked the blower on top of it

or maybe he has commitment issues with using more then one thing at a time. or he could be a little OCD.

I would guess the plow is for lighter snowfalls, just an inch or three..
no snowblower use when plowing.

then for heavier snows, the plow can be raised up so it's higher than the snowblower,
then the snowblower works, but no plow..

or..if the plow cant be raised up, it can probably quickly detach..
Put on plow when the plow is needed..but you dont need to remove the snowblower.
(which is probably a major hassle, so keeping it on would be a bonus)
then remove the plow when the snowblower is needed..

I agree with Scot, it does appear to be mechanically and hydraulically attached to the blower. Could also be used as a drift buster in extremely deep snow.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I have thought of attaching a plow blade to the front of my garden tractor mounted snowblower to push slush off of the driveway. I would need to attach some brackets to the snowblower so the blade could be put on/off easily or it would just be another hassle. I do have a blade that attaches to the rear of my tractor on a sleeve hitch that I use to push slush, but is a pain to turn around looking backwards when using it.

some ideas from the 'tube:

I think we have discussed this one here before:
kinda pricey at $300..I like the home made one better!

and if you have a spare snowblower tractor without a bucket, this is a cool idea:
