I have a north facing driveway with plenty of room on west or east side to blow. Driveway is not real long but gets heavily drifted in a bad storm being that I live in a very rural area and so get alot of wind. Up till now, I've been using my old Cub Cadet 129 tractor with blade on the front to plow..but the engine blew out this past summer. I have an old (and I do mean OLD) Bolens Artic 70 that runs and is working order after I did some repairs on it over the summer, but it just never seemed to blow snow all that well. Haven't used it in decades prior to just working on it recently. I actually have another thread on the forum about this machine. Recently bought a new John Deere 590 tractor but elected not to get any snow equipment for it. Rather than continuing to plow snow across the street (about the only place to go with it) into open field area, I thought perhaps a snowblower might be better? I was looking at the deluxe models, but would like suggestions. I don't want to stint on this..would like something that will handle heavy, wet, and drifted snow. Thanks for any input!
