Blowing snow is harder than cutting grass, colder, messier, wet, but for some reason I don't understand, it is more fun.

I have a wide walk behind, 48", that I cut the grass with. That makes it fun. I actually have several, 3-48", 32", 36", 61", all for sale.

I disagree..but it probably depends on how much lawn you have! ;)
I use the snowblower probably an average of 10 times a year. 40 minutes each time = about 7 hours of snowblowing per year.


Lawn mowing = 2 hours every 1.5 weeks April to November. (November is leaf pickup with the mower) - That's 23 mowing instances per year, 2 hours each = 46 total hours per year. compared to 7 hours snowblowing. ;)


For me, snowblowing is waaaaaaaaay easier and far less hassle.
But I have a half-acre yard, lots of garden beds to mow around, and I use a combination of gas weed wacker, push mower, and riding mower. Winter is far easier, even in the heavy snow belt of Western NY. ;)

you would have to vacuum or blow every day . a real pia

Probably not every day, it would depend on the nearby plants and trees. If you had cottonwood trees nearby it would be a nightmare in the spring, and oak tree acorns, and maple tree seed pods could be an issue, but not all year. yeah, keeping it clean could be a hassle..but in this guys case, he could probably run a blower over the lawn once or twice a week, 5 minutes each time..he still has far less maintance than a real traditional lawn.

Using my 48" takes 2 minutes for the front yard, 1 for the side, and 3 for the back yard. Maybe. I agree snowblowing is quick and easy and not as often but after doing several neighbors, I get tired.
