RM 7500 BP as snow~Blower

Gotta say the extra airspeed at the tip (236mph) sure came in handy for fluffy snow blowing...especially for scrubbing 'some' packed-down tire tracks in driveways. They would just break apart and fly away!

We normally get heavy/wet snow here...but these last few Arctic snowstorms were easily managed. Having a windy day helped to completely clear double, even triple driveways...leaving virtually nothing behind, save for some stubborn tiretracks &/or foot prints. WB snowblowers and shovels always leave behind something. The trick was to not walk on the surface to be cleared and just use the wind to keep the spraying snow from hitting my face...cuz at these recent cold temps I could see frostbite being a true danger in a short period of time. (Note to self: buy a full mask! )

Would a 7500 be superior to an 8500, OR the other way around for snow~blowing purposes?
