Thanks for the comments!
The second version is more of an update. I'd like to change the scraper arm to add 45 or 90 degree box ends on each side to help minimize passes when back dragging @ the garage doors. It's like the difference of plowing with a straight blade or containment plow (box plow). Also, I have contemplated adding a heavy tarp that goes from the top of the scraper arm to the top of the box on the snow blower to keep snow in on really heavy dumps. It would be the same idea as the pronovost pxpl. So far it hasn't been an issue with the small amount of snow I actually have to pick ip between the front of the blower and the garage door.

The tracks are just CAT factory versions for the MTL's. They work very well in the winter and are about the same traction as wheeled machines.

Yeah, box ends would really help on some of the back dragging. It seems that there is always room for improvement in the equipment world. That trap idea is great! I wonder if you would need to use something a little heavier duty though, such as maybe pond liner or something like that to be able to handle the weight of snow pushing up from inside of it. Just an idea though!

It's a small backyard, with tough water management, but ended up looking great

The retaining wall stone is called Flagstack. This is our first time using it and I'm happy with the results
