    When I bought my BR600 the guy there said that if there was about 3 inches of snow out there you could do that. Apparently it works, and that snowblower idea is really cool, and pretty practical in a way.

    That snowblower idea isn't too bad of an idea imo! Its definitly a lot cheaper then a truck loader and should work so so. I use my backpack blower in the snow quite often. It works awsome in ligt fluffy storms!

    I use the BR600 for snow removal all the time for light snow. The only problem I've run into is the noise factor- much louder at 3 am than a shovel, neighbor came out yelling something, but I couldn't hear him b/c the blower was too loud.

    haha Ya sometimes I don't like using my quad too early also. Blower is probably louder though I am not to sure

    Some very inventive ideas here. I ran across a copy of Farm Show magazine a few years ago and I was blown away by some of the neat and useful ideas that farmers come up with to solve problems around their places. Check it out! Sign up for the free copy and you'll be amazed at what they have in there.

    yea where i live we dont get alot of snow but do get a few 1-3 inch storms and my backpack plower works awsome in the snow gets the job done faster that a snow blower or shovel. Especially good on steps.

    That is different...but seems like to me takes a lot of time...but if you had/have nothing else to do then why not....but not to efficient for time..but pretty cool video to say the least

    yea i agree for time purposes your better off just using a shovel or using a push mower to mulch em and pick them up. Thats what i am doing becasue i have no leaf loader or anything like that.
