    Snows around here i can usally just use my walkbehind snowblower, but there are some big guys around here when we do get hit that got the big stuff.. Like bobcats/plowtrucks... Is that what you use?

    I have an 8ft plow on my truck and mostly plow residential driveways and small parking lots at doctors, dentists and vets offices. The guys that do large commercial have huge front end loaders and dump trucks like you would see at a gravel pit. Our state is set up to handle these storms so the roads stay clear. No shut downs here.

    they must do things differently in evansville from fort wayne.

    you don't see anyone doing snow removal in fort wayne without a snow plow on there truck. we use the plows for anything from an inch and on up. the snow blowers are just used for sidewalks.

    Same as everyone else.. i'm not gonna set up a truck and everything for the snows we get. I just use my walkbehind blower and do residential snow removal and can actually do small bank lots with it also.. But there are lots of guys here that have trucks/bobcats...
