    I've been using the 770t this winter for snowblowing.
    Starts right up, and in record time <compared to shoveling>
    it has kept up with our record breaking snow this season.

    It used to be, I would shovel off the roof and then have to clean up the ground.,
    With this leaf blower, it turns snow into dust, blowing the snow aways off.

    With using the shovel on the roof, I would then have to use a big snowblower on the ground
    to cleani up a huge pile across the length of the house.
    Most of the time, piles were 3 feet high....not anymore.

    Actually my boys have been using them too for residential walks and porches---works in 2 to 3 inches of powder real well--not necessarily faster but a lot easier!

    that's 5" up there and not to powdery.

    one thing I think that would work better is a flat nozzle

    using this one at WOT if the nozzle gets to close to the snow....
    it sucks itself into it like
    sticking your tounge on a flagpole

    maybe the voulme of air is high velocity and heats up the end of the pipe?
