    I will attach a shovel to the mower, and push it with that :laugh:

    Push at an angle, backdrag, then repush at angle, not that bad...

    I was just teasing. I'd be out there using anything I could to make a few bucks if I were you.

    I never really invested in the snow removal part of my business until 4 years ago when I bought a new plow for my Silverado. Yeah I had a beat up old plow truck, but it was a rusty old 1985 that was originally intended for yard use, dump runs and plowing my own driveway. I got tired of spending hours before every storm putting bandaids on it and evicting the mice. And laying on a tarp under your truck in your driveway during a blizzard isn't much fun either. Plowed half my route with only rear brakes one time. Another time no wipers. Another time no heat/defrost...put a portable propane heater in it but it kept turning off due to the tip safety. And every time I got out and closed the door I left some of it in my customers driveways. The last time I drove it I took it for a ride on my back acreage. My wife took a walk back there some time later and came back with an armfull of pieces/parts that fell off it.

    I don't have a plow...

    I will put a bard on the front of the mower, and push it with that :laugh:

    A 30 foot driveway is an average sized driveway for snowblowing, you said about hitting the garage, I showed how to plow with out hitting the garage, plow is more efficient

    I have a plow truck and for smaller driveways I'll just snowblow or shovel them instead...did that yesterday in fact. All I would have done with the truck is hardpack it.
