I am considering a Stihl BR600 for leaf removal on a farm property in the fall but wondering how much snow I can blow at my house in CO at 8700 ft.? I have a long drive and usually do the removal myself with a wide shovel and a snow blower. I remove even a couple of inches because if I don't it turns to ice. The snow is usually pretty dry and wondering how effective the leaf blower would be? It would seem for up to 3 inches or so it would be pretty effective and faster than other means. Anyone have experience with this?
