Ran my Takeuchi TL 120 (factory tracks) in the past two snow storms. Clocked about 35 hours on it. This past weekend's storm dumped 30" of mostly heavy wettish snow on us...machine did absolutely wonderful...so much I wouldn't of wanted a wheel machine even with tire chains. Was much more productive than a truck with plow or even a skid with wheels. Though my hunch is that an ASV PT60 would have been even better. I could walk right through 3' foot snow drifts with no problem (with 7.5 myers plow up out of snow). Typical driveway in the two developments I'm plowing were averaging 150' of 12' wide drive with 30'x40' parking pad down by the house. Some of them rather steep. Took 20 minutes or less plowing with another 10 minutes chatting with homeowner. Was very meticulous in getting snow away from house and garage doors. Didn't get stuck once. Two speed was very handy. Everyone was more than happy to pay a Ben Franklin for the service. Best way for machine was to stick the plow about 20" down with straight blade and do an X pattern clearing driveway, then I finish up the remainder with the angled blade. When I got down to the icy stuff the key was to start out slow to avoid track spin. I calipered the track tread thickness before I started and ended up with the same average measurements when I got through. Can't believe the CTL is condemned by many for snow removal. We're supposed to get another 12 to 18" on top of this. Many parking lots and side streets are still full of snow.
