      the plows hit the ground the minute it starts and dont come home till its done snowing usually about 5 or 6 hours after the last flake falls we are done. The guy i work for has about 30 commercial properties and condo units to take care of i have already put in about 70 hours this year playing in the snow and that was only 3 snow storms and the ice storm we got the other night.

      Oh i either run a backhoe, wheel loader or F550 Dump truck with a plow and sander

        I plow a shopping center for a commercial contractor. Six front end loaders with 20' pusher blades working 12- 14 hours. Before the first of the year all the snow has to be removed using 4-6 tandem dump trucks. Total time averages 30 hours straight.

        After the first of the year we just push the snow into big piles. It doesn't seem to matter if there is an inch or a foot of snow it still takes within an hour of the same time to push it. Last storm, an inch of snow and a half inch of ice, took 20 hours because we had to scrape all the ice from the lot using just the buckets on the loaders.

          B - after it's all done - unless a drift blocks something.

            You could always install a snow melt system on your driveway or walkway. They are a little pricey but it's definitely worth it throughout winters in cold and snowy climates. Heatizon Systems is the company I used and I love it.

                I realize this thread was started some time ago, but with winter hitting us again and my having had some wet snow which became ice and more nasty weather on the way soon, I figured I would post this video. This is how it used to be done and what a site it is to see this. Does this bring back any memories to the older forum members? Video #1 is the old timer way and video #2 is more modern. Both are serious ways of snow removal.
