    Here a couple of thoughts.

    For most snows under 12" or so, a blade will be much faster, especially for large areas, and long drives.

    For small areas that get a lot of snow, or in areas where there will be no place to push the spoils, a blower can be handy.

    A blower is also good for expanding the areas that might have shrunk because of the snow pushed from a blade.

    On the farm I work at in Northern Illinois, 99% of the time a snow blade is used on a 4wd truck. Every once in a while, a 6' blower is used on one of the utility tractors.

    I would get a inverted blower.

    It looks like a standard 3-pt blower would work really well on that unit.

    Just make sure you don't break it in half...

    A blower would be nice since you wont have to move the blade left or right to move the snow. Best of luck!
