    I'm surprised the OP bailed. It would be interesting to see some pics of past storms where he is trying to solve his problem. I wonder how it compares to the last few posts. Certainly the solutions are available to him, via YouTube.

    It's possible that if the county really stops plowing, his best solution for the available budget may involve buying this:

    If the intended use of the camp by its members is winter fun (ie: snowmobiling, skiing and other winter pursuits), such a solution may not be workable.

    Of course, but if the members (or customers) aren't willing to pony up big bucks for snow removal, then those might be the breaks.

    Pickup truck plows do not cut it around here; the berms/banks build up too quick. Tractors with plows front and blowers on back, tri-axle heavy dumps with highway plows, TLB's and large dedicated loaders are the norm.

    Well if you save your appetite until next winter at least you can also use salt.

    I had good success with a plow... didn't matter how much snow..but we haven't seen the 3ft snow lately here. No cab... but then again..i don't slow down for much with this machine.-img00716-20120226-1425-jpg I can offset the blow 1-2 ft to the right...(side shift..MANUAL lol)...which pushes the snow way off my 1400ft driveway. She is so heavy i've only had traction issues when the snow is 10ft pushed in front of the machine going uphill on an ice base. I'll be using it again this winter.
