/ How far and high can I throw snow? #31

My experiences with my blower is that it throws wet mashed potatoes farther than light potato flakes.I am just plain running out of room to put snow. We've had about 250" so far, still about 80" below our normal. I am stacking it everywhere. I have Kubota B2601 with 24-26 h.p. and am thinking of a 3-point rear mounted blower. 50" probably.
There are times that the blower will be useless with our snow. Half the time it is wet mashed potatoes. You go to pick it up with the bucket and it falls out. Or, you go to stack it and it just rolls back down. I can only stack about 6-7' high. At times with the 54" bucket it is so heavy the hydraulics can't pick it up.
But for the times I can blow the snow my questions are: 1. How high might I expect to blow the snow and pile it up? 2. How far can I expect to blow it, distance wise?
Thanks guys. Time for some Tylenol. Five hours of pushing and stacking today.
I use a blower for the specific reason on not creating piles of snow because piles of snow create bigger drifts. I have a Woods SB54S blower. It will blow snow 50 feet or more. Not sure how high it goes, but I'd have to say it's at 10 to 12 feet high at the top of the arc if I have the deflector all the way up. How far/high the snow goes depends on how I have the deflector set.
