I maintain 1.25 miles of private road. I found a blower to be too slow to do that much road. Over the years, I've found the most efficient method is to use the 8' FEL plow going forward and cleaning up the "windrows" in reverse with the 78" rear facing blower. That way, I clear snow in both directions when there is no place to turn around. The 78" blower matches the tractor tread width so I offset it on the 3pt hitch and work one side at a time.
