There is a few guys up here I've seen do that. They were all on older machines. I always wondered how the heater could keep the windows clear with all the snow hiting them. Maybe they don't.

In cities where they get a lot of snow, they often use hydraulic driven blowers that are attached to front end loaders. The most impressive blowers I've seen are the railway blowers that attach to locomotives. Man, those are scary.

Wow, you can literally see the s*** hitting the fan!  I am planning on try something like that this spring.  I'm looking for an easy way to spread peat moss.  I wonder if my Ariens walk behind will blow that stuff around the yard?

Give it a shot. Another brand that is very heavy duty is Fair. There is a video of one being used to cut ditches.
