Do you prefer to use a snow blade or snow blower?

I like the snow blade but the only one I have that works right now is the one for my Massey MF12 and that thing is a beast to lift up manually.
The snow blower on the other hand has the lift helper springs and it is easier to lift then the snow blade. So for right now I would have to say the snow blower is my favorite.
I did get a snow blade for the Cub Cadet 147 and that has electric lift but I am missing a piece that goes on the lift for the rod to connect to. I think once I have it setup that it may be my favorite piece at least till I put an electric actuator on the Massey.

A blower will move the snow well back from the edge of the drive and maintain the width.

when we only get a couple inches I use the blade, but when we get over 4'' I use the Blower.

When its windy out I blow snow with the wind direction and you just can see the snow flying in the air going to who knows where.Larry
Funny, that's the same technique powerking56's neighbors use when dealing with their leaves.
...we have NO trees in our front door yard, but I'd swear we end up with more of our neighbors' leaves than they all do......

i would like to use the blade on mine but the driveway is so short and its such a pain shifting and maneuvering that thing with the 10
the blower is much nicer
the blade would be nice on the hydro 14 but thats not back together yet..... maybe by summer LOL

As far as my snow removal I preffer to use a blower. I have a narrow driveway and limited space up around the house to put snow. I have used a front blade on light snow falls as it is actually more fun to use in my opinion but for any real amount of snow I have to get the blower out so I can make sure I don't run out of room to put the snow by spring. I have a gravel driveway and yes the blower does throw some gravel. I blow the snow up on the side hill and figure eventually it will roll back down on the driveway! At least I don't have to rake the gravel out of the yard each spring.
