For those who operate a commercial snow removal service, having the best equipment and the right equipment can make the difference between profit and loss. Therefore, knowing how your current equipment stacks up and determining if replacement or upgrading is warranted can be important.
Bigger the Better
Uniquely, this axiom is particularly suited for snowfall and for those commercial enterprises who rely on snowfall for profit taking. In a real sense, the larger the blower, the faster and more space covered, the quicker it is to move onto the next job and thus allowing a enterprise more contracts per season than could be accomplished with normal sized blowers.
Of course, that does not mean to suggest that one size blower fits all, no in fact, it requires multiple size blowers for a commercial enterprise to be truly effective and efficient and thus allows for better returns.
However, these multiple blowers are usually 27 inches or above in width to make it easier to cover parking lots or large surface areas.
Regardless of the specific purpose, large walk behind mowers make snow removal easy and quick, especially for large areas of deep or moist snow. Additionally, they tend to be among the most powerful of snow blowers and this is great for situations were the snow is well packed or especially deep.
