Snow blower on gravel drive?
Hi - my driveway is ~200 feet long, all 1/2" to 3/4" gravel. It is pretty well packed, but not like asphalt.
So, the question is, will a snow blower work on it? I'd like to find out before I pay 750 bucks for something. I am looking at a used Ariens 8526, and need to let the guy know by tomorrow.
I have an '80 Allis-Chalmers diesel tractor with a plow and loader, but I got stuck pretty bad a few times on Sunday trying to clear the 16" we got. Plus, every time I get a little stuck, the wheels dig deep ruts in the gravel, creating pot holes. I imagine a 4 wheel drive tractor would be better, but that isn't in the cards.
And advice appreciated!
