What's your view on why the truck mounted snow blower vs a snow plow?

If a driveway is paved it is safe and in short it is faster and does a better job but I have never seen one on a truck, we run 6' blowers on two tractors and plows on the rest, it really gets the snow out of the way but stay off gravel with these units, even my 2520 can throw snow 60 feet or better no problem, I can't imagine how far a rock or some other debris would go and the potential damage.
