Every tool will have it's place, plows can do some pretty impressive stuff during the winter but definitely have their limits!
What I am comparing above is the efficiency of a tractor with a mounted snowblower vs a walk behind snowblower in an oversaturrated fixed rate area
Snow blowers are great to get into hard to reach places, but I find them completely useless when the snow becomes compacted after a few hours. Snow blowers aren't the best for really scraping a driveway clean; there's just not enough weight. I suppose if you head out really early and do two or more cycles of your run, you could manage to avoid doing more work but still sacrificing time.
