    Lawn Mower Snow Blowing

    Having a slow day at work and was wondering if anyone has ever used their lawn mower as a snowblower? Can you even throw snow with a mower? Not that I would need to do something like that but if you really needed to, would it work?
    Kind Regards, Gary

    exactly what i was saying. it doesnt even work that well. and its pretty wasteful with gas since you cant do it with deep snow. better off using a leaf blower for the smaller amounts and the lighter/fluffy snow
    Do a job right the first time, so you dont have to do it again.
