Default Snow removal with a forklift

I was wondering, what options would I have for snow removal, with a
pneumatic tire forklift similar to this one:

Can't get your link to load.But no matter,forklifts are TERRIBLE in
snow. They don't even do wet grass. Leave the truck inside. A scoop
shovel would be faster.

Now, I bet you can find a great snowblower that only needs a minor
repair for $50.

Only two real options. Plow mounted on the forks (did this at one shop)
Building your own is easy just find an old P/U plow and make a set of
rails that you can clamp/chain to the forks.

Other option - Hydraulic powered blower. Using either an extra pump OR
since weight isn't a big deal make one up using a small engine and a
high flow pump.

Fork lift won't work. You need a chicago snow plow complete with
ice scraper on the back side.

That link works. Your lift is very similar to mine. Your unit will be
worthless in even one inch of snow. If you need a reason the weight
distribution is all wrong. Huge counter weight over the non driving
wheel makes it far worse than those old rear wheel drive pickups.

No, that is a rough terrain forklift.

An outdoor forklift with pneumatic tires can operate on gravel, which
is what I have.
