Re: Who makes the best snowblower?

This site helped me greatly 2 years ago to decide what I needed. 

 Conclusion=there is a group of brands making each other better by competition.

AND there is somegroups to avoid.

I'm happy with my purchase, esp. because of my hill!

P.S. why are people moving there snowblowers around so much in the summer?  In my garage the snowblower is inside and the car sits out in the weather.

the second biggest concern you have is deciding what time in the morning to start making noise from the overnight snowfall.

It need to by timed carfully = late enough to not make the neighbors mad-- yet early enough to get your driveway and ALL their driveways done too.=BEFORE THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO START THEIR BLOWERS!

Re: Looking for Two stage Snow blower with torque

 i have a hondaHS928TAS=9 hp with a track drive. My driveway is 18 degrees(looked like 30 degrees, but i measured it with a gravity protractor)- so i spent the 2 grand and got it.  ( i have  a $33.00 lawn mower to make up for it= 22 degree lawn).  

 I love it, a wheeled blower would NOT have the same traction. YES, they are a grunt to move when not running, but one should have a parking space for it and run the blower 2 times in the summer anyway.

I tried my old neighbors "streerable" blower and did not like it. My dad had ( and still has, with carb problems) a 1990ish craftsman track drive= i liked that too.

The honda motor is a lower rpm torque monster. The big cost in the blower is the Hydrostatic TransissionŽ, i change speeds and direction ( forward and reverse) WITHOUT disengaging the drive level=faster blowoing.

Hope this helps      18 degrees
