Simplicity P1628E For Sale?
#2   Oct 3, 2014 9:31 am
My son went off to college, so the wife and I are downsizing into a condo. I have a Simplicity Signature Pro P1628E Snow blower (either 3 or 4 years old, can't remember which) that I am not going to need any longer. Given that nothing is wrong with it, what would be a good asking price? Paid $2,200 for it brand new. Advice anyone?

Hi All.  I am going to buy a snow blower soon and need some advice.  My driveway is between 20% to 30% grade for about 150 feet..   I am concerded that a wheel drive snow blower will not be able to get up a drive that steep with snow on the drive.  At what angle of incline does a trak drive blower need to be considered?  What is the primary puopose of trak drive?.

Thanks everybody for the input.

20-30% incline is the most I have ever heard!

Give me your coordinates, I'll line up the Simplicity then engage a suitable snow bank.   Wait a few minutes then prepare for incoming.   You'll need a very stout umbrella.

Using the Simplicity is like bringing a gun to a knife fight... Borat's the favorite.

My neighbor had similar issues. He sold it at a garage sale and bought a Simplicity... then moved to Minnesota. He said the Simplicity (Large frame) was worlds better in quality than the Ariens.
