Re: John Deere 1130SE or Ariens Deluxe 30 Platinum ST30DLE

Due to the cost of my place, I am on a tight budget.  Short of paying someone to plow, I figure can get a good workout removing the snow. 

Do you think the walk behind snowblowers will make it up the hill and how long do you think a 4-8" snow will take to remove?

I need help on deciding which snow blower to get since this is my first.  Challanges are that my driveway is about 150 yards (450 feet) long and ranges from 15 feet to 50 feet wide.  The driveway is on the fairly steep hill (approx 30 feet elevation) which will make it fun removing the snow for the first time at my new home.

I am looking for a snowblower that will have no problems making it up this hill and make removing snow a breeze.  For what I see, the John Deere 1130SE (lowes) or Ariens Deluxe 30 Platium ST30DLE (Home Depot) are my options without spending too much money on. 

Any suggestions or recommendations on other snow blowers?
