    I have purchased this snow blower. I want your opinion on it. Of course I live in Central Va. so snow is not always promised but have several commercial plow contracts so I must be ready for when or if it does come. I needed something to do sidewalks. How will this machine do?

    If it breaks down it'll be fun getting that back into your truck.

    Well WB blower is slow in light snow but if you get 6''+ snow should work great

    Looks like great deal

    Anymore opinions? Hope to be using it soon. They say possibly a few days after Christmas.

    those track drive machines do not turn too great but you should get the hang of it

    Got the cast iron gear box which is a plus. I run a 26 inch wheeled model ariens and it works great.Great for big snows but if small the single stage machines come out. Those newer briggs if maintained start fairly easy.
