    I have a townhome complex that is a pain to do with a pickup. At this time we don't own a bobcat so I found a good deal on one of these.. Your thoughts

    I don't think Stanley is know for quality. But I would try to do some research on who actually makes it. Also I think it would be a pain in the a** to maneuver it around.

    Just buy a good used tractor with a blower on it. Typically all town homes, condos etc should be done with a blower. The main roads can be done with trucks because it faster. But if you can get the association to lend you a empty garage stall to keep it in then you are golden.

    I took a look at the machine today....POS. The engine didn't even have a brand name on it. Thanks for the advice. I'm keeping my eye out for a tracker with a snow thrower attachment.

    A buddy of mine has a dual wheel one similar to that, not sure what brand he has.

    Definitely not Stanley.
