    Hi there,
    I'm new to plowing. I'm hoping to be successful with what I have, and my time. I go to high school full time, and I'm hopeing to plow in the winter. Or in my case, blow. I'm not old enough to drive, so I can't get a truck and plow. Quads are not an option as the city will not permit us to use them.
    I've got at least 4 driveways to do (including ours). I've got 2 on our street, and 2 on another. I plan on keeping one snowblower at my house, and one on the other street.
    The snowblowers I'm hopeing on useing our a 8hp Murray Pro Series, and a 10hp Murray Pro Series.
    I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with them? Or if they will work for what I want them too?
    Thanks alot.
    (This is not a half baked idea, I did go and get insurance and I also have snowblowers that friends will let me borrow if mine break)

    I thimk Murray makes some of the best snowblowers out there. I have bought a 27" 8hp Murray from home depot in 2004 and I never had a problem with it. I use it to do about five 1-4 car wide laneways each year. They are great machines and are very well balanced and is maneuverable. I have used it with wet/dry and deep snow and it never bogs down( at walking pace) . I have even used it to through 1-2" thick of ice and it had no problem. (I am currently 16 years old)
