    I'm wondering the pro's and cons of the TCD models VS TC.
    The difference is the TCD has "joystick" control for the shoot. And DC electric start.
    Are these worth it, will I EVER wish I just spent a few hundred more bucks for the delux model?
    I'm also undecided on 7 or 9 HP. There is nearly 100 pounds difference dry weight and, and 4 inches clearing width which I think is significant. I imagine 11 HP is a bit overpowered for the application, though may be wrong. Never done this with a machine.

    If your doing a lot of larger areas,the bigger the machine the better.Snow gets very heavy sometimes,especially if it's been chewed up by the blower a few times,and the bigger machine with more HP will do a better job.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the extra weight,as you should be having to lift or carry a machine like that anyways.If you need something light and portable,get a small single stage.
