    The HS520 worked fine for my needs....typical Northeast NYC snow...
    It's mainly used for the front of my house sidewalk and out backyard/driveway....

    I like the machine due to it's size- space out here is a premium...
    I knew purchasing it, it was a single stage.
    The unit works great except when the fact that I live on the right side of the street and the snowplows ONLY plow the right and I am constantly getting plowed in.

    So it's got me looking at a Ariens ST26 or a Honda/Toro equivalent.
    Something smaller in footprint is more preferred over a big beastly dual stage .

    Thoughs, suggestions

    I would stage with the Honda line of snowblowers, HS724 would be a good option for you, wheel or track version.

    Snow would not be an issue.

    Ditto, Honda commands a higher price but, You get what You pay for. I'd buy another Honda in a heartbeat.
    My HS 520 has been good to me too. I also have a Toro 826 that is the back up to my Cub mtd on the front of my 3205 tractor. And then there's the Fisher on the truck.
