    I haven't looked at Snapper products in years, but they have this new single stage snow blower that looks pretty interesting. I cannot find a replica from other manufacturers either.

    It's your typical single stage with the paddles, but it has steel serrated blades in there for the heavy stuff that is found on a two stage blower.

    What's your opinion?

    Looks pretty good to me.

    They look decent. The spec sheet doesn't list the weight but I bet they weigh ~100lbs. The other drawback was the electric shoot rotation. Too much plastic there to have any sort of durability. Maybe in a homeowner setting but definitely not for commercial use.

    :) That was the first thing I was looking for as well...the weight. I would have to see a side by side comparison to believe those serrated metal blades actually help. I doubt they really do much other than rust or bend.
