    Hi Guys,

    Everyone has an opinion, so please share. I am in the need for a good, reliable snow blower to do walk ways. I have a 30" two stage that has been reliable but it is too big. I need something easily thrown in the back of the truck and carried up and down some landings that need to be cleared. A little too much area for a shovel, but not enough for a monster blower. My main concern is reliabilty. When I pull the cord, I want it to start. These will be short cylces, really not giving it alot of time to run warm which always causes grief. Any thoughts?ussmileyflag

    Toro single stage they are light and can take abuse
    i ran 2 of them throu out the storms last season and they took the abuse.
    dont get me wrong in deep snow like we had it was a lot of manual labor pushing and shoving these blowers but when we had a 6 in storm they went thru it like butter
