    Whats the best walk-behind snow blower on the market today? I need to buy one this week, something like 27" width with maybe a 10 to 13 hp motor.

    We go through 1 or 2 a season and I like anything with a Honda motor. They seem to start easier and typically have a low oil alarm.

    Yes definitely look for a blower with a low oil pressure switch, you will be glad that you did instead of having to put a new engine on in the middle of the season or trying to buy a new snow blower in the middle of a snow storm.
    You will never be able to find one like I tried three years ago.

    Nino, where in VA are you located. Im in Manassas.

    P.S. I just had to replace a 8hp briggs & straton engine on my walk behind blower because it was older and did not have the low oil switch. Engine was just under $480.00 with shipping. All of my Honda powered small equipment has the low oil switches installed and the new blower engine has it also.
