    Is it possible to add a section to discuss snowblowers?

    thanks for the suggestion...we have discussed this before but seeing that we already have quite a bit of forums now, not sure it is something we will add. however, we will keep it in mind and let you know if this is something we decide to create

    thanks again :waving:

    Did you have a blower question or just had the idea?

    We definitely have a lot of forums... Especially when we have subgroups dedicated to Fluid Film and snow stakes. It's strange that what's arguably the best snow removal forum on the web doesn't have a snowblower section. Where are we supposed to post? Residential? Commercial? If someone posted a question about strobe lights in the Commercial subforum, I'm sure you'd move it to the Strobes and Lighting section.

    I mean, I guess I can keep getting my info from snowblowerforum.com, but I'd rather just stick around here.

    Just general questions about brands. I'm in the market for a nice used blower. It'd be nice if there was one place to search. The search function is marginal at best... Type in "Ariens snowblowers" and look at the results. Yeah, you can try typing the model number, but if someone typo' you're SOL.

    Just a thought I had on what I think is a pretty obvious feature that this site is lacking. Snowblowerforum.com usually has any info I need, but it'd be nice to get it all here.

    umm, why the attitude? I said we could discuss further (internally) and would let you know if it is something we decide to add...so again, we can look into it and let you know if we add the subforum

    Thanks

    The search works better than ever now, it just took me a minute to figure out what works best for me.

    Hit the search, click "more" at the bottom, then type in what you're searching for under the "keywords", then at the bottom click "relevance". Worked for me so far

    Didn't mean for it to come across as attitude-y. Was quickly typing from my phone in between flights. I'm a charter pilot in real life. :D
