    Yep its true I bought several of these beauties. I had no idea how fast my purchase would be announced. I got 2 emails yesterday asking what I thought about these models, and I was wondering how do they even know, my brothers have no idea yet. So I call BlackIrish this morning asking him how he found out. He had a great laugh and mentioned my photo was on here. I cant wait for the snow to start and try out these blowers. There is a great chance I will also be purchasing one of Joe Blades snow wing pushers. Pics and vids will be coming after the first snow fall.

    This blower looks like it can get closer to stuff, so you wouldn't need a rear scrape blade? Is the blower 'action' a little different also compared to the others(maybe more 'open' so it wouldn't have as much chance to plug)?

    Now we need it to snow so we can see more YouTubes... :)

    I totally agree its going to get much closer, eliminating the need for a back blade. I would be very surprised if you block this one, but time will tell. This is not the first year that Mr Girouard has been building this. You are looking at 5 generations of changes, I think he has finally got it near perfection. That is why I purchased several this year.

    Neige it looks awesome and I wish you the best of luck with them. I was looking at purchasing a compact tractor this year and when I used the term inverted blower at my local bobcat dealer and New holland dealer it must of took them both a half hour to wrap it around there heads. I think the majority you use is inverted blowers. My only question or concern with that is after the equipment runs over the snow, do you have a problem with compaction or does the blower just rip it right up?

    Good luck with the new purchase

    Wow, that is a long time. I look forward to hearing about them. So is there a bunch of your old blowers going up for sale?

    I was talking to someone and this was brought up and 'the' reason an inverted blower is no good... :rolleyes:

    Hey Rich, when ever they give you that dumb look again, have them watch some of my youtube videos, that usually changes minds very quickly. I have 30 inverted blowers, what I like about the Artix is sometimes I need a rearblowing blower, now I have the best of both worlds. At times you may get some packed snow, but in reality its not an issue. When you have finished cleaning the drive some times you can see the tire prints left behind, but its nothing I have ever had complaints about.

    Will this blower take less power compared to others?

    I need to to learn French to understand the website. :)

    Nice blower! Must be solid if Paul's buying them.
    Artix manufactures pushers too?
    Send me something on them Joe.
    You still living here or did you move to Quebec?
