    I got one for this season, and it worked pretty well the one time that I've been able to use it. Here's what I've seen w/the whole 3 hours that I have on mine...

    Pros -
    1) light weight
    2) a lot easier on the back than a shovel
    3) pulls pretty well for a single stage blower

    Cons -
    1) it's a 2-smoke
    2) loud
    3) narrow cut size
    4) it doesn't like to go through the chunky stuff at the beginning of the walks.
    5) doesn't throw slush very well

    Don't bother paying the extra $ for the electric start, you don't need it. It has a very light pull, and starts on the 1st or 2nd pull.

    If you have a spreader on the back of your truck and need something that you can pick up and throw over the bed rails, this is the blower for you. If you do not have a spreader, buy a larger 2 stage blower and a set of ramps. 2 stage blowers are much faster, throw further, and cut wider paths.

    Just my $0.02
