    I just bought a new CCR3650 this season (a couple of weeks ago actually) and it surprisingly efficient. The model I bought is actually a 2006 model, but it was new. I have an in-town driveway that I ran out of room to push snow and cant get a bucket loader in due to low wires to the garage, so I had to start snow-blowing. I didn't want to haul around a 2 stage and ramps so, after reading up on the single stages here, I decided on the 3650 and love it. It eats up the fluffy snow like it wasn't even there. The wet, heavy stuff isn't much of a challenge either. I have to go slower, and it doesn't throw it as far, but it still gets the job done. I have even had moderate success chewing through the pile at the end of the drive. I had always pictured these machines as cheesy homeowner toys for those that didn't want to spend the money on a real snowblower, but after using one, I will always have one!

    I'm sure that someone makes a bigger single stage, but as far as I'm concerned, this unit is a perfect ratio of power to weight. Any heavier and loading/unloading would be a chore, and I can't imagine increased power would be worth the extra weight.

    Sorry, forgot the part about the specs. Again, mine is a 2006 model.

    Cutting swath = 20"
    Engine = 141cc Toro R-Tek (Briggs & Stratton) (I don't know how that converts to hp)
    Weight = 75 to 80lbs maybe?
