    Thanks, and yeah....that was a fair amount of snow. The amount of snow was not the problem, it was that damned wind!

    Geez that thing seemed to work a lot better than the onces we use at the company I work for. Ours always seem to clog up so damn easily and yours just blew right through that stuff very impressive.

    It is supposed to cost 1,600-1,700$........BUT........I found this one and another one used for 300$ each. Had to drive 900 miles round trip, but it was worth it. The snowblower is OLDer, like pre 2001. Not sure on how old it is. I had to do some fixin and make the lift handle, stuff like that. wesport

    This is the first storm I have used it in and it was super cold, dry and fluffy. It was about -27 with the wind chill. I am not sure how it will work on a wet soggy snow, but I think it will do just fine! That thing spins so fast I can't see it being a problem. (for the usually puny snows we get)

    Thanks!

    It will be a little more fun when I get used to it. It is definately a different beast.

    Looks awesome, that's my plan if we ever switch to walkers, now you just need a cab, maybe rig up a heater. :drinkup:

    Believe it or not.....Cab WAS my next thing to do....

    With this setup I think that the cab may not be needed. I had so many layers on I was actually comfortable. I am only on it for a few minutes at a time, then back to my warm truck. If I can handle 30-40mph winds this time out I think I will save my $$ for now and just load up on the clothes!:yow!:

    I wanted to see how the unit turned around. You made a path but did it get stuck backing out or turning? That thing really blew snow though!

    I usually just back up to an intersection, or the end or whatever. If the snow is really deep, and a long way from the end/or intersection I would just lift it up a little and make a spot to turn around. If anybody complains about me driving it on their lawn....hell it is a lawn mower! If I keep the drive tires on a solid surface or clear spot I also could just *whip* the tail over the un-cleared snow. My wife didn't record me turning or else I would put that vid up too. Maybe next snow.

    well, I did break a Deck Support Arm.....but that has nothing to do with the blower. The piece was rusty and allready cracked, So I think it was doomed to break sometime. I welded it to get through the storm and have the new parts on the way.
