    Well I finally decided on a new snowblower. I am picking it up on Monday.

    I went with the Toro CCR 2450 GTS. [​IMG]

    Did I make a wise decision :confused:

    Not sure of the "newer" model #'s but they have a chute that is adjustable from the side of the push handle instead of the manual handle on the chute, but what you have is similar to what I have and I love it, very powerful for the weight

    If ya lean on it you get down pressure, kinda a bonus feature, good luck

    Make sure you don't lose the cord to start it with. At your age trying to pull start it.Personally I would of bought a Sno-Way for the jeep!

    We have 2 and they are great.

    Went into HD yesterday and they had one on the floor, $549 and that's a good price for us. I went back today to buy it and it was gone. I need to be more like my wife, buy it whether you need it or not.

    I have an older Toro that I am retiring so it just seemed if the last one made it this long Toro would be pretty good to stick with.

    The plow on the Jeep idea was thought through. Only issue was when I am out of town the wife would still need the drive way done. She can handle the blower without a problem.

    Good to hear Dave

    Well if it's good enough for JD I know I made the right decision now. :drinkup:

    What else you all have hiding in that shed :eek:

    Another vote from Canada says yes. Thanks CET tymusic

    Went through the local Toro dealer, $499

    toros are great. i have had mine for several years now and have had now problems at all. it starts first pull everytime. my neighbor was actually throwing it away and i asked him about it and he said it didnt work. i snagged it and shot some starting fluid behind the spark plug and it fired right up. id say it is about 10 years old
