    I am looking for a 2 stage blower. Are Hondas worth the price??? How does the track drive perform? Better than tires? My other choice would be John Deere or Toro. Probably a 28" width.

    Thanks for your input!!! Lots of good info here!!!!

    Try turning that track drive Honda a few times & you will have your answer.

    IMO the best 2 stages are the MTD lines. They are lighter & can be tossed around w/out much effort. The Toros are too heavy & tend to ride up.

    MTD are ok for the money, but they are not commercial machines. Craftsmen are made by MTD as well.

    having owned a tracked honda I will tell you one thing, in downpressure mode nothing stops them... not even the asphalt patch I found in the neighbors driveway :eek: the only downfall is that they are heavy.

    Big Nate is correct, nothing will stop them, they are a great machine all I can say though is if you have to turn or back up alot look for something else because they don't do either very fast.
