    lawnmaster I would go with at least the Snow-ex 525. I have a 325, and it's a joke. You can only fit 4 bags of salt in it, and it blows at least 2 fuses per night. I have even up-sized the fuse from a 20 amp to a 25, and I still blow them all the time. If I were to do it again I would at least look at the 525.

    Try getting out at every lot and spinning the spinner by hand before turning on. Thats works on mine!
