    northerntools sells a Northstar brand made by Murray - think they label their Performance brand for Northerntools.com.(Murrray, Murray Performance, YardKing and Blizzard brands) - looks pretty nice - 8.5hp Tecumseh 27" headlight, elect start - 2 phase.

    Looking at This one from Northerntool

    Roughly equivalent to THIS ONE by Murray:

    Need any experiences please with Murray product?

    If you have a Sam's Club near you they have a 26 inch 10HP Gardenway(made by MTD) blower for $740, we have a Yardman(also made by MTD) that we bought 4 years ago from Sam's and haven't had a problem with it.

    Those Murray's/Yardman/MTD/& million other rebadged brands are the best 2 stages going. Lighter & more maneuverable than the Hondas Toros & Ariens, less expensive, easier to repair & they throw snow as well & don't ride up as much.

    Well - thanks for the input - between your help, multiple calls to hardware stores in Minneapoils (my old stomping grounds) and family members, it seems that the product, features and price I got are great.

    $860 with free delivery, lights, 8.5 horse and lights is okay by me and more trustworthy than (uggh) ebay.

    Should be an easier winter this year - I hate shoveling my 100' double wide driveway (with grass in the middle) by hand.

    Thanks again.

    Oh - btw - I am having a heck of a time finding chains for the Snow Hog 16 X 4.8 tires. Scoured the internet. Lots of 16 X 6.5 chains - must be special size and Murray is out of stock. :(

    Also I see they measure tires in all sorts of wierd ways - anywhere I can find a reference that'll translate 16" X 4.8" into all htose wierd numbering schemes I see all over for Snow Hog chains?
