    Toro's or Ariens those are the top dogs. John Deere's are pieces of crap have owned two and hated them both everyday I owned them!!

    I just bought two toro single stage today. I hope they work as good as what everyone says they do. I do all driveways and sidewalks(no plowing).

    I should have been a little more clear. I not sure on their two stages but the single stages suck!! you have to buy all new auger bars with the paddles, and its a pain in the butt to get them out. all you have to do with the toro's is replace the rubber paddles.. easy as 1,2,3 boom done :mechanic:

    Same here;Toro seems to be the machine of choice here.I was looking at the Simplicity unit.It seems nice,plus, it is made in the states.I can't seem to get any feedback on it though!
