    Any suggestions on a good small snowblow. Thinking of using one for handicap ramps and the few sidwalks and such that we do. Shoveling = no fun. Toro make a single stage gas job in the mid 300's but i have now idea on reliability for these critters. Anyone using these things?

    You'll prolly have to bump your budget up a bit to get a reliable unit. I have a Toro CCR 2450. 20" width 5hp. Works good for me!

    can't beat a honda unless you have a yamaha. MY yammy will throw a toro 30 feet. Apparently they'll be back in North America in 2010...can't wait. I've used my yammy for 40 drives for 4 years and nothing but ccutting edges and shear pins. It's a 1987.

    Toro single stage snow through is a great machine. I think it is modle #3650. I put one on every truck. They are great for side walks.

    Just replaced my 15+ year old Toro CCR single stage with a new Toro 2450. Can't wait to go out and break it in. Toro makes a nice little blower IMO
