    I would definently go with a two stage snow blower. Try areins at areins.com. They make real good equipment. Look for the 824 model.

    Do a search, this has been covered quite a few times, but for my money the honda 520 would work perfect for that size area if you need to hual it as well.
    If you can leave the blower on site, a toro or honda two stage are the best built units out there, with the edge to the honda simply cause of the engine. However they are pricey, you can pick up a two stage unit from the big retailers for unde a grand, but might not last more that 5 seasons.

    I'd look into a commercial Simplicity also. I've got one and it is finally a blower that the college kids can use and not destroy on me.
