    Hey ya'll
    I have been enjoying the posts on this site. What a great group of folks.
    I am finishing up my first season, having started a landscaping company this year. I'd like to get started in the snow removal biz during the winter season with just the investment of a snow thrower. I live in central Maryland so we aren't in the snow belt, but do get on average about 2' of snow in my area annually.
    My question is as follows:
    Any recomendations regarding an Arens 5.5hp snowthrower vs. a Craftsman 5.5 snowthrower? The Arens is about $100 more to purchase.

    Thanks and happy pushing:
