    What do you guys find that is a good, reliable and fairly light weight snowblower thats good for taking care of some fairly long sidewalks and tight spaces? I hear Toro makes some good ones??...Thanks for all your input and help.

    I have had super luck with Toro 2450's and a 3650. Around 75 lbs and powerful. I have the smaller Powerlites at around 40 lbs. Good for lighter snows but are overwhelmed by heavier wet snow. Overall a 2450 is a nice size reliable machine.

    The Toro 2450 is an excellent small blower IMO.

    We have a couple Toro Powerlites for the smaller stuff and 2 Ariens 926DLE's and a Pro 28 for all the big storms. The powerlites are light weight and as long as its light powdery snow, they work great.

    I keep seeing different opinions on using the power lites toros and the bigger two stage toros.

    Is this right on how or what to use on what: Light powder snow maybe what, up to around 6" = use the power lite blower?

    For deeper or wet snow, you use the two stage bigger blower?

    toros are good, JohnDeere makes a single stage that is nice (if a little pricey) also the Ariens are good machines
