    What single stage are you guys using to clear sidewalks.

    I know the old Toro S200 are pretty popular...

    snow blower

    for small and light weight, i find that the toro powerlites work great for snow falls up to 6" there small but they get the job done also the toro 2450CCR is pretty good for a contract its a little heavy but runs good and both are fairly inexpensive for paddels and scraper bars

    The Toro 2450's or 3650's are the way to go hands down. I have a bunch of 'em.

    I have 4 toro powerlites, have used them for the past 10 years, get 3 to 4 years worth out of them, but they throw snow, and are light weight, and have alot of power, and pretty cheap.

    HOme Depot has the 2450 for $459 and if you open a consumer card you get 10% off. Now through nov 11th, here in central Ohio at least

    Hey neighbor. What have you found to be the best source for these blowers in our neck of the woods?

    Dan @ badgerland, I have been getting my toro's from the local dealer here in Oconomowoc, the name is Big Jim's Small engine, 262-569-5878, he cuts me a break on the price, and sets the sale up as a residential rather than a commercial, that way i get a 2 or 3 yr warranity,vs 1 yr as a commercial

    I would consider a Honda myself. Don't have one but have heard good things.
