    I am looking into buying either a high end walk behind snowblower or a snowblower for a JD x304 (2wd, 4ws, 17hp kawa). I do not want to use a truck plow because the driveways aren't big enough to justify it, and I would still need to take care of the sidewalks. The walk behind snowblower would be much easier to transport, but the JD snowblower would be around $1,000 cheaper. Also, what brand of snowblower would you recommend? Is it worth it to get tracks over wheels? Thanks for input.
