indeed. My neighbor has something similar and that thing is awesome
Although I like my Menards version, I used my inlaws Cub Cadet this past snow. 6 fwd speeds, 2 reverse. it also seemed to have a higher geared auger and a lower geared transimission. That thing just chugged threw the snow, and threw it like no other. My menards/mtd the trans and auger are about same gear ratio so to throw further, you have to run at full throttle.
electric (cord and then remove) start
buy 'pot metal' carriage bolts for sheer pins....a lot more affordable
Don't waste your money on a Craftsman from Sears. MTD makes their stuff along with models like Huskey, Yard Machine, Cub Cadet, MTD, and I think Troy Built. They may even manufacture snowblowers for others. There is nothing wrong with MTD. It is usually thought of as a lesser brand, but my Husky has lasted me over 15 years with nothing more than oil changes, a spark plug, and pulling the jet out of the carb once to clean it. No need to spend the extra $ for the Craftsman name. Most all snowblowers have either a Tecumseh or Briggs and Straton engine.
Ariens is #1 when it comes to snowblowers
Correction, Tecumseh no longer makes small engines.
Have a 10.5 hp Yardman (MTD) that has been a workhorse for over 15 years. Cost way less than that too. Don't necessarily have to go expensive to get something that will work. It does have a Tecumseh engine so that helps.
I have an 8 hp 2 stage MTD that I bought in the fall of 98 that has been a solid performer for me. Of course I most likely just gave it the kiss of death but I have gotten my money's worth.
They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
