Comment:
No discounts when I purchased in 2012, but it's been a joy to use thru this terrible winter in Michigan! Handles mild and heavy snows &throws it where I want the snow to go (joystick chute control is flawless)! Starts with one pull, electric start is great, too. Speed contol has plenty of range, though I could use a slower indent for heavy snow plowed driveway blowing. GREAT value!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Clears the snowplow at the driveway end well which was my main reason for going two stage. Like the easy snow director too. This one did plug with very wet snow one time despite the anti-clogging system but overall it does very well.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
