Comment:
Used over 4yrs. on large (6 car) driveway in the Tahoe snow. <br />Forget the electric starter it's just something to fail. <br />Only time it doesn't start on the first pull is when I forget to turn on the ignition or gas. Reliability & performance are outstanding.<br />Go for the tracks, skip the wheels.<br />Handles 18 in. deep snow in one pass.<br />People who live in Tahoe know how to deal with snow, Honda

Comment:
I use it for home snow removal. It picks up everything and does a great job on ice packed snow. Have it for 20 years now and only had to replace skid plates. No rust and has a strong quality engine.

Comment:
Purchased the track version of this machine, have a 150 foot driveway that is at a very steep slop down to the street. Have used other snow blowers but none other will clear my hill going up and down hill. Clears drifts and snow ridges with ease. Need to be carful for the through of the snow needs to be kept in check, its easy to blow snow off my driveway an onto my neighbors roof. Have the electric start but never use it always starts on second pull of the rope.
