Very pleased with the snowblower. This my fourth. I tried a different approach this time, going for quality, and I think I got it. Also, it got here amazingly fast. Haven't fired it up yet, waiting for snow. Didn't want the gas to bad in it. I was looking
for some heavy duty tines in front, and these look quite sturdy. I made my own driveways, kind of rough on tines. I will clear the sticks, and adjust the height, hoping that will help. Will add to my review once I use it.
