Have not used the blower yet. We are getting our first major snow this week and should have a better handle on its performance. So far I have only started it and moved it around the shop to test functionality of the unit. After I charged the EFI battery
it started easily. I am impressed with the immediate response of the new differential when transitioning from straight ahead movement to a turn in either direction. Hoping it is as responsive in cold weather. Still getting used to having to disengage the
differential to move the unit when not running. Just a matter of becoming more acquainted with a new concept. Very much like the hydrostatic drive verses the friction disc. I have a 11.5 HP 28 inch cut that fails to move when the traction control is engaged.
I have to hold it down and let the disc heat up before it will grab. Very unpredictable as to when it will happen. Will be nice to get rid of that headache. Looking forward to more use and testing of the new machine.
