This is an excellent machine. It has plenty of power to not only move fresh fallen snow but also chews through hardened piles also. The only downfall to this machine is the scraper blade is too close to the ground. When operating on uneven ground the scraper
blade catches and makes it very difficult to push the machine forward. There needs to be adjustable glides on the sides just like on a two stage machine. Otherwise this is a very easy machine to use. It has plenty of power to clean up every part of my driveway
and walk ways and because its light weight and very maneuverable it makes the job reasonably quick and easy. In the future I would also like to see pneumatic tires and self propelled.
