My brother advised me to get a Honda snow blower after reviewing many videos and reviews that's what I got. I am a first time home buyer ( single female) going into my first winter on the Vineyard. We just had our first blizzard of the season-- my first
words out of my mouth was "this thing is a beast in the snow!"
I've used other snow blowers and knowing how they should handle including easy to reach and use knobs. I wish this blower had a rotary knob to turn the shoot- much like my fathers bobcat snow blower has (That is my only complaint). So happy there is zero
mixing of the gas and oil and yes its rather easy to pull the cord to turn on. Its easy to lift into a back of my truck with a friends help- but one strong guy could pick it up himself no problem.
The delivery process with Mowers at Jacks was rather organized. I received a call a day before, asking if someone would be there to sign for the product and It was delivered to my brothers house instead of trying to get it to the island.
Go with a Honda blower- the engine just purrs as it eats into the snow.
