The hell with waiting for the city for this next snowstorm! I'm ready for whatever we end up getting!



Well, the two on the right are to be sold. The White Supremacist One on the left is new, though. I decided, thanks to BoB, that I should start celebrating my birthday early and often and also that I should move up to the Real Thing rather than the facsimiles! Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!



Speaking of BoB, it looks like he just did another drive-by on the forum!

Much bigger engine, OHV, all-steel construction, cast-iron gearcase with a 5 year warranty and, most importantly, hand warmers! smile

Really, it's about the controls. I HATED the controls on the Poulan Pro I was using (the black one in the photo). They fought every change, didn't engage in detents. It was a belt-drive with a non-adjustable belt, so when offered the slightest resistance, the wheels would stop. Not spin...as if they were making an attempt...but simply stop spinning so I'd have to push it all the time to go forward.

Using it was like having a shopping cart with four bad wheels and a 200 pound load. You just fought with it constantly and I think I was often more sore than if I had just shoveled.

We'll see how the Ariens does today. I was prompted to buy it by the forecast of a heavy, wet 12~18" this weekend. It ends up that we're likely to get half of that, but since it's not the powdery snow we normally get, it'll at least be a little bit of a test.

Fred, that's funny. You Canadian you.

Here, it would be a "Dunkin Donuts" cup holder.

Well, we got about 10" of a very heavy snow and the plows left about 20~24" of heavy stuff at the bottom of the three-lane wide driveway.

The Ariens TOTALLY kicked ass and went through it all like a not knife through butter. I've never owned a snowblower that worked so effortlessly, powerfully and smoothly!

This is my fourth snowblower since living in NH, and the best of the others only had 50% of the performance this one just had!

I'm beginning to think that my 10,000th post will just be a photo of this snowblower with boobies Photoshopped on....
