Here in VT, we get snow, snow, and more snow all winter long.
I have a crazy steep driveway about 600 ft long and I have that
plowed & sanded. I also have a Sears 9hp gas blower that works
great for clean up around the top of the drive & near the house.
But, until now, I have been shoveling my deck every time it snows.
My deck is a good size and it takes quite a lot of work to keep up
this chore. Not anymore. This little machine gobbled up and spit out
the snow with ease. I read the reviews before buying & it seemed
like it would be able to handle the job. No problem.
It works great. The snow flies off my deck into the back yard.
If anyone is on the fence about buying this product, get off the
fence and buy it, you won't be disappointed.
The truth is I haven't had the chance to use it on a full blown blizzard or heavy snow storm! After a few heavy snow storms and my back killing me from shoveling I decided it was time to invest in one of these things. Obviously as it usually happens by the time I got it, the weather started turning better and all the heavy snow storms started missing Long Island.
We finally got a small 3" snow fall on Presidents day and this thing handled it with ease. I have a fairly large driveway and side door walkway and to clear it by shoveling would have take me quite some time but with this machine I was done in less than an hour.
So far it's excellent so let's see if holds up but with the extended warranty it comes with I don't anticipate any major issues, and price wise you can not beat it!!
