Gets The Job Done, Powerfully
I live at the tail end of a culdesac -- we collect the snow from the whole neighborhood. First winter... and unlike every other neighbor, we've had months of continuous snow. I quickly realized I'd need a good snow thrower if I was going to survive.

I found a well-maintained used version of this thrower (88691). It's been a champ! Easy to start, handles anything I throw at it. No issues AT ALL.

I assume the other review managed to get a couple of bad samples.
Pros: Durable, Features, Reliable, Easy To Store
