Briggs and Stratton Snow Blower
I have the little older briggs model like this one. Only works in snow about 3-4inches which is perfect for pueblo. Light enough you can lift it into truck, just barely. Way way better than shoveling. It's like a lawn mower for snow. Pretty cool.
The rental house in Traverse City Michigan came with a 2 stage snow blower, I needed it.
Get a Husqvarna, you'll be much happier...
Like Greg sez, good for 3-4 inches. It looks like a snow thrower, not a blower(Google it, may also be called a 2 stage). It won't be good for deep snow, or wet heavy snow, especially if you get a lot of it.Pro trick: keep a spray bottle of varsol with a spritz of used motor oil added, to wet the auger housing and chute before use. Keeps snow esp. the wet stuff from bunging up chute. A heavier coating off season keeps rust at bay. Annual oil changes, and it will last decades.
I waited too long to roll mine out. I think it could handle 6 inches nicely, not 24...
They're single stage. Advertised as for "light to moderate" snowfall.
CW, I love yur blog. It is among the first few I hit every day. As a Yooper, (most of us do not call ourselves that but.....) if this is all the snowblower you need, just use a shovel, or a scoop.
Got one of these from home depot. Worked fine on my 12 inch snow yesterday. Even better than my two stage, larger blower. I recommend it.
