I am in a position to purchase any snowblower I want BRAND NEW. Yes, the wife has given me permission. So should I try to repower the old Craftsman around 1989 Vintage or buy something new? If I go new, what in the world do I get? I'm sure I have just opened Pandora's Box with my request. So, I will be inundated with suggestions or no responses at all.
Thanks again for all the help last fall. You guys got me up and running. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Since you will be moving to a new home where the town does not clear snow, and to really endear yourself to your new neighbours, how about one of these.

You probably don't want a new one, a bit pricey but if you got the spare cash, why not. There are however lots of used ones around
