New Deluxe 24

Brand new to the forum and excited to finally have a real snow blower to deal with Boston winters. Thankfully I don't have a long driveway or sidewalk but when the snow flies around here it piles up quick. I upgraded from a single stage Honda HS720 that was great but living at the end of a cul de sac the plow piles were too much for it to handle. Love that this thing has an all steel chute as I saw some at the price point with plastic. Also added the weight bar to the front which I understand is a common issue. Now just waiting for a chance to use it...

Nice looking unit you have there. Just keep it well maintained, stored properly, and when you have time, browse through the manual Ö..

Keep both. A single-stage snowblower will outperform a two-stages snowblower in light snow.

Thought about it but decided if I could get a good amount for it I would sell. Posted it to Craigslist for $400 and had cash in hand a week later
