might trade sho28 for a 1336 12v

i think im gonna trade my new sho28 for a 1336 pro with 12v..its a 2005 model, but its in pretty good shape too...it had electric chute, but now has manual (which i prefer)...i love the 12v starter option(just an unecessary bell and whistle, but i think its neat)...i just need something bigger as my new driveway is gigantic....i think im going to trade, as it doesnt get much bigger than the 1336....

only thing bad is you'll most likely have to wait until next winter to use it

Have you thought about a tractor with a 2 stage blower. My son got a new John Deere D140 lawn tractor last summer and the 44" John Deere blower was installed in the fall. It does a super job and very quick. There is a huge difference between clearing his driveway and pathways with the tractor compared to the 12/32" Toro snowblower he had previously. It now looks so even and neat and tidy. For a large area it is hard to beat a tractor blower.

Like everything else the condition is important, chains and weights for traction and the hydro static transmission in good working order.

After the winter the blower is taken off and the 48" mower is put on for summer grass cutting and chores can be handled with a small 10 cubic ft trailer to haul stuff around.

Good luck with your decision.

A tractor blower would be pretty cool. Expensive, of course, especially if you don't have a suitable tractor already. The cheaper tractor blowers seem to often be single-stage.

But with the right machine, and the right situation (a long distance to clear, so not a lot of backing up & turning around), a tractor could be a sweet setup.

Of course, for the cost of a nice garden tractor & 2-stage blower, you could probably get an old pickup with a plow, and use it just for clearing the driveway That's not as fun, though. MyTractorForum.com could probably provide more feedback on tractor blowers.

But for the original discussion, the 1336 sounds like it would probably help speed up the process for you. For smaller storms, when you're not power-limited, the extra 8" of clearing width could be really nice. I don't know what engine the 28 SHO has, but a 13hp engine is still quite beefy, even if it's smaller than the SHO's.

Congrats! As long as you are happy with what you have. I love the auto start too, but so easy to start those with the rope. Does it have heated grips?
