Picked this little guy up this weekend...Path-Pro

Picked this little thing up this weekend. I wanted a small single stage that would compliment my Pro32 and I could use on the decks and for small snowfalls so I didn't have to pound a finishing nail with a 20lb sledge. Seems to run great so far. Don't like the no throttle control though. I don't like to start or shut things off at WOT.

I didn't get a chance to use it much, but I did use it in some relatively deep snow (~10-12") and it did rather well. I also used it on the driveway where we had a dusting of about 1/2", if that. It did blow it, but seeing there was hardly any there it didn't blow it very far. It basically just petered it out, which is what I expected for the little bit of snow.

Thanks for all the nice pictures. I have been thinking the same as you... for light snows and my back patio. For me... maybe next year. (: I'll give my wife time to adjust to my spending (:

Welcome.

I actually bought it up in the GB area. I bought it at Kimps in Howard while I was up visiting my parents for Christmas.

no, there's no cap there. The hole was never cast, so you're just seeing the aluminum. The oil is filled through the oil fill tube, the same place where you check it.

Thanks, I hope I do. It's just going to be nice not having to take out the big boy for every piddly little snow fall we get. Although, I have to blow out ours and our neighbors down the road a bit, so I have about 7,000SF to clear. We'll see how long the rubber paddles last. We have asphalt drives, so it shouldn't be as hard on them as if they were concrete.

Kimps is reputable. I frequent them. They let me try out a new Pro with tracks. It turned surprising well on dry blacktop. I sometimes think that I would be better off had I bought that one.
