Hi mib

I took advantage of 15 minutes of free time today and some sunshine and went for a walk with the new blower... honestly I don't know what I was complaining about. The Autoturn handled great, there wasn't any snow, but I already know that won't be a problem. I have added some weight to the front and ArmorSkids since last time. I did notice that even in 1st gear it's much faster than my other blower, so I kept it in 1st for today. Does the Platinum pulley ratio that spins the impeller faster also speed up the drive? I do have quite a few tight turns for the driveways and sidewalks that I clear so I will likely keep it in 1st gear for those events. I may have been chasing the blower the first time out and that is why it felt more out of control. I never had any problem with long runs or wide turns, so I'll keep the upper speeds for the straightaways.

Hope you too find some success with your blower. good luck
