Wow. Dual wheels too. When I need a machine that big Ken, I think I"ll be saving my wishes for something I can ride. With four wheel drive. Maybe even with a heated cab. Made by John Deere.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm skeptical about walk-behind blowers that are larger than 36 inches. I've seen a couple throughout the past couple years and they just don't look to be reliable. They have aluminum gearbox and a lot of cheap plastic parts.
I don't think I'd ever own one, but I do think it'd be pretty cool to try out and have a little fun with though

I'm with blue hill any thing biger than 36'' it's better to be in a tractor. My father has a 1978 power king with 48'' blower ans has a cab. That thing can move alot of snow in a short time. To bad it has not run in 15 yrs.

Saw those for the first time last year. Impressive but they also had an impressive price from what I remember for what you're getting.

The thing I did notice was the amount of surging as it was running, need to rejet or something to smooth that out.

You ought to try and resurrect that old tractor. Those Power Kings are sweet. Probably has a Wisconsin engine?

I understand what you and Larry are saying but even though this beast is a handful, for contract work it's probably a lot quicker to load/unload and has to be more manuverable than a small tractor/blower combination. Eithere way I'm happy I'm not running that monster.
