Husqvarna ST 330T has been developed for landowners who need a high-capacity, robust and durable snow thrower with superior traction. Plus the cool factor of its looks. Had a Track blower for 18 years and I kind of miss it.

My second choice would be Geno's blower he build up.

2014,TORO 1128 OXE Power Max HD

I like the quality and reliability of Honda and Yamaha products but also the idea of partially open auger housing/exposed augers. IMO it has better snow processing performance.

Canadian HS1336


Or a Yamaha YT1332

Not available new,so I would take a completely rebuilt/repainted to new condition Snapper 824.

It must be old enough to have the short metal shute and the Briggs & Stratton engine.

Why this one?Basically,I ran one for thirteen winters at a hotel I worked for and it was the best snowblower I've ever used-period.

Maybe they won't "get you" one but we can help you "build" your HSS1328.
