How many snowblowers will you use same day.

I can't be the only one that pulls out multiple blowers on the same day to clear snow. My wife thinks it's weird, I currently own 6 blowers so ya. I think it's normal to pull a few of them to tackle the snow removal.

These are the three I used today, Toro 5/24, Snapper 7/24 and Frankensteins maiden run.

So this is the question, how many blowers have you pulled out in one day and used.

we only had one storm this year so far, and I had a boatload of blowers that are for sale and I wanted to try, so I used 6 last storm. I sold two of them, and tomorrow, even though it will be a light snow, I'll try out quite a few more., If I didn't have the inventory to test, I probably would only use one at a time.

I'm in the same situation as Cranman, buy used and sell them so I have several. I would use one but I also have neighbors so I use a bigger and wider one, but then again I feel things should get used so rotating is a good idea.
