Snowblowerless what to do?

How does one go from having 12 blowers to 0 not good at all.

My problem is I fix and flip and I don't have a set blower that is mine.

Should I get a blower that is mine or just roll with what I have at the time.

May be better to have a small new tracked snow blower mule in the shed for those just in case moments when you get dumped on EH?

You wont need to feed it very much and all you will need to do is place a lot of Irish Spring soap in the shed and by the recoil housing or on top of the engine to keep the varmints away.

I looked at the cub cadet 3 stage units again today and seeing the second propeller/snow breaker in front of the impeller housing is......... If they used a simple 2 blade propeller they would have fewer issues.

I just sold my last ready to go machine today... BUT I have mine if snow should hit and I also have my backup, I will NEVER be without a blower again LOL Went through 2014 in new england with a little 22" snapper and that was tough, Now I will always have a running one ready to go. Gotta get the 2 I have left fixed up and serviced now and ready to sell, Pickings have been slim for new projects but still plenty to do.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

I usually do but man people this year are buying. I'm set to pick up an 11528 and a hs621 tomorrow so I'll be fine. I have a buyer for the 11528 already so it's not mine.

Just keep rolling with it. That's what I do with motorcycles. Never seems to be the right one. But I want to to drive them all.
I must have owned 15 bikes in the last 20 years. Same goes with women.

When you come across a blower worth keeping you will know it.
