Are you man enough?

Do you think you could handle this monster. I don't think I could.

i almost bought something like that about a month ago. it was not quite as new but in really good shape and the owner was only asking like $500 or something like that which was super cheap for a monster that big. now after using my 30" wide machine i am glad i didn't buy it. my driveway isn't smooth enough to benefit from a machine that large. even the 30" machine is almost too large and clumsy. i have almost been thinking about trying to trade it for something a bit smaller possibly with autosteer. not really liking the trigger turning.

It would be perfect for turning compost piles.

looking at the pic the auger on the right side seems to be on backwards, no wonder it doesn't blow snow well

No and thank you, anything past 28" width with wheels is "NO BUENO" for me, used a friends 1332 ariens onces to clear hard plowed in snow and all that thing did was ride up the bank every chance it got. We'll talk if the owner puts tracks on the machine .

Interesting, I guess I'm not seeing it. They look correct to me, what am I missing?

My 1130se is probably as big as any normal person would want. As mentioned I also find I ride up on the EOD snow and sometimes have to back up and hit it again. Plus it takes up a lot of room in my garage.
